Kenworth Truck Co. now offers the Wabco OnGuardACTIVE as an option for the Kenworth T880 and W990 models.

OnGuardACTIVE is an advanced driver assistance system that helps mitigate or avoid rear-end collisions and provides adaptive cruise control. The 77 gigahertz, radar-only advanced emergency braking and ACC system detects moving, stopped and stationary objects, and provides visual, audible and haptic warnings. If necessary, OnGuardACTIVE will apply the brakes to avoid or mitigate a forward collision, according to Wabco.

Kenworth first began offering the system on the Kenworth T680.
