Adaptive cruise control that maintains a steady distance
Adaptive Cruise Control ACC option is an active cruise control system that makes it easy to blend into the traffic flow and keep a constant safe distance behind the vehicle in front. The radar-based ACC maintains a constant distance between the vehicle in front through automatic operation of the accelerator and brakes. The radar sensor is entirely new and has improved detection capabilities.
Electronically controlled fast brakes
Volvo's EBS electronically controlled disc brakes are characterised by high braking effect combined with heat-resistant disc installation. Electronic control provides an extremely fast response and short braking distance. The EBS brake system is enhanced with the standard Medium package that includes the "Hill Hold" function and the optional High package that features an electronic stability program ESP.
Brake stabilisation forgives the driver
The Electronic Stability Program is included in EBS High for all disc braked tractors and is now available on 6×2 tag axle air suspended rigids. The system permits more uniform braking with the possibility of redistribution of braking forces between the axles and wheels when required in severe conditions, it also provides roll over protection.
