WABCO to Offer ADAS, Braking Technology for Hino's New Series

WABCO (WBC) to provide Hino with ADAS and braking control technology for the latest XL Series of Class 7 and 8 heavy-duty trucks in North America.

WABCO Holdings Inc. WBC announced entering a partnership with the premier commercial truck provider, Hino Trucks. Per the agreement, WABCO will offer its array of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and the latest generation of braking control technology, which will be used in Hino’s to-be-launched lineup of XL Series Class 7 and 8 heavy-duty trucks in North America.

WABCO’s wide range of safety and vehicle control technologies are expected to support Hino’s series of heavy-duty trucks, which are scheduled to begin production in the early phase of 2019. The XL7 and XL8 series will consist of WABCO’s OnGuardACTIVE collision mitigation system that will assist drivers to identify, and respond to risky weather conditions or traffic, thus, preventing rear-end collisions. Moreover, if the driver doesn’t act against the alerts, OnGuardACTIVE is going to apply the brakes by itself to stop the truck.

Further, Hino’s trucks will also consist WABCO’s OnLaneALERT Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) to help drivers avoid unintentional lane drifting, leading to accidents, which is a common occurrence for heavy-duty vehicles.
