WABCO and IVECO Collaboration Confirms WABCO’s Industry-Leadership for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in Europe
IVECO is collaborating with WABCO to enhance the safety, efficiency and market competitiveness of its Stralis and Eurocargo trucks having applied its most advanced OnGuardACTIVE and OnGuardMAX solutions, as well as a wide portfolio of additional WABCO safety technologies including ESCsmartTM electronic stability control (ESC) and braking systems. IVECO and WABCO are also partners of the ENSEMBLE innovation consortium, co-funded by the European Union, which will contribute to further multi-brand truck platooning in real-world environments.
WABCO is the global industry’s original equipment manufacturer (OEM) independent leader for collision mitigation systems and ADAS, with more than 450,000 OnGuard safety systems sold worldwide. The scalable and modular architecture of OnGuard solutions offer a number of powerful differentiating benefits for OEMs. Featuring a new radar sensor which offers the commercial vehicle industry’s longest radar detection range, as well as the widest near-range field of view, WABCO’s OnGuardACTIVE can now provide up to full autonomous emergency braking on moving and stationery vehicles from a highway speed up to 80 km per hour – even in poor visibility conditions. WABCO’s OnGuardMAX utilizes the radar sensor integrated with a new jointly developed Mobileye® camera powered by its industry-leading EyeQ®4 chip. This system further differentiates itself by enabling autonomous collision avoidance with pedestrians intruding in front of the vehicle at speeds up to 20km/h.
“Powerfully demonstrating WABCO‘s pioneering global ADAS leadership, we are delighted that IVECO has chosen to collaborate with us to support their leading truck brands,” said Jorge Solis, WABCO President, Truck, Bus and Car OEM Division. “We look forward to bringing the power of our technology and our advanced systems engineering expertise to support IVECO in their mission to enable safer transportation systems.”
WABCO’s OnGuard technologies will be presented alongside other innovations that are helping to enable the industry’s vision for autonomous mobility, at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018.
