SAFETY FEA­TURES

Owner Driver - - Truck Technology -

MACK ROAD STA­BIL­ITY AD­VAN­TAGE (RSA): This full-sta­bil­ity sys­tem helps drivers mit­i­gate rollovers and loss-of-con­trol sit­u­a­tions on wet and dry roads. The sys­tem helps to mit­i­gate ve­hi­cle jack-knifes, slides, skids and loss-of-con­trol through ad­vanced mon­i­tor­ing of a va­ri­ety of ve­hi­cle pa­ram­e­ters and au­to­matic or se­lec­tive ap­pli­ca­tion of ve­hi­cle brakes.

BENDIX BLIND SPOT­TER: Re­duces the drivers’ blind spot and in­creases the field of view by up to 120 de­grees. This as­sists with safer lane changes, drift­ing in lanes and re­duces side­swipe ac­ci­dents.

ALERT PRI­ORI­TI­SA­TION: Pro­vides the most crit­i­cal alert first (typ­i­cally the im­pact alert) lead­ing into a col­li­sion mit­i­ga­tion brak­ing event, help­ing min­imise driver dis­trac­tion from mul­ti­ple alerts oc­cur­ring si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

LANE DE­PAR­TURE WARN­ING: The sys­tem alerts your driver to un­in­tended

lane changes.

FOL­LOW­ING DIS­TANCE ALERT: Three lev­els of au­di­ble and vis­ual alerts let the driver know when they are get­ting too close to the for­ward ve­hi­cle.

IM­PACT ALERT: Au­di­ble and vis­ual alerts warn the driver that a col­li­sion with the for­ward ve­hi­cle is likely and that they should ad­dress the sit­u­a­tion im­me­di­ately.

STA­TION­ARY OB­JECT ALERT: When a large metal­lic ob­ject may be block­ing the lane of travel, the driver re­ceives an au­di­ble and vis­ual alert up to three sec­onds be­fore po­ten­tial im­pact.

STA­TION­ARY VE­HI­CLE BRAK­ING: Alerts the driver up to 3.5 sec­onds be­fore po­ten­tial im­pact and ap­plies ve­hi­cle brakes if a large, sta­tion­ary, in-lane ob­ject is iden­ti­fied.

EN­HANCED COL­LI­SION MIT­I­GA­TION: Au­to­mat­i­cally ap­plies the foun­da­tion brakes to mit­i­gate, or po­ten­tially pre­vent, a pos­si­ble col­li­sion with a for­ward mov­ing ve­hi­cle.

ADAP­TIVE CRUISE CON­TROL WITH BRAK­ING: When a for­ward ve­hi­cle is de­tected and ei­ther the dis­tance to the ve­hi­cle or a fol­low­ing dis­tance alert is shown, the sys­tem in­ter­venes by re­duc­ing throt­tle, en­gag­ing en­gine re­tarder and ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion brakes to help the driver main­tain a set fol­low­ing dis­tance be­hind a for­ward ve­hi­cle.
