The Mercedes-Benz Actros Trucks are equipped with ADR safety equipment which facilitates the vehicle technically for transportation of hazardous liquids.
Mercedes-Benz Trucks have been pioneering the industry for more than 50 years when it comes to active and passive safety features. Besides the standard electronically controlled Telligent® braking system with Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Acceleration skid control (ASR), the truck is also equipped with the optional Active Brake Assist. The Active Brake Assist system operates with three radar beams, which constantly scan an area of 1 to 200 meters ahead of the truck. Radar detection of a collision with a moving obstacle would result in the driver been given a visual and audile alert by the system. Depending on the severity of the situation, the system will react with a partial braking maneuver and, if necessary, even initiates an emergency braking to standstill. Thus, the Active Brake Assist helps to avoid dangerous rear-end collisions, for instance at the end of a traffic jam, and minimizes the impact for occupants in case a collision is inevitable.
