Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) have taken their sweet time moving from regular cars to commercial vehicles.
But, several automakers with their hands in both have been leading the charge.
Volvo's big-rig trucks now have automatic emergency braking, for example.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van goes above and beyond, though, by adding a huge chunk of the ADAS found on M-B's cars.
It might not have been a class of vehicle I was used to, but after digging into its tech, it felt like any other passenger car, which should be a good thing for the oodles of commercial-vehicle drivers out there.
The 2019 Sprinter has not one, but two different automatic emergency braking systems.
The standard AEB setup works with traffic traveling ahead of the van.
To meet German requirements for the system, it will first emit an audible warning after finding a major speed differential between the two vehicles, followed by light braking to give the driver the opportunity to hit the brakes.
The other system uses radar located in the rear bumper as part of its rear cross-traffic alert system.
