The Freightliner Group, a unit of DaimlerChrysler, showcased developments in heavy-duty truck safety technology at the DaimlerChrysler Innovations Symposium. Freightliner demonstrated advanced systems featuring electronic stability control, electronically controlled braking systems, lane guidance systems, lane departure warning, radar collision warning with adaptive cruise control and a side-visibility camera.

Installed on a Freightliner Class 8 demonstration truck, these active safety technologies are designed to help truck drivers safely operate the vehicle and to help avoid heavy-duty truck accidents.
