The A to Z of Mercedes-Benz Trucks safety

Mercedes-Benz Trucks gives an essential A-Z guide to its approach to safety

Entirely avoiding accidents or, at the very least, reducing the severity of their consequences is a top priority for Mercedes-Benz Trucks. That is why new and effective safety and assistance systems are continually being developed – and why existing systems are regularly optimised. In addition to the latest innovation in assistance systems such as Active Brake Assist 5, Active Drive Assist 2, etc, there are many more functions and initiatives which contribute to vehicle and road safety.

Although not an exhaustive list, here we present the A to Z of Mercedes-Benz Trucks Safety. Which ones do you recognise?

Attention Assist
Increases driving safety and helps to avoid accidents by warning the driver if fatigue or lack of attention are detected.

Active Brake Assist 5
The fifth generation of the system assists the driver in under ideal conditions. And within the system’s capabilities, it can apply maximum full-stop braking when approaching stationary and moving objects by applying a partial or maximum full-stop braking for moving pedestrians*, thus mitigating and even preventing accidents entirely.

*Pedestrian detection remains active in a speed range of up to 50 km/h at most.

Comfort Telephony
Enables the driver to talk via the phone without taking the hands off the steering wheel.

Active Drive Assist
First semi-autonomous driving system in a series produced truck. Supports the driver in lateral and longitudinal direction.

Actros L, ADA2, 2021

GenuineParts
Provides the best possible quality for the Mercedes-Benz Trucks.

Hold Function and Hill Holder
Prevents the truck from rolling back when accelerating at an incline.

Inline six-cylinder engine
The new Actros is equipped with a fuel efficient inline six-cylinder engine ensuring best possible fuel consumption. The Actros is the best combination for a fuel efficient and safe truck.

Telescopic Jack
Optional two-piston telescopic jack with high lifting power in two stages. Easy handling thanks to low overall height.

Kraftstofffilter
Additional fuel pre-filter that can help prevent particles falling into the fuel tank.

Lane Keeping Assist
Warns the driver on time before drifting out of the lane.

MirrorCam
Provides best possible view to the driver by adjusting the angle of the camera lens so that the end of the trailer is always visible. By removing the outside mirror, the view next to the A-pillar is much better when approaching conjunctions and roundabouts, thus improving safety. Reduction of fuel consumption is also achieved due to aerodynamic design.

Nachlaufachse
Also known as ‘Trailing Axle’ in English – It provides high driving stability and safety for high payloads, in addition to enabling maximum payload.

Frame Overhang
Individual selection of the frame overhang allows the vehicle to be adapted to the subsequent body length, contributing to improved vehicle quality.

Predictive Powertrain Control
Supports the driver by using topographic maps to optimise the fuel consumption. The driver can fully concentrate on the driving tasks and can be sure that the truck optimises fuel consumption itself.

Quality
Every vehicle is developed, built and tested with daily use in mind. Endurance testing of more than 6 million kilometres in the Middle East under extreme conditions was done on the Actros prior to the launch here.

Roll Control Assist
Is an electronically controlled suspension and damping system with adaptive damper adjustment for partially and fully air-sprung vehicles. Supports the truck to drive in stable conditions.

Actros 5, ADA, ASGA, ABA

Sideguard Assist
Assistance system that controls the environment next to the truck. Warns the driver if there is a pedestrian or bicycle next to the truck when turning. Prevents dangerous accidents.

Touch Control Buttons
Offers the driver the possibility to control all functions without taking the hands off the steering wheel.

Underide Guard (Rear
Enhanced passive safety to protect other road users since it is more difficult to drive under the vehicle rear end.

Vehicle Pre-delivery inspection
During the PDI, the workshop ensures all systems of the vehicles are in perfect condition thereby guaranteeting the overall safety of the vehicle.

Wireless Charging
Ensures that the battery of the mobile phone is always charged without a connecting cable which can prevent the driver or co-driver from tripping over.

X-Pulse
The X-Pulse fuel-injection system reduces the fuel quantity required for combustion to a minimum and thus reduce the burden on environment – safety for environment.

125 Years
Mercedes-Benz Trucks celebrates 125 years of anniversary this year. The products and safety assistance systems are the result of 125 years of innovation and passion.

Mercedes-Benz Safety Truck

Zero accident vision
Mercedes-Benz Truck’s vision is to reduce accidents to a minimum – this is called the so called Zero Accident vision.
