Safety and Standards

Assistance systems in commercial vehicles

The technical developments do not stand still. Permanently improved assistance systems are being developed to make the traffic and handling of trucks safer and more convenient.

Driver assistance systems support ecological and efficient driving

There are driver assistance systems with which every descent and incline can be performed simply and intelligently.

The Driveaway control system is an extension of the braking system that maintains the braking pressure when starting on a slope until the driver presses the accelerator pedal to prevent the vehicle from rolling away.

The topography-based adaptive cruise control (GPS and cloud) is an assistance system that uses stored map data and GPS position data to adapt the driving style to the circumstances in a way that is optimized for fuel consumption. With a central cloud, data is transferred to a database and made available to different users.

For an easier loading at the ramp

The interface between ramp and vehicle is a sensitive point when handling goods. Here trucks have to be guided correctly, securely docked and loaded and unloaded quickly to ensure effective overall logistics.

The rear area monitoring system automatically observes the rear area when reversing. If a static or moving object is detected with a remaining distance of 20 to 200 cm, the system warns to prevent a collision.

The Maneuvering assist system is a system that is still under development. With the maneuvering assistant, the entire truck (semi-trailer or long truck) can be controlled and moved from outside using a tablet. The direction of travel and positioning are determined on the tablet and the system then executes the steering movements so that the truck drives exactly in the desired direction.

Smooth goods transport

The Local Vehicle Network (LVN) is a system that is still under development. The local vehicle network should offer central access to all data on vehicle combinations (towing vehicle and trailer / semi-trailer). It is an extension of the existing communication standards for trailers. The trailer data (such as cooling temperature, door status, load securing, etc.) are transmitted to the towing vehicle via WLAN. Further automation is supported by the central accessibility of the data.

The DispoPilot is a logistics application to support planning. This application can be installed on any Android-based smartphone, tablet or the company's own tablet fleet board. Together with the navigation software, the DispoPilot enables efficient and connected order management. The system is constantly connected to the logistics center.
