DETROIT ASSURANCE 5.0 STANDARD FEATURES

There’s nothing more important than making sure those behind the wheel stay safe, which is why the Cascadia comes standard with the Detroit Assurance® 5.0 suite of safety systems. By offering industry-leading collision mitigation, expensive repair costs as well as downtime can be significantly reduced. A safer truck means you keep your drivers and your equipment on the road and working.

ACTIVE BRAKE ASSIST

Active Brake Assist 5.0 (ABA 5.0) is always on, detecting the distances to objects ahead in its path, calculating speed, and determining if a warning or braking action is necessary. In addition, ABA 5.0 features full braking on moving and stopped pedestrians as well as full braking on stationary and moving objects. The camera and radar signals are fused together for greater object recognition, which allows for enhanced braking capabilities.

How Active Brake Assist Works

1. INITIAL WARNING / NO BRAKING

The driver receives a simultaneous visual dash alert and pulsating warning tone.

2. WARNING / PARTIAL BRAKING

If the driver does not respond to the visual/audio warning, the system will trigger a visual dash alert with solid warning tone and simultaneously initiate partial braking.

3. WARNING/FULL BRAKING

If there is still no driver input, the system will trigger a visual dash alert, solid warning tone, and engage in full braking.

4. ABA FULL BRAKING EVENT FINISHED, BRAKES ON HOLD

At this point, the full braking event is finished, with the truck at a complete stop and the brakes being held.

ABA FULL BRAKING ON MOVING PEDESTRIAN

When the signal from the radar and camera system detects a moving pedestrian who is about to cross the truck’s path, an audible and visual warning occurs with simultaneous partial braking, followed by full braking if the driver does not react.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC) TO 0 MPH

ACC automatically adjusts your truck’s cruising speed to maintain a safe following distance — 3.6 seconds by default on the Cascadia — from other vehicles in its path, allowing the truck to remain in cruise control longer. The following distance can be optionally adjusted between 2.4 and 3.6 seconds within the interactive dash display.

ACC TO 0 MPH IN DETROIT ASSURANCE 5.0

ACC now works in stop-and-go traffic. If the vehicle in front comes to a stop, the new Cascadia will also come to a full stop — 0 mph — and hold indefinitely. If the vehicle in front starts to move within two seconds of coming to a stop, then the truck will resume moving at a safe following distance. If the complete stop is longer than two seconds, then the driver must push the throttle or press set/resume. ACC to 0 mph helps reduce driver fatigue, which improves the overall driver experience.

Tailgate Warning

Independent of the ABA and ACC features, Tailgate Warning will activate according to a truck’s speed and the following distance. If a driver remains at the following distances for 10 seconds or longer, a visual dash alert will get triggered:

  • At speeds greater than 45 miles per hour, following within 2.7 seconds
  • At speeds between 35 and 45 miles per hour, following between 1.8 and 2.7 seconds
  • At speeds between 25 and 35 miles per hour, following at 1.8 seconds or less

Once activated, Tailgate Warning will deactivate only at speeds of less than 20 miles per hour. By remaining in any Tailgate Warning mode for 10 seconds or longer, the event will become reportable via J1939 to the selected telematics system.

Detroit Assurance 5.0 Additional Features

Traffic Sign Display

The camera recognizes the speed limit and other traffic signs, and then displays those signs in the instrument cluster. Traffic Sign Display has the capability to display two signs at the same time.

Automatic Wipers/Headlamps

The new Cascadia comes equipped with a Rain/Light Sensor that detects precipitation on the windshield and low-light situations. When wiper controls are set to auto position and it starts to rain or snow, the sensor will automatically turn the wipers on. Once the precipitation stops, the sensor will turn the wipers off. When the headlight switch is in “auto” position, the Rain/Light Sensor detects low light and the headlights will automatically turn on. When lighting conditions improve, the headlights will automatically turn off.

Intelligent High Beam

When the driver sets the headlight switch to auto high beam, the Detroit Assurance camera technology automatically switches to low beams when it detects the headlights or tail lights of another vehicle, as well as city lights. Once the vehicle or city lights are out of sight, the high beams automatically come back on.
