This optional feature auto-enables once speed exceeds 37mph. The camera system detects the reflective paint and raised reflectors in lane markers. If the truck crosses those markers without the driver using a turn signal, a Lane Departure Warning (LDW, now standard with Detroit Assurance 5.0) will be issued first. An audible warning is sent through the corresponding speaker on the side of the truck that crosses the lane marker, along with a visual warning on the instrument panel. If the truck continues to veer out of its lane, it will be actively steered back into its lane.
When Adaptive Cruise Control is enabled, Lane Keep Assist uses micro-steering movements to keep the Cascadia centered in its detected lane. Lane Keep Assist works at all speeds, but some road curves may be too sharp for this feature. The driver can disable it by turning the feature off.
Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning/Protection off switches can disengage LKA and LDP.
Side Guard Assist detects objects in the truck’s blind spot and warns the driver not to change into an occupied lane or make a right turn that would cause the truck to make contact with an object or person.
The standard Detroit Assurance 5.0 HD camera with optional forward-facing video capture records video of the truck's activity on the road in case of severe traffic events.
In addition, the optional driver-facing camera can record video of the driver’s actions during the same time period. In such an event, a total of 20 to 30 seconds of recording from before, during and after such an occurrence - along with other vehicle parameter data - is transmitted to the Bendix SafetyDirect web portal for fleet operations and safety personnel to download and analyze.
