Stuttgart – Even more safety for the buses and coaches from Mercedes‑Benz and Setra. For ten years, the automatic emergency braking assistance system Active Brake Assist has been preventing accidents in touring coaches from Mercedes‑Benz and Setra. Now Daimler Buses is introducing the Active Brake Assist 4 generation (ABA 4) for all touring coaches. ABA 4 now for the first time also automatically initiates a braking manoeuvre for pedestrians in the form of partial braking. ABA 4 will become part of the standard specification of all touring coaches from Mercedes‑Benz and Setra in 2019. City buses in turn benefit from the new Preventive Brake Assist, the first active braking assistance system in this category of vehicles. If there is a critical risk of collision, the system warns the driver and initiates partial braking at the same time. Finally, Mercedes‑Benz and Setra are launching Sideguard Assist, the first turning assistance system for buses and coaches. With these three assistance systems, Mercedes‑Benz and Setra are highlighting their pioneering role in active safety.
