Are you looking for perfect stability and control at all speeds, combined with reduced strain on your muscles? Or do you want assistance to avoid skidding and unintentional lane changes? Take a closer look at Volvo Dynamic Steering. It brings you all that, plus your own personal settings. And it even offers remote steering control.
Volvo Dynamic Steering combines conventional hydraulic power steering with an electric motor that’s fitted to the steering gear. By processing input from multiple sensors, the system works out where the truck is going and the driver’s intention. The motor is controlled 2,000 times every second to correct unintentional steering movements and provide extra steering torque when needed.
At high speeds, Volvo Dynamic Steering keeps you stable and on course. And during slow and careful manoeuvring, it provides the steering force for you, no matter the load. It even takes the strain out of reversing a fully loaded truck and returns the wheel to neutral automatically. You can reverse more than a 100 metres without drifting off course.
The course corrections you make after braking on an uneven surface? Gone. Kicks from potholes, road ruts and markings? Almost undetectable. Volvo Dynamic Steering even balances the impact of strong side winds. Loosen your grip on the steering wheel – the truck will only change direction when you want it to.
