Safety on board, a reliable companion
Iveco believes strongly in a future when transport is fully sustainable, and this doesn’t stop with its ecological vocation. Of vital importance is also road safety and Iveco offers the maximum in terms of safety with excellent vehicle handling under all loading conditions, as well as an improved quality of life on board. Daily was one of the first commercial vehicles to specify disc brakes all round as a safety measure.
Introduced for New Daily are new headlamp units incorporating day-time running lights (DRL) and new fog lights incorporated in the front bumper with a cornering function. With this feature, the relevant fog light is switched on automatically when cornering to illuminate the road in the direction the vehicle will take.
New Daily makes available the advanced vehicle stability control system known as ESP 9. This system builds on and enhances the features of the stability control system available with previous Daily models that comprised ABS (ant-lock brakes), EBD (electronic brake force distribution), ASR (traction control), MSR (engine speed management to control engine over-run braking), ESP (stability control), HBA (hydraulic brake assist to ensure emergency braking is as effective as possible), Hill Holder and LAC (load adaptive braking control). The new ESP 9 features include:
TSM Trailer Sway Mitigation - selectively applies the vehicle brakes in the event of detecting trailer sway.
HRB Hydraulic Rear Wheel Boost - increases rear axle brake force when front axle ABS activity is detected in order to reduce braking distance.
HFC Hydraulic Brake Fade Control - detects the reduced braking force associated with brake fade and automatically increases braking effort to compensate.
RMI & ROM Roll Movement Intervention & Roll Over Mitigation works by detecting critical lateral acceleration when cornering and reacts by modulating engine torque and by increasing braking pressure at the relevant wheels.
