So that the driver can maintain oversight in a sea of signs: The traffic sign detection system detects the signage on the road in front of the truck thanks to the new video camera on the windscreen and reliably shows the currently applicable requirements on the instrumentation display. If, for example, the speed limit is exceeded, the system reminds the driver of the current regulations using visual and acoustic warnings. The tolerance of the warning signal can be individually adjusted in the vehicle menu, for infringements from 0 to 3 km/h.
In vehicles with a navigation system, the system can even display country- and vehicle-specific regulations such as bans on overtaking and entry as well as weight restrictions. This not only lightens the burden on the driver but also helps to increase safety and assists in preventing accidents.
The maximum permissible speed and other restrictions are shown to the driver in the instrumentation display. In the event of speeding and conflicts with restrictions, the corresponding indicators flash.
This is accompanied by an acoustic signal for speeding and restriction violations , which sounds once over the loudspeakers at the driver’s workplace.
