Volvo safety boost

Volvo Trucks is including additional safety functions as standard on its FM and FH
ranges from March. If a customer chooses a truck with the eElectronically-controlled
brake system in base form, more functions will now included at no extra cost. Among
the additional features provided are ‘Hill Start Aid’, which prevents the truck from
rolling backward when starting on an uphill gradient, and ‘Wheel Brake Monitoring’
which alerts the driver if the brake force on any wheel suddenly drops.
