Tata Motors Limited showcased the new safety technology -
Electronic Stability Control (ESCsmart) for the range of Prima and Signa trucks
at an event in Chennai. In addition to this, it also offers Automatic Traction
Control (ATC) and Hill Start Aid (HSA) safety technology for the range of
trucks and buses which will go a long way in helping prevent truck and bus
accidents by increasing vehicle stability and safety.
Developed in partnership
with Wabco India, these technologies provide complete value to customers by
providing vehicle stability, reducing accident risk, repair cost and improving
vehicle uptime, thus enhancing road safety and efficiency of commercial
ESC shall be available on Prima – Tractors 4025.S, 4925
and Trucks 2523T, 3123T and 3723T and Signa LPS 4018 and LPS 4923 as well as
LPT platforms of 25T, 31T and 37T.
Stability Control (ESC) functionality is
added on Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) which was introduced as a part of
regulatory compliance as per Central Motors Vehicle Rules promulgated by the
government for all vehicles more than 12 ton GVW.
While ABS contributes significantly to the safety of
vehicles under different road conditions, ESC takes the safety to the next
level by providing safety under demanding conditions of various handling
maneuvers, thereby preventing or minimising the probability of accidents.
Functionally ESC predicts forthcoming instability and
automatically intervenes by applying brakes to avoid rollover, skidding and
jack-knifing. It measures vehicle’s lateral acceleration, roll about its
vertical axis through sensors, and applies brakes on selective wheels to
control instability. Benefits to the customers shall be in terms of preventing
jack-knifing in tractor-trailer, improve directional stability during dynamic
maneuvers, prevent roll over during turning at high speed.
