SAFETY FIRST.

In commercial transport operations, nothing is more critical to risk management than vehicle safety. When your cargo is people, safety demands an even greater prominence in that risk assessment.

At FUSO, we lead this segment in the provision of Advanced Safety Features on our trucks and buses. A member of the Daimler family, we have access to rapidly evolving safety technologies and are proud to claim that the majority of the vehicles we sell have these safety systems fitted as standard.

Safety is further enhanced by features such as driver and passenger airbags, four-wheel disc brakes, exhaust brake, dehumidifying climate control, LED headlamps and ergonomic cockpits with greater visibility, which create a comfortable driving environment reducing stress and fatigue.

Active Emergency Braking

AEBS helps to avoid or mitigate collisions with pedestrians and other vehicles by using a radar to monitor the road ahead. The radar triggers visual and audio warnings followed by automatic braking activation, depending on proximity to the obstacle ahead. Drivers can override AEBS by pressing the accelerator.

Lane Departure Warning

LDWS operates at speeds over 60km/h to reduce the risk of lane departure accidents caused by distraction or fatigue. A camera behind the windscreen detects lane markings and triggers visual and audio alerts if the vehicle crosses without the indicator deployed.

Electronic Stability Control

ESC employs a steering sensor and yaw rate sensor to detect loss of control. This information is relayed to a hydraulic unit, which applies appropriate brake force to individual wheels to aid steering control, improve stability and prevent rollover.
