In-depth review of the new Mercedes-Benz Actros 2548 LS Tractor Unit. We have a look at the 'wing mirror' mirrorless technology aka Mirrorcams with internal displays and got more than we expected as we put the Mercedes Active Brake Assist technology to the test.

  • Hi Daniel I am a professional driver and some of the coaches I drive have this collision avoidance system and its a pain sometimes it works other times it doesn't sometimes it will pre warn you with a audible sound and light before applying the breaks even if your in full control and paying attention I can remember going through some roadworks and the system thought I was going to hit a car even though I was quite a distance away and applied the breaks quite hard which made me jump the trouble with these systems is there not infallible Im not a fan of these and can never really trust them.

  • I think that system turns on after 15 mph to allow creeping in traffic, just like the cruise control and exhaust brake etc, There is a manual override switch that could also have been pressed. Either way that was set up to fail on loose gravel as it would have just locked them on

  • I have always found Merc trucks to sound agricultural personally..This video I think you did as an educational video .obviously you didn't want to damage the merc .but it proves what manufacturers say.The safety systems are there .but it is still the driver who is ultimately in control.They will assist the driver.but it doesn't exonerate him of his responsibilities .and not not a get out clause when there is an accident .ie the truck never stopped itself not my fault gov (said in a glaswegian accent lol)

  • The worst review I have ever seen what are u even saying pulling on a hill with no trailer and ur saying it pulls very well??? Bruh 😂 what is this... Ofc it will bc there is no F trailer And what about storage compartment I know for a fact that there are 100 different trucks that have access from inside and outside the cab and u didn't talk about the material quality of the truck and ur saying that the suspension of the truck its a little hard... dude u have no trailer again if there are any true drivers here on this channel where on earth did u guys finde a comfortable tractor unit with no trailer??? Never bc they have been made to be a little comfortable with a TRAILER and weight and ur seat suspension BTW u didn't find that to good bc they have like 10 configuration settings there. And the last thing is that you just tested a crash safety system on a open "field" now "listen" here that system works on the highway where are the guide lines on the road or inside the city's . when the mercedes made that system they were not thinking to protect the driver on a open field with 10 miles per hour but in the highway with 55miles per hour ofc its not going to work on the environment that u just tested bc it's not meant to work like that it's not programmed to do that so idk what kind of review was this get better
