Now we're protecting people outside the cab too
Volvo Active Safety systems - delivering tomorrow's trucks.
With night mode, drivers have the option of instantly switching off all unnecessary dashboard backlights with the press of a button. The result is less glare in the driver’s field of vision, and fewer distractions from reflections in the windscreen and side mirrors. It is best suited to long-haul drivers when driving at night, and when reversing and manoeuvring in tough weather conditions or complex environments, such as when connecting or disconnecting trailers.
Our active safety initiatives are designed to avoid the errors that cause around 90% of all traffic accidents. So we help our drivers see more. We keep them comfortable and focused. And we equip our trucks with systems and technology that take safety to the next level.
Unfortunately, accidents do happen – so our passive safety initiatives focus on minimising the risk of injury when they do. As a result, we concentrate on building trucks that give the driver, passengers and other road users as much protection as possible.
