ATLANTA – September 25, 2017 – Detroit today announced that the Detroit™ Connect Analytics safety reporting feature will be included at no charge for five years with the purchase of the Detroit Assurance® suite of safety systems on the new Freightliner Cascadia®. Detroit Assurance 4.0 seamlessly integrates into the new Cascadia, offering new, advanced features that deliver exceptional control and protection. The safety reporting feature will be available beginning in October 2017 and will also be offered retroactively at no charge for all new Cascadias spec’d with Detroit Assurance built before October.
Safety reporting will be accessible via the Detroit Connect portal. This feature reports and scores safety event data such as lane departure warnings, collision mitigation braking, hard and severe brake events and following distance warnings. Additionally, on-board sensor readings are captured from 15 seconds before a fault event occurred to 15 seconds after specific events, letting users know what to focus on to improve driver behavior.
“Customers who spec Detroit Assurance 4.0 will have access to their safety event data via the Detroit Connect portal, giving them actionable information they can use to help put their drivers on the path towards accident-free driving,” said Jason Krajewski, director, truck connectivity, Daimler Trucks North America.
Users can view data for a single trip, a single vehicle, or their entire fleet over different periods of time. This allows customers to spend less time crunching data and more time optimizing vehicle and driver performance.
As previously announced, the Detroit Connect Analytics fuel efficiency performance feature will also be available in an upgrade package with the new Cascadia beginning in October 2017.
