LEHIGH VALLEY, Penn. — Mack highway trucks will soon come standard with Bendix’s roll stability system, the company has announced.
Mack Road Stability Advantage (RSA), designed by Bendix, is a full electronic stability system designed to reduce the risk of rollovers. It uses ABS wheel speed sensors along with steering, yaw and lateral acceleration inputs to detect a potential rollover and when necessary the system intervenes to reduce the risk of an incident.
The system can deactivate the throttle and apply the brakes when required. It has been offered as an option on Mack highway tractors since late last year, the company says.
“The decision to make Mack RSA standard now was not a difficult one,” said Tom Kelly, Mack vice-president, marketing. “The system has demonstrated that it can do what it’s intended to do. And it has been very well-received by our customers.”
