Volvo Dynamic Steering on Volvo FMX
Since day one Volvo’s Volvo Dynamic Steering has provided perfect stability in high speeds and total control at low speeds. The latest version of the system brings with it some very useful features for your everyday tough driving conditions. It’s now more customisable, and helps you maintain position on the road and can even step in when it detects a skid or slide is about to happen.
Dynamic Steering during your day
With Volvo Dynamic Steering the vibrations and kicks that feedback through the steering wheel while driving on uneven road surfaces are eliminated. Reversing and close-quarter manoeuvring is also made easier – steering wheel resistance is reduced by up to 70% at low speeds. In addition, the steering wheel automatically self-centres as soon as your grip on the wheel lightens.
At higher speeds, the truck confidently maintains its direction even on poor surfaces and in strong side-winds. The technology works with your truck’s hydraulic power steering, assisted by an electronically regulated electric motor that continuously adjusts steering inputs and provides added turning force if and when you need it.
Less time spent adjusting your settings
With Volvo’s Volvo Dynamic Steering you can quickly choose your steering settings via an onboard menu and start your journey. You can also engage Lane Keeping Assist, depending on where you’ll be driving, at the touch of a button. Stability Assist is always working in the background.
Welcome to your new cab
Volvo Dynamic Steering with External Steering lets you operate your truck via a remote control. This is ideal for where repeated short movements of the truck is combined with work outside the cab. Your productivity improves, not to mention how your working day becomes a lot more comfortable.
