Perfect teamwork: Sideguard Assist and MirrorCam provide for greater safety

Recommended Posts

Daimler Press Release  /  March 13, 2019

The Sideguard Assist has been available since 2016 in the Mercedes-Benz Actros and minimises the probability of dangerous accidents on the co-driver's side when the vehicle turns to the right. It has now been revised and improved for the digital future of trucks.

In the new Actros, Sideguard Assist uses the MirrorCam display to warn drivers visually when the system detects a moving or stationary object in the monitored zone on the co-driver's side of the truck. The system can thus warn drivers in good time on the monitor of cyclists or pedestrians they may not have seen. MirrorCam and Sideguard Assist work hand-in-hand – overloading the driver with information is thus avoided and all of the relevant warnings are located together in a single location.

In line with the launch of the new Actros, Sideguard Assist can now additionally support the driver under certain conditions when turning to the left.
