No stopping Daimler
DAIMLER recently delivered the 10,000th Mercedes-Benz truck with an Active Brake Assist system. It activates the brakes when it detects an imminent collision with the rear of a vehicle ahead and the driver fails to react. After some reluctance by operators to take up the system, it’s now gaining more acceptance. Helping the cause is the recognition by insurance companies of its safety benefits through discounts on premiums.
