2020 Mercedes-Benz Actros The Best Safety Truck (Assistance Systems)
Mercedes-Benz Trucks drives forward truck safety: new systems and intensive dialogue with all participants
Active Brake Assist 5 – as effective at the tail end of a traffic jam as in pedestrian detection
For years, a large proportion of accidents involving heavy-duty freight vehicles have concerned collisions in parallel traffic: accidents in which a truck collides with a preceding or stationary vehicle due to the driver’s distraction, too short a distance to the vehicle in front or failure to adjust the vehicle speed, for example. Active Brake Assist (ABA) of the fifth generation, the latest highlight in a long series of continued logical developments of the automatic emergency braking assist systems from Mercedes-Benz Trucks, can for the most part prevent such accidents within the system limits.
Semi-automated driving with Active Drive Assist
Active Drive Assist (ADA) also represents a milestone in safety – a system which, in the case of the new Actros for the first time worldwide in a production truck, allows partially automated driving according to level 2 of automated driving. Under certain preconditions it actively supports the driver in the longitudinal and lateral guidance of the truck and can automatically maintain the following distance, accelerate and steer if the necessary system conditions such as sufficient curve radius or clearly visible road markings are met. In other words, the perfect synthesis of safety and comfort.
Another world première: the new MirrorCam for better all-around visibility
A big problem for many truck drivers is monitoring all aids for indirect visibility from the vehicle. Keeping six mirrors and three windows in view at the same time, in addition to complex road traffic, can be overtaxing in some situations. To relieve the driver in this task, in both the new Actros and the Arocs with MirrorCam a camera system replaces the conventional main and wide-angle mirrors for the first time in a production truck. As standard equipment, the system operates exclusively with two digital cameras attached on the right and left to the roof frame and two 15-inch displays.
Sideguard Assist available from Mercedes-Benz Trucks ex works or as a retrofit solution has been further improved in the new Actros
The problem has already been addressed in connection with the MirrorCam: right-turn manoeuvring in urban traffic. In front, the driver has to pay attention to traffic lights and road signs as well as oncoming and cross traffic, while at the same time keeping an eye out for pedestrians and cyclists to the left and right. Unprotected road users are often not aware that a truck driver may not see them in certain situations, however. Added to that is the problem that heavy-duty trucks with a large wheelbase or trailer have turning characteristics not always easily understood by cyclists: before turning, trucks first drive straight ahead into the intersection, in order to allow for the following characteristics of the semi-trailer or trailer.

I had a rare opportunity to purchase a Semi Joe Truck Shop build.. and I scooped it up! From the moment I set eyes on to this custom 6×6 Steiger / “ERTL” Conversion to Radio Control – AND it was 6×6 – there was no way I wouldn’t bring it here! I felt as I was compelled to showcase this unit because it truly is a perfect look at the skills of SEMI JOE. From what I understand, this retired Veteran has been building RC models for customers since the mid 1980’s and has built more than 1200 models! Literally a living legend in the community of the RC hobby, owning a piece of his artwork is a true privilege. It’s not cheap.. but its pure quality. Built to last, and built to be tough – I know that my machine is ready to take on a whole new workload!
Semi Joe put a Plow and Winch system (with servo), so I can clear out my pathways when the snow fly’s.. or I can remove the plow and use the winch to pull me out of sticky situations. This 6×6 has 12 tires, and are mounted on RC4WD puller Wheels.
