Vision system

  • 17-Sep-2010 10:03 EDT


Takata’s SafeTraK commercial truck vision system offers an added driver-alertness feature that detects and monitors erratic driving or weaving within the lanes. The system has two alerts: one for indicating drivers may need rest and one for inadvertent lane departures. The driver-alertness feature, available on the SafeTraK 3 product, includes vehicle monitoring software that tracks the time of day, number of alerts, and variability in driving performance. Companies can use the SafeTraK 3 system to help their drivers better understand their own driving patterns and make adjustments to improve overall road safety. The SafeTraK system is currently available on many North American truck platforms including Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Volvo, and Mack.
