Adaptive Cruise Control ACC Stop & Go*
The ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) automatically regulates the speed of the truck and the distance to the traffic ahead. Extra assistance is now provided in traffic jams and slow-moving traffic with the new Stop & Go function. This significantly relieves the pressure on the driver and increases traffic safety.
Preventing rear-end collisions
Particularly in dense traffic and on well-maintained country lanes, drivers frequently misjudge their own speed, as well as the distance to the vehicle in front. The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) brakes automatically when required and maintains a constant safety distance. This helps to avoid emergency braking situations. which often result in rear-end collisions. The new stop-and-go function now also takes the pressure off the driver with automatic stopping and starting in urban traffic and in traffic jams.
Radar and camera – two sensor systems for maximum reliability
The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) works using two independent sensor systems – radar and camera. The radar sensor detects vehicles ahead and calculates their speed, distance and position in relation to your truck. The camera in the windscreen has an independent object-recognition system and also recognises the road markings. This means the vehicle ahead can be detected with high levels of precision and reliability even in complex road layouts, adverse weather conditions or darkness.
Maximum user convenience
The multi-function steering wheel allows the driver to set their desired speed with ease. This is then maintained without the need to press the accelerator pedal. The driver can also set the desired safety distance to the vehicle ahead, with four different settings available. On clear roads, the vehicle accelerates to the desired speed set. If the ACC detects slower traffic ahead, it automatically adjusts the speed and distance.
