Lane departure warning technology for trucks and buses
First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
US-headquartered WABCO has introduced what they say is their next step in advanced driver assistance systems with OnLane technology, a lane departure warning system (LDWS) for trucks and buses.
OnLane increases vehicle safety by providing the driver with visual and acoustic warnings or an optional seat-vibration warning, in case of unintentional lane departure, which is one of the most common causes of accidents involving commercial vehicles.
OnLane integrates a camera and an electronic control unit into a single, compact box and can be mounted at the top or bottom of the vehicle’s windshield. OnLane is fully compliant with the European Union’s regulation that requires LDWS on new trucks and buses as of November 2013.
WABCO will also supply an aftermarket kit to retrofit trucks and buses with OnLane, enabling fleets to further improve vehicle safety and driver effectiveness.
