Scania City Safe Window enables detection of nearby pedestrians and cyclists
12 DECEMBER 2017
With the Scania City Safe Window, drivers have a better opportunity to detect nearby pedestrians and cyclists. The window on the passenger side door is available for all P- and L-series cabs, which are most common in urban applications.
Anything that can contribute to a greater overview and sense of being in control in relation to the surrounding environment is highly advantageous and can be decisive in crowded urban areas.
“The door window significantly raises safety and helps reduce what is a commonly stressful situation among drivers in cities,” says Jorge Guttierrez, Product Manager, Scania Trucks. Adding cameras and sensors in no way invalidates the need to actually see and establish visual contact with surrounding pedestrians and cyclists.
Especially in narrow and crowded urban areas, the City Safe Window helps reduce what is a commonly stressful situation for drivers.
