Wabco said it would provide braking control technology and a range of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for Hino Trucks' upcoming heavy duty truck launch in North America.

The truck maker will start building its XL Series line of Class 7 and 8 trucks in early 2019 and Wabco will supply a modular braking system called mBSP to enable anti-lock braking (ABS), electronic stability control and various ADAS products. These include a collision mitigation system and lane departure warning system.

"Wabco's global technology leadership in the commercial vehicle industry makes it the perfect partner to support our entry to the North American heavy-duty truck segment," said Yoshinori Noguchi, president and CEO, Hino Trucks North America.

"Wabco's pioneering ADAS and modular braking system platforms provide significant advantages for global original equipment manufacturers seeking to penetrate new markets," said Jon Morrison, Wabco president. "We are honored that Hino has selected Wabco to support the North American launch of its next generation heavy duty trucks."
