Moving into a turning lane, overtaking or manoeuvring around obstacles: A challenge for truck drivers, especially in heavy traffic. Thanks to the MAN lane change collision avoidance assist, these manoeuvres can be carried out more safely. The driver is warned in good time if a road user is in a lateral area of the vehicle monitored by the radar sensors. If a collision with other road users is imminent despite the warning, a corrective, active steering torque provides support and helps the driver to avoid serious accidents.
Good to know: The size of the warning area varies from 0 m to 8 m in front of and up to 80 m behind the vehicle (measured from the front of the vehicle). Furthermore, the warning area depends on the vehicle length and the relative speed between your own vehicle and the respective vehicle in the adjacent lane.
If there is a moving object in the warning area on the co-driverʼs side, warning corners (with MAN OptiView) or a single LED warning light in the A-pillar are activated.
If, despite the threat of a collision on the driver’s or co-driver’s side, a lane change is initiated by activating the indicator or steering movement, a continuous warning frame (with MAN OptiView) or three LED warning lights in the A-pillar light up.
If, despite the warning of an imminent collision, the steering movement is continued so that the vehicle leaves its lane, the assistant actively steers the vehicle back into its own lane. At the same time, the warning frame (with MAN OptiView) or the three LED warning lights in the A-pillar flash, additionally supported by an acoustic signal.
