The Safety Pack: What

Active Break Assist 4

As any fleet manager knows, conditions on the road can be challenging for truck drivers, which is why Active Break Assist 4 is so important. The incredible stopping power of this feature was demonstrated at RoadEfficiency LIVE, in November last year,with the display in the high-speed bowl at the venueimpressive to say the least.

This high-tech system employs multi-mode radar designed to detect and monitor objects in front of the vehicle it is installed in. Whateverapplies gradual breaking,before employing the break in full. The idea is that a collision is prevented or,at the very least, the effects of the resultant crash are minimised; a major plus for haulage companies conscious of their safety record.

Active Break Assist 4 is also able to recognise pedestrians that may move into the truck

Proximity Control Assist

This neat little feature works alongside the cruise control on a truck,in order tomanage speed and keep the vehicle a pre-set distance from the one ahead. The main idea is that there is less risk of running into the back of anyone, but it also helps make driving in very heavy traffic far less stressful.

For directors and managersof haulage companies, investing in this pack makes perfect sense. Not only does it relieve the stress of meeting their Duty of Care obligations, itoyees, be proactive and think about this very worthwhile investment.
