Kenneth’s collision mitigation technology can also intervene if it detects an impending collision situation, offering greater peace of mind for drivers when out on the road. With these state-of-the-art safety features in place, Kenneth ensures all their customers can enjoy reliable support during their travels.
What Is Adaptive Cruise Control?
Adaptive cruise control is a highly advanced safety and driver assistance technology that utilizes radar to maintain a predetermined distance from vehicles ahead. This system functions with the standard cruise control feature, automatically monitoring the speed of nearby cars in order to adjust one’s own vehicle’s speed if necessary. The adaptive cruise control can be programmed for about three seconds until it returns back to its preset cruising speed when no longer needed.
The use of this system helps drivers remain consistent with their speeds even in fluctuating traffic conditions while also improving fuel economy by minimizing acceleration, deceleration and unnecessary disengagement of cruise control. In addition, it decreases potential hazards as drivers are made aware of any potential obstructions on the road ahead through timely brake application and or other actionable commands given off by the car itself.
Collision Mitigation Features
Collision mitigation is an essential safety feature of adaptive cruise control, helping to protect drivers from the potential dangers posed by distractions or other factors beyond their control on the road. By monitoring for situations that could lead to a possible accident, it gives both visual and auditory warnings so the driver can take appropriate action in time. In case the driver fails to react quickly enough, automatic braking systems will kick in automatically as a precautionary measure against any potential impact severity. This state-of-the-art technology offers great peace of mind while driving and ensures maximum safety for all users on the road.
How To Disable Collision Mitigation System On Kenworth T680
The Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) can be quickly and easily turned off with a few simple steps. Located on the left side of the steering wheel, press and hold the CMBS OFF button for 2 seconds. When done correctly, a beep will sound and an accompanying message will appear in the MID informing you that Collision Mitigation Braking System is now off. To reactivate CMBS again, simply press and hold this same button once more until you hear a second audible confirmation tone.
By following these instructions carefully, drivers can easily turn their CMBS system on/off as needed to ensure they are driving safely at all times while enjoying improved overall control over their vehicle’s braking capabilities.
Driver assistance technology has seen a significant boost in recent years, making roads much safer than before. Systems like adaptive cruise control have been instrumental in achieving this goal, as the collision detection capabilities they possess provide an added layer of security for motorists.
In addition to this, features such as blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning systems can be found installed on many vehicles today; these are just some of the reasons why drivers should become better educated about safe driving practices and strive towards becoming more responsible road users. With all these resources at our disposal, it is clear that there are numerous benefits that result from driver assistance technologies which ultimately make our roads a significantly safer place to drive.
