Volvo Trucks Traffic Safety
The Driver Alert Support system identifies and warns tired drivers. A camera on the windscreen registers the driver’s normal position on the road and then alerts him/her in the event of a deviation in driving behaviour.

Since 1927, traffic safety has always been one of Volvo Trucks' core values and the company is currently well to the fore when it comes to safety development. Tiredness alerts, lane change assistance and help maintaining distances make driving safer. At the same time, the driver must not be understimulated.

No fewer than 90% of the truck accidents that lead to truck drivers being killed or suffering severe physical injuries are caused by the human factor. In these situations, Volvo Trucks' safety systems can make a difference by warning the driver in time if he/she is starting to show signs that he/she is losing control. This may be due to tiredness or perhaps the driver is focusing his/her eyes or concentration on something other than the road, such as a phone or GPS. In such a situation, Volvo Trucks' active safety systems such as ACC, LKS, LCS, EBS, ESP, and DAS will warn the driver so that he/she will start focusing on the road once again.
