The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) being offered by Tata Motors include a Collision Mitigation System (CMS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) for PRIMA and SIGNA trucks.
Working in collaboration with WABCO India, Tata Motors will implement WABCO’s pioneering technologies which have been optimized for India’s operating conditions. Designed to help mitigate some of the most common causes of accidents involving commercial vehicles, advanced driver assistance system solutions enhance vehicle safety, driver comfort and effectiveness.
Through this partnership, Tata Motors becomes the first OEM to provide a host of specific safety technologies in their vehicles, including Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Automatic Traction Control (ATC), Hill Start Aid (HSA), a Collision Mitigation System (CMS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS).
Commenting on this development, Mr. Girish Wagh, President – Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors Ltd, said, “Tata Motors has always pioneered transformation in the Indian commercial vehicle Industry with the launch of innovative new products and services.
