WABCO to Invests $17 Million in New U.S. Manufacturing Facility in Charleston, South Carolina

WABCO will expand its manufacturing capabilities in North America. The company will invest $17 million to build a manufacturing site in Charleston, South Carolina (USA) to meet increasing customer demand for its advanced air disc brakes (ADB), energy-efficient air compressors and related systems. Construction of the new, 145,000-square-foot facility is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The company will then relocate from its exiting Charleston site to the new facility. WABCO anticipates the new production facility to be fully operational by the first quarter of 2016.

This information can help fleets to identify and reduce potentially hazardous driving maneuvers and improve overall operating efficiency.

WABCO Launches OnGuardACTIVE in North America

WABCO will launch its Collision Mitigation System (CMS) for trucks and buses in North America. WABCO's OnGuardACTIVE features superior radar and is effective in all seasons. WABCO's OnGuardACTIVE utilizes a powerful 77GHz radar sensor that maintains the system's high performance in all weather conditions. Its superior performance is particularly vital in poor visibility situations such as white outs, heavy rain, dense fog, blinding sunshine or night time driving when camera-based sensors used on other collision mitigation systems may be impaired. OnGuardACTIVE's radar offers up to five times higher bandwidth than 24GHz radar-based collision mitigation systems available in the market. The system's dual mode function addresses both long range and adjacent lane views. This enables higher accuracy in object detection, and a more than 30% longer range than alternative systems. OnGuardACTIVE is capable of analyzing traffic up to 650 feet ahead, thus recognizing impending critical driving situations earlier. OnGuardACTIVE alerts the driver to potentially critical driving situations via acoustic, visual and haptic signals. Should the vehicle operator fail to take corrective action, the system provides active braking on moving, stopping and stationary vehicles to mitigate or prevent impending rear-end collisions. OnGuardACTIVE is capable of delivering up to full braking on moving and stopping vehicles and can bring the vehicle to a complete stop. It can also deliver partial braking on stationary vehicles.
