WHAT: Active Lane Assist trucking application
INNOVATION: To help bring Class 8 trucks to a higher level of safety, Bosch’s SAE Level 2 autonomous technology uses a multipurpose camera’s lane-detection algorithm to recognize and predict a truck’s position within a driving lane, actively guiding it through curves — even without driver effort in some cases. The system also can track other objects around the truck to adjust its speed and, if necessary, bring it to a full stop.
FIRST CUSTOMER: Daimler Trucks North America
To help bring Class 8 trucks to a higher level of safety, while also creating a tool for driver retention and recruiting, Bosch’s SAE Level 2 Active Lane Assist autonomous technology uses a multipurpose camera’s lane-detection algorithm for vehicle position recognition and prediction within a driving lane.
The detection technology works with an electrohydraulic steering system to actively maintain the vehicle’s position within the lane boundaries. Depending on the truck’s speed and curve radius, this could happen with or without driver effort.
The vehicle also has the ability to track other moving and stationary objects around the truck, and adjusts its speed to avoid collisions or bring it to a full stop.
