Commercial Vehicle Rollover Prevention Tech

This project is for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to conduct a study to evaluate the safety effectiveness of Collision Mitigation Braking (CMB) systems for heavy trucks. CMB systems are forward-looking, radar-based systems comprising warning and adaptive cruise control (ACC) with active braking and can assist a driver by providing deceleration prior to the driver being able to apply the brakes in emergency situations. The CMB's system's adaptive cruise control and automated braking can help to encourage drivers to have safer following distances and provide active braking, as needed in the situations where the system detects a potential crash imminent situation.
