UD Trucks activity safety components are designed to prevent accidents happening, keeping both the driver and other road users safe.
This system uses millimeter-wave radar and a camera to monitor the area in front of the truck. If it detects a potential collision it sounds an alarm, displays a warning lamp and a warning message. If the truck continues to close on the vehicle ahead, the system applies the brakes automatically to slow the truck and prevent the collision.
NOTE: The Traffic Eye Brake System provides assistance for safe driving, but does not guarantee that all collisions will be avoided. It might not be possible to use this system on some roads, and in some weather conditions. Please take care to drive safely without total reliance on this system.
If an accident occurs the New Quon has been designed with a number of elements to minimise damage.
The New Quon has been designed with a number of features which contribute to reducing fatigue while driving, supporting safe driving. These include:
Disc brakes with high heat dissipation and superior fade resistance provide reliable braking performance even on long descents. As they are less susceptible to water penetration, they also provide stable braking performance even in adverse conditions. They respond quickly and smoothly to the brake pedal and reduce the impact of braking, to prevent damage to your valuable cargo.
This system uses dual monitoring with a millimetre-wave radar and camera to warn the driver of a potential collision with the vehicle in front. If the chance of a collision increases, it applies the brakes automatically to reduce damage.
UD EEB (UD Extra Engine Braking)
The UD EEB function on the GH11 engine maintains a high engine rpm to ensure maximum auxiliary braking performance.
Safe Brake Blending
Brake blending provides superior braking efficiency and optimal balance between the main brakes and auxiliary brakes, simply by pressing the brake pedal.
You can only start the engine with the dedicated key, helping to reduce the risk of vehicle theft. The immobiliser is equipped as standard on all models.
Our drivers who drive our current Quons have always praised it: “Driving is comfortable, stress and fatigue don’t accumulate and you can concentrate on safe driving.” In the new model, ESCOT-Ⅵ‘s gear changes have become even smoother. I think that the reputation of this new Quon among our drivers will be even better. Although I could not experience Traffic Eye Brake and driver fatigue alert on this test, I highly appreciate the enhancement of such safety features.
