MAN'S LIONS ARE ALWAYS ADVANCED WITH ITS NEW PREDICTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
MAN Trucks Recognizes Pedestrians and Cyclists, Provides Safe Driving Support to the Driver with its Superior Technology
MAN trucks make a difference with their new technological features. MAN's new "FrontDetection" safety system detects pedestrians and cyclists and neutralizes situations that can be dangerous for even the most vulnerable road users. With its traffic sign recognition, tire pressure gauge and electronic semi-trailer lashing assist systems, MAN saves drivers from long-term stressful jobs. Together with its axles, it provides fuel savings of up to 6 percent. In addition, with the MAN PowerMatic transmission, MAN TGL and TGMs start the first movement without wear, making gear changes more efficient.
New generation assistance systems that can detect pedestrians and cyclists make MAN trucks even safer, especially for vulnerable road users.
MAN GPS-assisted Cruise Control- cruise control provides even more economical driving with PredictiveDrive.
The new MAN PowerMatic automatic transmission with torque converter makes gear changes more efficient in MAN TGL and TGM and does not allow any wear.
One of the most important problems experienced by truck drivers while driving is the lack of sufficient visibility in blind spots. Especially when delivering in the city, maneuvering in the transport area or in uncertain transition situations or when entering roundabouts; pedestrians or cyclists can cross the hard-to-see area directly in front of the vehicle. The driver may not immediately notice the pedestrian or cyclist crossing this area.
MAN's new "FrontDetection" safety system detects whether pedestrians or cyclists are in the hard-to-see area directly in front of the vehicle, and warns the driver visually and audibly during departure situations and at speeds as low as 10 km/h. This innovation effectively makes such risky situations in city traffic safe for the most vulnerable road users. The new safety function is included in MAN's third generation Emergency Brake Assistant - EBA - warning and braking strategy. This system detects other road users who are not in the lane directly in front of the truck but could potentially cross from a speed as low as 10 km/h, warns the driver of a possible collision and automatically applies the emergency brake if necessary.
Along with new developments, MAN has also updated the MAN AttentionGuard attention warning system, which detects dangerous driving and warns the driver visually and audibly. Further developed compared to the previous version, MAN AttentionGuard continuously evaluates the driver's lane keeping stability and steering interventions. In addition, if the system detects a decrease in driver attention, it can warn the driver before violating the lane marking. Especially in low visibility situations and night driving, the distance warning system also contributes to safety on long journeys. If the driver falls below the legal minimum distance to the vehicle in front of him, the system immediately warns him. When the distance-controlled cruise control ACC, which independently maintains the correct distance, is not activated, the display of the actual distance to the vehicle ahead in meters also helps to re-determine and maintain the correct distance. Distance warning and ACC thus significantly reduce the risk of rear-end collisions as a preventative measure.
Quick central access to all these assistance functions developed by MAN is provided by a new button on the multifunction steering wheel or on the instrument panel, depending on the equipment. Thus, functions such as lane change and turn assistance, MAN long-distance traffic assistant CruiseAssist or pedestrian and cyclist detection FrontDetection can be activated easily without menu deviations. Another contribution of MAN to preventive road safety stands out as the breathalyzer connection front, which measures the alcohol content in the breath and allows the engine to be started only if the driver is able to drive. Thus, an important contribution is made to the prevention of tragic alcohol-related accidents.
More Support for Drivers Who Drive Every Day
In addition to the numerous active warning or preventive safety systems, MAN Trucks also offers new systems that significantly relieve the driver in their daily work and thus indirectly contribute more to safety. One of them is the new traffic sign recognition system. Real-time display of the traffic and speed regulations in effect in the driving situation makes the driver's job easier and helps him to focus completely on the driving task and the traffic without worrying about missing the traffic restrictions that he or she must comply with.
Another innovation of MAN that makes driving easier is that trailers and semi-trailers equipped with sensors can display tire pressure and temperature data. Correct tire pressure; In addition to reducing consumption and wear, it also reduces the risk of possible tire bursts and fire due to overheating.
MAN also makes reversing safer with its innovations. This innovation is supported by an innovative technology called Reversing Motion System, which is offered as a standard option and via the rear-mounted camera. When reverse gear is engaged, the rear view is automatically displayed on the entertainment system screen, and the system can also be activated manually at any time with a button on the instrument panel. That way, the driver can always keep an eye on what's happening behind his vehicle.
