At CES Daimler announced that the Cascadia big rig would come standard with Detroit Assurance 5.0, a suite of level 2 advanced driver's aids.
A standard emergency braking system can bring the truck to a complete stop with no help from the driver.
During a demo at 35 miles an hour, the truck stopped with feet to spare.
Also on tap is an improved adaptive cruise control.
The truck can now come to a complete stop behind a lead car and pause for two seconds.
Automatic windshield wipers and headlights are also standard.
A blind-spot monitoring system as well as lane keeping assist and departure mitigation are optional.
Daimler is investing half a billion Euros into its semi-automated class 8 trucks, and hopes to deploy a fleet of Level 4, high-automation semi-trucks within the next 10 years.
