Test Your Knowledge of Vehicle Technology: Answers

  1. A, B, and D – The most widely equipped ADAS options are LDW, ACC, and AEB on larger commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). Also available as options on CMVs are backup cameras, blindspot monitoring systems, forward collision warning without active braking, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Electronic stability control (ESC) has long been a standard safety system on commercial vehicles.
  2. True. Platooning is the electronic connection of two vehicles operating in a synchronized fashion via an electronic, over-air link. In many states, large trucks must maintain a following distance of 500 feet. This traffic code is an issue. However, many states have modified their traffic codes to allow electronically tethered vehicles to operate close to each other in pilot testing.
  3. False. Vehicle driving simulators augment road training. VDSs allow a carrier to prepare drivers better for things like black ice, tire blowouts, winter driving conditions, heavy rain, jackknives, rollovers, and other hazardous driving situations without danger. Simulators allow drivers to practice any situation repeatedly until they develop a conditioned response and build confidence. High-end simulators use actual motion to closely replicate the feeling the driver will have in an actual vehicle. One to five screens in front of the driver can mimic conditions that may be encountered.
