WABCO’s mastery of single-piston ADB technology has been refined over more than two decades and its world-class quality has been proven in more than six million wheel-ends, including for the most demanding heavy-duty truck applications. Exceeding the performance standards of other ADB systems on the market, WABCO’s pioneering single-piston MAXX™ technology is the definitive industry benchmark offering a new lighter weight, high-performance and low drag torque design which boosts efficiency and enables increased transport payloads.

In addition to driving improved vehicle safety, fuel economy and efficiency, the technology advances WABCO is pioneering today provide the building blocks for the autonomous vehicles of the future. This includes WABCO OnSide™, an advanced radar-based blind spot detection system for commercial trucks and trailers. When used in conjunction with WABCO’s OnLaneASSIST™ lane keeping assist system, OnSide has the capability to enable active collision avoidance. WABCO’s acquisition of R.H. Sheppard in 2017 powerfully combined WABCO’s braking and ADAS systems with Sheppard’s industry-leading steering technologies for commercial vehicles. OnLaneASSIST is WABCO’s first Advanced Driver Assistance System based on Sheppard’s U.S. steering capabilities integrated with Nexteer’s steering automation technology. Sheppard provides key capabilities for lateral vehicle control through active steering. OnLaneASSIST combines that with the ability to have longitudinal control through active braking, stability and suspension controls. Full dynamic control of commercial vehicles – lateral and longitudinal – is necessary to progressively achieve the industry’s vision of autonomous driving.

OnLaneASSIST is one of WABCO’s latest technology breakthroughs to improve commercial vehicle safety. It combines unique active steering technology with a forward-looking camera for active lane correction. The system helps to avoid potential collisions and run-off-road accidents. This technology was unveiled at NACV in September 2017. OnSide™ is a radar-based blind spot detection system with a premium coverage range of 160 degrees released at MCE in October 2017. Small vehicles in a driver’s blind spot can lead to extensive collision costs and damages. OnSide visually warns the driver when a moving vehicle enters the blind spot and, when the turn signal is engaged, the system can warn the driver audibly or with a seat vibration. OnSide has best-in-class radar with the most range with a 10-meter detection zone.
