Judges’ comments

The ABA4 is a major safety advancement which should reduce collisions and therefore improve uptime. 

It will be particularly suited to urban environments and the pedestrian safety aspect could be used to improve the public’s general perception of the industry.

 

Highly commended

  • Renault Trucks Anti-Runaway Automated Park Brake

Finalists

  • DAF Trucks Silent Mode
  • Mercedes-Benz Trucks Active Brake Assist 4
  • Renault Trucks Electronic Parking Brake
