Automatically regulates speed and maintains a specified distance from the vehicle ahead – Telligent® proximity control

Telligent® proximity control

Keeping your distance is perhaps one of the most important rules of safety, yet one that is becoming harder and harder to obey. That’s why Telligent® proximity control is available as an option in conjunction with a retarder. This driver assistance system permits a more relaxed style of driving by scanning the traffic situation up to 150 metres in front of the vehicle, monitoring the distance to the vehicle in front and the speed at which it is travelling and analysing any changes. As a result, the speed of the Actros and its distance from the vehicle in front are automatically adjusted to the changing traffic situation.
