Ken­worth T680 and T880 Of­fer Mer­i­tor WABCO ONGUARDACTIVE as Op­tion

Road Today - - CONTENTS -

Ken­worth is mak­ing Mer­i­tor WABCO ONGUARDACTIVE avail­able as an op­tion on Ken­worth T680 and T880 mod­els.

The ad­vanced radar­based safety sys­tem is “al­ways on” and fea­tures for­ward collision warn­ing, collision mit­i­ga­tion and adaptive cruise con­trol. The sys­tem mea­sures the truck’s po­si­tion in re­la­tion to other ve­hi­cles and ob­jects; de­tects mov­ing, stopped or sta­tion­ary ve­hi­cles ahead; and uses au­di­ble, vis­ual and short brake pulse warn­ings to alert the driver of a pos­si­ble rear- end collision. When ap­pro­pri­ate, ONGUARDACTIVE will ap­ply the brakes to help avoid or mit­i­gate a rear- end collision.

“Mer­i­tor WABCO’S ONGUARDACTIVE safety sys­tem is an im­por­tant, new op­tion for our on– high­way and vo­ca­tional flag­ships, the T680 and T880, Ken­worth’s two most tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced ve­hi­cles,” said Kurt Swi­hart, Ken­worth mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor. “Ken­worth con­tin­ues to in­tro­duce sys­tems that can help driv­ers main­tain safe dis­tance, mit­i­gate col­li­sions and op­er­ate safely in rapidly chang­ing and chal­leng­ing road con­di­tions.”
