It pays to have a well-run fleet. But it pays even more to have technology that keeps every mile safer and more comfortable for drivers. Detroit Assurance® with Active Brake Assist 5 is purpose-built to take your operations to the next level with optional, cutting-edge features that can impact your bottom line right away.
Active Speed Intervention (ASI) is an industry-first technology that’s engineered to help drivers avoid speeding as well as help new drivers adopt safe driving practices. Coming in January 2022, this feature is designed to work with Traffic Sign Display to automatically issue a passive alert when the driver exceeds the speed limit, followed by an active warning and de-throttling, if necessary. The pre-warning and warnings progress as follows:
Utilizing the forward-facing camera system, optional Active Lane Assist (ALA) features can help drivers stay safer and more comfortable on the road. ALA features come with steer assist, which reduces road vibrations, improves maneuverability when the driver aggressively turns the wheel at low speeds, and increases ease-of-steering through micro-adjustments, which can be helpful in crosswinds and tire blowouts.
Side Guard Assist (SGA) improves safety by alerting the driver to objects* in the truck’s passenger-side blind spot. As a passive collision mitigation system, SGA won’t de-throttle or stop your truck. Instead, it keeps the driver in control. If the truck’s passenger side gets too close to a moving person or object, the system will warn the driver not to complete the right turn or make a right-hand lane change.

Forward-facing video capture provides better insight into what occurs during crashes so they’re easier to prevent in the future. This safety feature utilizes the front-facing HD camera to record the truck’s activity on the road before, during and after severe traffic events.
The Detroit Assurance driver-facing camera can also capture footage of the driver during a collision. A total of 20 to 30 seconds of video from before, during and after the traffic event – along with other vehicle parameter data – is transmitted via a web portal to give fleet operations and safety personnel greater insight into the driver’s reactions.
