Isuzu N Series intelligent truck

Tuesday, 04 August, 2015 | Supplied by: Isuzu Australia Limited

Isuzu has released the N Series ‘intelligent truck’ designed with a suite of safety features and engineering technology for the light-duty truck market.

The series includes onboard technology that gathers information from sensors to detect and help correct an unexpected loss of control. Data from the sensors is continually fed to an electronic hydraulic control unit (EHCU). This data informs automated engine torque and braking reactions to bring a hazardous driving scenario back under control.

The series also contains Isuzu Electronic Stability Control (IESC), an intuitive and pre-emptive safety measure which works by constantly monitoring speed, brake performance, steering angle, suspension geometry and rotation angle. As the vehicle speed increases, the amount of side slip at the front tyre increases and the turning radius becomes larger. When EHCU detects side slip of the front tyres, it then applies the brakes on the outer wheels and inner drive wheel, while also instructing the engine to reduce torque.

The EHCU is described by the company as ‘the brains’ behind IESC and also works to control other preventive safety aids in the range. These safety features include anti-lock braking, electronic brake force distribution system, anti-slip regulator systems and boost assist when fitted and Hill Start Assist.
