WABCO TO SUP­PLY HY­DRAULIC POWER STEER­ING SYS­TEMS TO TATA MO­TORS

PMV Middle East - - PEAK PERFORMANCE -

Wabco has signed an agree­ment with Tata Mo­tors to sup­ply power steer­ing sys­tems. This is Wabco’s first ma­jor steer­ing sys­tem deal in In­dia fol­low­ing its Septem­ber 2017 ac­qui­si­tion of Us-based R.H. Shep­pard, a sup­plier of in­dus­trylead­ing steer­ing tech­nolo­gies for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles.

As a full sys­tems tier one sup­plier, Wabco will pro­vide its hy­draulic power steer­ing sys­tems to help Tata Mo­tors meet in­creas­ing de­mand for new heavy-duty trucks lo­cally fol­low­ing re­cent leg­is­la­tion changes to re­strict axle weight loads. Wabco’s M110 heavy-duty hy­draulic power steer­ing gears and assem­blies meet Tata Mo­tors’ power-steer­ing per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity re­quire­ments.

P. Ka­niap­pan, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Wabco In­dia, said: “The in­tro­duc­tion of Wabco’s steer­ing sys­tems for the first time in In­dia fur­ther dif­fer­en­ti­ates our strong part­ner­ship with Tata Mo­tors, while help­ing them to meet this ad­di­tional level of de­mand.”

Tata Mo­tors is also col­lab­o­rat­ing with Wabco to pro­vide a host of spe­cific safety tech­nolo­gies in their ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol (ESC), au­to­matic trac­tion con­trol (ATC), hill start aid (HSA), col­li­sion mit­i­ga­tion sys­tem (CMS) and lane de­par­ture warn­ing sys­tem (LDWS).

The Wabco col­li­sion mit­i­ga­tion sys­tem (On­guardas­sist) im­ple­mented by Tata Mo­tors alerts the driver to po­ten­tially crit­i­cal driv­ing sit­u­a­tions via acous­tic, vis­ual and hap­tic sig­nals.

Should the driver fail to take cor­rec­tive ac­tion, the sys­tem pro­vides ac­tive brak­ing on mov­ing and stop­ping ve­hi­cles to mit­i­gate or pre­vent im­pend­ing rear-end col­li­sions. The sys­tem uti­lizes a 77GHZ radar sen­sor that main­tains the sys­tem’s high per­for­mance in all weather con­di­tions and poor vis­i­bil­ity sit­u­a­tions such as heavy rain, dense fog, blind­ing sun­shine and night-time driv­ing.
