Eaton Corp. has signed a long-term agreement with TRW business unit Autocruise S.A. to use its long-range radar sensors in Eaton’s Vorad onboard collision-warning systems.
Under the agreement, Eaton will purchase Autocruise 76/77 GHz sensors. The units will be incorporated into Eaton’s collision warning and adaptive cruise control system (ACC) for heavy-duty trucks.
“This agreement will allow our OEM customers to meet global radar frequency standards and thereby broaden their international marketing opportunity,” said Roderick Jones, business unit manager for Eaton’s Vorad business. “Eaton will continue to develop and market Vorad collision warning and ACC systems as well as complementary offerings.”
