Truck Technology

Safety, it’s in Mercedes-Benz truck’s DNA

Reaching the destination safely – with the support of assistance and safety systems which actively ease the burden on the driver, help protect the vehicle and its cargo and so contribute to greater cost-effectiveness. Mercedes-Benz truck technology is designed to increase efficiency and safety whilst reducing costs for your business. Below are just a handful of innovations you can find in a Mercedes-Benz truck.

Active Brake Assist 4

The fourth generation of the system assists the driver1 by carrying out a full brake application in response to stationary and moving objects and partial braking in response to pedestrians in motion; in this way, it can reduce the severity of accidents or even prevent them completely.
1 Under optimal conditions and within system limits.

Attention Assist.

Warning of increasing tiredness. The optionally available Attention Assist* system can additionally increase the level of road safety. Based on specific factors such as steering behaviour, it is able to detect increasing fatigue levels and lapses in concentration on the part of the driver. It also provides visual and audible warnings and recommends taking a break.

Proximity Control Assist

If the standstill time in stop-start traffic is less than two seconds, the vehicle starts moving again without the need to operate the accelerator pedal. The driver retains control over the vehicle at all times. Proximity Control Assist* does not detect stationary obstacles. If vehicles suddenly appear, Proximity Control Assist can intervene with predefined levels of deceleration.
* Optional extra, only in conjunction with Active Brake Assist 3 or Active Brake Assist 4.

Lane Keeping Assist

On the right track. This system is available on request and is able to detect lane markings. It is always alert and can warn the driver if it recognises that the vehicle is in danger of leaving its lane unintentionally. If this happens, an acoustic warning sounds over the radio’s loudspeakers. The camera mounted behind the windscreen continuously sends images of the road markings to its powerful computer, which monitors the lateral distance between the vehicle and the road markings, raising the alarm if the worst should come to the worst.

Sensed fifth-wheel coupling

The sensor-controlled fifth-wheel coupling* lets the driver know whether the coupling is locked or unlocked in the instrument cluster. This enhances safety and avoids repair costs.
* Optional equipment.

Multi-function key

It offers all the functions of an extended central locking system and allows the tyre pressure and lighting checks to be carried out. It also serves as a remote control for features such as the radio and the auxiliary heating.
