Test Drive The New Freightliner Cascadia Featuring Level 2 Automation Technology
Las Vegas, Nevada – Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) debuted their new Cascadia in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The truck maker announced their latest enhancements to the Freightliner new Cascadia® includes integration of Level 2 automation technology, which is the first SAE Level 2 automated truck in series production in North America.
Level 2 automation means the truck is capable of both lateral (steering) and longitudinal (acceleration/deceleration) control. “Automating acceleration, deceleration, and steering reduces the chance for human error, mitigates collisions, and can potentially save lives,” DTNA said in a statement.
Further, DTNA contends, “These technologies can also enhance the driver experience by making the truck-driving task easier, thereby improving driver comfort and well-being.”
