Truck Collision Warning Systems

TMC has a recommended practice for selecting an appropriate system


The Technology & Maintenance Council has three other recommended practices for spec’ing collision warning devices. They are:

  • RP 1220, Guidelines for Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control Safety Devices for Use on Heavy Trucks.
  • RP 1221, Guidelines for Lane Departure Warning Systems.
  • RP 1222, Guidelines for Heavy Duty Vehicle Stability Systems.

All of TMC’s RPs are contained in the newest edition of Recommended Practices Manual. The manual is available as a searchable CD-ROM, or two volume hardcover set (more than 2,700 pages).

The editions are available separately as single volumes.
