Active Brake Assist 3 (ABA 3).

Emergency braking also for stationary obstacles.

Active Brake Assist 3 (ABA 3)* automatically initiates emergency braking if there is a risk of collision with a slower vehicle in front or also in the case of a stationary obstacle.

The Travego with ABA 3 not only mitigates the consequences of a serious accident, but it is also capable of independently preventing accidents within the limits of what is physically possible. ABA 3 reduces accidents up to a speed of 60 km/h in case of stationary obstacles, thus exceeding the requirements of current European legislation. Mercedes-Benz installs the new Active Brake Assist 3 in the Travego as standard[1] if the customer orders the high-deck touring coach with adaptive cruise control (ART).

* optional equipment in conjunction with ART
