• Effective driver assistance systems

    The European research project euroFOT, in which companies and institutions from ten different countries took part, established that MAN driver assistance systems improve road safety and reduce fuel consumption. Trucks using Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) achieved average fuel savings of almost 2% over the period of the trial, despite also recording a higher average speed. At the same time, critical events such as hard braking or sudden evasive maneuvers were reduced by more than one third.
