Volvo truck drivers to benefit from new in-cab features

Volvo Trucks has revealed a number of in-cab truck upgrades aimed at enhancing the safety, navigation and overall driver experience.

According to Volvo, the new system allows for easier and more efficient assignment handling. The truck navigation system accepts a range of inputs for getting directions including addresses, coordinates or simply touching the onscreen map.

“The new system for services and infotainment allows drivers to really personalise their workspace,” says Anders Edenholm, Chief Project Manager, Volvo Trucks.

“For example they can listen to their favourite local radio station no matter where they are, and they can have hands-free access to both their personal phone as well as work phone. Overall this helps create an enhanced and safer driving experience. It increases the feeling of home when drivers are away for long periods of time.

“When designing the new system for services and infotainment, we've made it as easy as possible for drivers to navigate and complete their assignments.

“Because Dynafleet OnBoard and Navigation are integrated, drivers can receive messages with GPS coordinates and in just with a few seconds start navigating to their next assignment. More time with hands on the steering wheel and eyes focused on the road means a safer and more productive driver.”

The features of the new system include access to streaming media services such as Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn, as well as DAB and DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting). There is also a push-to-talk button for voice control on the steering wheel.

Volvo Truck said the new integrated system for services and infotainment will be available on new Volvo FH, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX models.
