Mercedes-Benz Actros are fifth generation semi-automatic trucks

The vast majority of car, truck and even drone manufacturers have a future with autonomous vehicles, so it’s not surprising that we can see something new on the market from time to time. This time we have the opportunity to admire the fifth generation semi-automatic Actros trucks, which were presented to us by Mercedes-Benz, which is under the wings of Daimler.

The fifth-generation Actros may not be fully autonomous, but their advancement will definitely make it onto the dream list of every professional truck driver. They have been stuffed with a whole lot of new technology, based on solutions that Mercedes-Benz has been famous for on the European market for many years. It is the first mass-produced truck with rear view cameras to replace the side mirrors … and more!

The fifth generation Actros trucks are also equipped with Active Drive Assist, which enables semi-automated driving. This translates into automatic braking, acceleration, maintaining a safe distance from avoided cars and obstacles on the road, and even changing lanes. Of course, with the obligatory supervision of the person in charge. Of course, the entire system is based on a whole host of sensors and cameras.

It is rounded off with the improved Active Brake Assist 5 braking system, pedestrian detection and reverse collision avoidance, a fuel saving system of up to 5 percent, displays replacing the side mirrors and a multimedia-enhanced cockpit. This one allows the man to embrace all these extras and even breaks down the infotainment functions.