Another important system developed for driver safety and comfort is the fifth wheel coupling equipped with sensors. A semi-trailer sensor on the fifth wheel plate, a king pin sensor on the coupling lock, and a locking sensor on the access guard monitor the coupling process and transmit information directly to the driver via the digital display. So the driver can see directly from the cockpit that the fifth wheel is locked correctly. This provides an important comfort and confidence, especially in night conditions.
MAN also simplifies the coupling of the semi-trailer to the tractor with the new air suspension control it has developed. This innovation is provided by the ergonomic, wired remote control positioned next to the driver's seat. This innovation, which makes it possible to control the trailer's air suspension, also allows the air suspension functions to be used via the multi-function steering wheel and the built-in menu. This reduces the lifting and lowering times of the trailer by up to 50 percent, providing significant time savings.
Another innovation of MAN is the new voice recognition system with the driver card. This innovation, which enables its drivers to easily change their settings according to different languages, allows 28 more languages to be downloaded free of charge with MAN Now on the RIO platform, in addition to the two standard languages, German and English. Besides the features such as Language Recognition, Language Pack, Idle Shutdown (the system that reduces unnecessary idling for long periods), driving efficiency systems, MAN EfficientCruise and MAN EfficientRoll, driving time control systems, MAN TimeInfo and MAN TimeControl; driving programs for the MAN TipMatic transmission are also offered as retrofits from 2022 models, with the remote software download function directly to the vehicle.
More Performance, Efficiency and Usage Optimization from MAN
In addition to safety updates to support drivers, MAN Truck & Bus takes the competition further with innovations that increase both performance and fuel economy. The new D26 engine consumes noticeably less fuel, while delivering an extra 10 HP and 50 Nm thanks to significant internal improvements since IAA 2022. In addition to the aerodynamic improvements made especially in cabin gap transitions, windshield, side and roof spoilers, the new low friction axle gear oil provides light drive axles and even more proactive MAN EfficientCruise fuel savings of up to 6 percent. With the newly integrated PredictiveDrive function, GPS cruise control is made even more efficient, while planning the optimum speed curve according to the topography ahead for predictive driving; and for this, it selects the most fuel-efficient engine operating point, taking into account the gear level. Moreover, it does this only after it accelerates to 30 km / h.
In MAN's TGL and TGM series, the new transmission stands out as the most important innovation in the powertrain area. The new MAN PowerMatic enables the MAN TGL and TGM to change gears much more efficiently. At the same time, it offers particularly wear-free starting and very high acceleration thanks to the torque converter in the automatic transmission. This makes the use of this technology even more ideal for applications belonging to institutions such as fire brigades as well as urban operations.
The innovation portfolio of innovations currently available for order for the TGX, TGS, TGL and TGM is complemented by a new battery management system that takes into account the increasing requirements of a large number of additional systems that consume electricity during idling and ensures the vehicle's starting ability by shutting down less important systems. Especially at IAA 2022, Meiller further expanded its TRIGENIUS tipper range with new products. Thus, the portfolio of ex-factory superstructure solutions for all four truck series of MAN has grown significantly and started to offer the most ideal new solutions to its customers.
Together with the MAN Mobile24 mobility guarantee, the scope of which has been expanded once again, MAN now provides drivers with many of the support they need with MAN ServiceCare, which also offers appointments abroad, roadside assistance support, tire service applications and online detailed status reports. In line with its "Simplifying Business" claim, MAN is making trucks with lions in the radiator grille more driver- and customer-oriented, more efficient and user-friendly, and above all safer, by presenting a special package containing new innovations to its customers.

Expanding the driver's rest area: In order to increase driver comfort, the volume of the driver rest area has been increased with the structural changes made in the driver rest area in all Travego and Tourismo models.
Change of kitchen type and location: In all Tourismo models, new types of kitchens (with and without water heater) were offered instead of the existing kitchen. At the same time, a relocation was made by moving the kitchens to the right part of the middle entrance. Thus, while entering and exiting the vehicle from the middle door and the driver's rest area from inside the vehicle were made more comfortable, wider seat intervals were obtained for the passengers.
