VBG Driver Assist is an interactive system that guides when connecting a trailer or center axel trailer, and warns of in the event of a jack-knife. A smart system for busy drivers who want an easier and precise connection, every time.
Driver Assist is part of the new VBG coupling program, where focus is on technology and innovation. Driver Assist can only work in combination with the new and intelligent VBG coupling. When installing Driver Assist, two so called DSM sensors (Drawbar Sensing Modules) are placed on the rear of the truck. A sensor is mounted on the right and left side of the coupling. Next, three reflectors are mounted on each side of the drawbar, and after a calibration, the system is activated and ready for use.
With the new program of intelligent couplings, a new digital era has been started, where the possibilities of technology will lead to new standards for operation, service, and maintenance.
