MAN TGX in long-haul transport

How you can drive more efficiently with safety on board

The MAN TGX's motto is "Safety first". Its main focus is maximum protection, both for the driver and for other road users. Accidents always cost money. Damage to the vehicle and freight, as well as repairs and downtimes, can be very expensive.

The innovative safety systems of the MAN TGX reduce the risk of accidents and thereby increase efficiency on the road. Increased safety is always a safe bet.

Safety components of the MAN TGX*

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 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.

The lane guard system II (LGS) is a camera-based driver assistance system, which notifies drivers when the vehicle inadvertently crosses the lane marking, prompting them to correct the road position.

The newly-developed MAN EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) system sets standards for road traffic safety. The fusion of radar sensors and camera allows for an even more accurate interpretation of dangerous situations and thus increases traffic safety. In case of an emergency braking, the ESS (Emergency Stopping Signal) emergency brake signal is also activated besides the brake lights – the hazard warning flasher operates at an increased flashing frequency to notify traffic participants of the emergency, thus reducing the risk of a rear-end collision.

The emergency brake assist system with sensor fusion comes standard on all MAN vehicles subject to mandatory specification requirements for new vehicles effective from November 2015. The technology already complies with stricter EU requirements applicable from November 2018.

The CDC (Continuous Damping Control) calculates the forces required from the shock absorbers and adapts these to the vehicle load (braking, accelerating, cornering and driving uphill) and to the nature of the road. The damping control improves driving safety, particularly in vehicles with a high centre of gravity, such as swap body trucks.

If the tyre pressure is just two bar below the optimum setting, it can increase fuel consumption by 0.2 litres per 100 km. The tyre pressure monitoring system checks for the correct air pressure, and all tyres can be monitored by referring to the central instrument cluster in the cockpit. 99 percent of all tyre failures can be avoided with the right tyre pressure.
