Tractor Semitrailer Unit for the Future 856100

For the truck maker, safety is a major component of the general specifications. However important this component may be, it is only one item among others:
  • The goods transport vehicle for 2000 induces a break in all fields of performance.
  • Particularly for safety, we have deepened major locking areas as the rollover phenomena.
  • We have elaborated, with other related industries, in a complete program named V.I.R.A.G.E.S., an experimental tractor-semitrailer unit, providing substantial improvements in all fields.
  • We show here specific elements related to safety in all its aspects but under constraints of other heavy components of the general specifications.
It must be seen as the global approach and response of the makers.
