The Meritor Wabco OnGuardActive radar-based safety system is now available as an option on Kenworth T680 and  T880 models.  The safety system 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 causing a possible rear-end collision.  OnGuardActive is also capable of applying brakes when appropriate 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 a safe distance, mitigate collisions and operate in rapidly changing and challenging road conditions.”
