Here Volvo Dynamic Steering works together with the truck’s Electronic Stability Control system. Sensors in the frame continuously monitor the truck’s rotational speed (yaw) and when the slightest skidding tendency is detected, the system is activated and provides light steering wheel assistance to help the driver steer in the opposite direction, stabilising the vehicle.
Skidding is not something you ever want to experience as a truck driver out on the road. This system reacts in milliseconds to a counter steer.
