Ramp Distance Control

The electronic Ultrasonic reversing aid (Ramp Approach System) has also been improved in order to prevent ramp damage. The system is now capable of indicating the precise distance in the cab.

Ramp Distance Control:
New ramp approach aid.

 

The ramp approach aid provides the driver with information about the remaining manoeuvring room behind the vehicle when reversing via visual and acoustic signals. The frequency of the signal increases as the distance to the ramp decreases. The ultrasonic sensors on the system are recessed into the steel corner bumpers and protected against damage.
