Active Drive Assist 2 is available for certain Actros models and assists the driver not only in maintaining as safe a distance as possible to the vehicle travelling in front, but also in staying in the middle of the lane. Particularly on long, monotonous stretches of road, it therefore offers greater safety as well as stress-relieving comfort and can better driver-fitness safety.
The new features of Active Drive Assist 2 make a major contribution to road safety. If the driver does not hold the steering wheel for a prolonged period of time, either by choosing to ignore legislation or as a result of becoming unwell, a warning cascade starts and within the system's limits, it can even decelerate the vehicle staying within its current lane down to a standstill if the driver fails to react.
Active Drive Assist 2 extends the functionality of Proximity Control Assist. In addition to automatic distance control with stop-and-go function, it can also actively help the driver to stay in lane. To do this, it combines the enhanced radar and camera technologies of Active Brake Assist 5 with the electrically assisted steering and Lane Keeping Assist.
