MAN TGS in distribution transport

Travelling efficiently to get there safely

Reliability and efficiency in the transport industry can be guaranteed by preventing accidents. For this reason, MAN's top priority is the development of innovative safety systems.

Safety components of the MAN TGS*

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) automatically adapts the distance to the vehicle travelling in front according to the preset settings, thereby significantly reducing the risk of rear-end collisions.

Further information on the Adaptive Cruise Control

The system constantly monitors the dynamic status of the vehicle and then automatically calls on the engine management and brake system to intervene if the truck threatens to tip over or skid.

Compensatory braking with ESP when the towing vehicle is understeered


Compensatory braking with ESP when the towing vehicle is oversteered


Compensatory braking with ESP prevents articulated vehicles from overturning or veering off course (jackknifing)


Further information on the electronic stability program

Continuous Damping Control (CDC) calculates all forces required from the shock absorbers as a function of the vehicle load and the nature of the road. It does this for braking and accelerating, on bends or on gradients. The damping control can also be combined with the x-driver and guarantees maximum driving safety in vehicles with a high centre of gravity, such as swap body trucks.

The intelligent MAN BrakeMatic® system, together with the Electronic Braking System (EBS), anti-lock braking system (ABS) and powerful disc brakes provide superior braking characteristics.

The digital axle load display informs the driver of the current loading status of the vehicle. Here, pressure sensors record the bellow pressure on the air-sprung axles. The ECAS2 control unit converts the recorded pressure into axle weight (displayed with 10 percent accuracy) and indicates the pressure on each air-sprung axle on the main instrument display. The displayed values are continuously updated when loading and unloading.
