Innovative Meritor WABCO OnLane™ Lane Departure Warning System Now Available For Freightliner Trucks

TROY, Mich., Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor WABCO, a leader in the integration of safety and efficiency technology for the North American commercial vehicle industry, announced that OnLane™, an innovative lane departure warning system, is available for immediate orders as an option on Freightliner Cascadia ® and Freightliner Cascadia Evolution models.  

Meritor WABCO's OnLane, powered with SafeTrak technology by Takata, is a forward-looking, vision-based lane departure warning system designed to monitor road markings and the vehicle's position in the lane. The new system delivers distinct and separate audible warnings to the driver if the vehicle leaves its lane unintentionally, encouraging the use of turn signals. OnLane also provides a unique feature called driver alertness warning (DAW), which detects erratic or degraded driving based on lane weaving and provides a warning to the driver. This powerful tool helps drivers stay aware of dangerous driving situations caused by fatigue or distraction.

"As the market leader in collision mitigation systems in North America, Meritor WABCO's OnLane helps improve safe driving, particularly when used as part of an overall integrated safety system," said Carsten Duevell,  senior director, Vehicle Control Systems, Meritor WABCO.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) is promoting voluntary adoption of lane departure warning systems to trucking fleets to encourage safe driving behaviors and reduce crashes. Commercial vehicle collisions involving property damage can cost fleets up to $197,000 each, while those resulting in fatalities can cost up to $1.2 million. FMCSA has estimated the payback for lane departure warning type systems to be as short as nine months and the payback as high as $6.55 for every dollar spent.

The OnLane lane departure warning system is a unique one-box solution integrating a camera and electronics. OnLane allows for quick and simple installation coupled with outstanding reliability. Vehicle alerts and warnings can be transmitted to fleet management systems through a telematics system. In addition, OnLane can be equipped as a retrofit solution to existing fleet vehicles in addition to OEM line build.
