Acceleration Testing of 2016 Freightliner Cascadia with Automated Manual Transmission in Auto Mode 2017-01-1426

The time/distance relationship for a heavy truck accelerating from a stop is often needed to accurately assess the events leading up to a collision. Several series of tests were conducted to document the low speed acceleration performance of a 2016 Freightliner Cascadia truck tractor equipped with a 12-speed automated manual transmission in Auto Mode. Unlike tests in previous papers, the driver never manually shifted gears. These tests included three trailer load configurations and two different acceleration rates. Data were gathered with both a VBOX and with the Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link (DDDL) software.
