Hino has delivered on a promise to bring extra safety features to the 700 Series truck range with confirmation the heavy-duty Hino would now boast the ‘SmartSafe’ system.
The active safety package is now standard across its entire range of 700 Series trucks after now being added to FY 8×4 models (as seen above).
Hino SmartSafe includes:
- Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
- Pedestrian Detection (PD)
- Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
- Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
- Reverse Camera
There’s also a Driver Monitor system that constantly monitors the driver’s attention towards the road using key metrics such as driving posture, face orientation, and eyelid status via a camera integrated into the A-pillar.
Daniel Petrovski is the Department Manager of Product Strategy for Hino Australia, he’s told us these changes make the Hino 700 Series the safest Hino truck ever.
“We have already received excellent feedback on the 4×2, 6×2, and 6×4 700 Series models since their launch last year, and that positive customer response supports the inclusion of Hino SmartSafe as standard equipment on all new orders for the 700 Series FY 8×4 models,”
“The addition of Hino SmartSafe makes the FY 8×4 models an even more enticing choice for customers who require a load share steer axle equipped 8×4 truck.”
