Frieghtliner has announced they will be using the Meritor WABCO OnGuard collision warning system. The system is a forward-looking, mono-pulse radar-based adaptive cruise control system with active braking. Active braking improves vehicle safety by automatically using the vehicle brakes to alert the driver and decelerate the vehicle when the truck gets too close to the vehicle in front of it. The system is officially called the OnGuard Collision Safety System. OnGuard provides visual, as well as audible, warnings to the driver in addition to braking the truck.
