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.

WABCO’s advanced safety technologies are designed to assist the driver, however, they remain fully in control of the vehicle at all times. When a driver wishes to take control during an active steering event, the system instantly recognizes the driver input and this immediately overrides the active steering system.

With more than 500,000 OnGuard™ safety systems sold world-wide, WABCO is the global industry supplier of collision mitigation systems. Announced in 2018, the latest generation of OnGuard features a powerful new radar sensor. OnGuardACTIVE can now provide up to full autonomous braking on moving and stationary vehicles from a speed up to 80km/h even in poor visibility. OnGuardMAX enables autonomous collision avoidance with pedestrians intruding in front of the vehicle at speeds up to 20km/h.

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.

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. OnSide™ is a radar-based blind spot detection system with a coverage range of 160 degrees. 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.
