TROY, Mich. -- Meritor Wabco has announced its OnLane lane departure warning system now has the ability to record and save videos of critical safety events.
“This additional and robust safety feature responds to specific needs of fleet customers that utilize the most advanced, integrated safety components, including stability control, traction control, collision mitigation and lane departure warning,” said Carsten Duevell, senior director, vehicle control systems, Meritor Wabco. “Critical event video-capturing is a valuable enhancement to our Integrated Safety Systems product line.”
OnLane is a vision-based lane departure warning system designed to monitor road markings and the vehicle’s position in the lane. The system provides audible warnings to the driver if the vehicle strays from its lane without signaling. It also features a driver alertness warning feature, which detects erratic or degraded driving based on lane weaving, and provides a warning to the driver.
The video-capturing feature is triggered by critical events, such as sudden deceleration. The system captures forward-looking colour video fo the scene ahead for the 10 seconds before - and five seconds after - the start of the event. Videos can be downloaded manually using Meritor Wabco’s Toolboox diagnostic software.
The new feature is available immediately.
