Mack Trucks Inc. has announced that its will make the Road Stability Advantage by Bendix (Mack RSA) system standard on its highway vehicles.
Mack RSA is a full electronic stability system that uses existing ABS wheel speed sensors and steering yaw and lateral acceleration inputs to deactivate the throttle and selectively apply brakes in sharp curves and during sudden lane changes or obstacle avoidance maneuvers. The result would be a reduction in accidents and better customer profitability, Mack said.
Mack began offering the system as an option on its highway tractors late last year.
“The decision to make Mack RSA standard now was not a difficult one,” said Tom Kelly, vp-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.”