Tourismo Black Edition: The Black Edition scope (black design parts on the front), previously offered in Travego models, has become standard equipment in Tourismo models in line with the positive feedback received from the industry.
Aluminum alloy wheels: Aluminum alloy wheels, offered as an option in the Tourismo 15 model, have become standard equipment. The stylish exterior appearance of aluminum alloy wheels and the advantage of a weight reduction of approximately 40 percent were valid for all coaches.
Air conditioning in the driver's rest area: The air conditioning feature in the driver's rest area, which was offered as an option in the Tourismo 15 model, started to be offered as standard equipment.
AGM batteries and other electrical changes: In all Travego and Tourismo coaches, new generation AGM batteries, which are maintenance-free, environmentally friendly and safer, have become standard equipment instead of the existing water-type batteries. IBS energy management system, which is standard equipment in Travego models, has become standard equipment in all Tourismo models in order to balance the energy consumption and production in the vehicle more efficiently. In addition, necessary electrical changes have been implemented to prevent the use of additional equipment when the vehicles are not running. With all these steps, it is aimed to offer longer-lasting batteries and more comfortable vehicle use in the winter months.
360° camera: With the 360° camera system, which is standard on Travego models and optionally on Tourismo models, it is aimed to provide all-round visibility and maximum safety while maneuvering or driving at low speeds. Using images from four exterior cameras located in the front, rear and sides of the vehicle, it is ensured that the driver can see passers-by and obstacles in areas that they cannot normally see. The driver can access the 360° top view of the vehicle and any of the four exterior cameras via the 10" screen in the cockpit.
Mercedes-Benz Luxline passenger seats: Top class Luxline passenger seats, which have been offered for many years in Travego 15 vehicles with 2+2 seat arrangement, have also become standard in Tourismo 15 and Tourismo 16 2+2 models. With the adjustable headrest system, both more comfortable and more stylish passenger seats are offered as standard in all travel buses with 2+2 seat arrangement.
Change in USB units: USB units for passengers in all Travego and Tourismo coaches were changed from A+A to A+C in line with the feedback received from the industry. With the conversion of one of the dual outputs to type C, charging opportunity was also offered for new generation electronic devices.
Change in entrance areas: In all Travego and Tourismo coaches, PVC side surface coverings were used instead of fabric in order to match the side surfaces in the front and middle entrance areas with the aisle and podium coverings and for a more elegant appearance. Thus, cleaning was also facilitated.

Boarding assistance (tilt) system: The boarding assistance (tilt) system has become standard equipment in all Travego and Tourismo models in order to increase the comfort of passengers getting in and out of the vehicle. With this system, the right part of the vehicle can automatically tilt about 5 cm during boarding and landing.
Protective foil under the windshield: In order to ensure safer driving by reducing the cracks and breakage of the windshield caused by stone collisions, especially on intercity roads, the application of a protective foil under the wiper under the windshield, where the most intense stone collisions occur, has become standard equipment in all Travego and Tourismo models. .
In the Travegos, which has been at the top of the travel buses for years, new equipment specific to the model in question was also introduced in 2022:
Additional wiper on the windshield upper: Additional wiper on the upper part of the windshield is standard on all Travego models in order to provide passengers with a clearer field of vision comfort in rainy weather.
Heated windshield: Heated windshield is standard equipment in all Travego models, which quickly removes freezing and fogging on the windshield in cold weather, increasing the comfort of the driver and passengers.

GREEN TRANSFORMATION STEPS FROM THERMO KING
Thermo King, which has been working for a long time to achieve sustainability, has made its Galway factory, the oldest factory in Europe, completely carbon neutral. This means 230 million tons less waste per year in landfills. Everything in Galway is either recyclable or made to last. The switch from wooden pallets to steel pallets alone saves the plant over one million Euros per year.
“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”
Thermo King has set its motto as “Reduce, reuse, recycle”. This means that when a product reaches the end of its life, it is recycled and reused rather than thrown away.
In this new program, a product that is at the end of its life or has a malfunction is disassembled and its reusable components are recovered. From these components, new and fully functional materials are regenerated. These are rigorously tested to ensure the same quality as original, factory-made controllers. If a part reports a failure, data is collected and sent to Thermo King After Sales team to improve the process.
Not only does the program provide a significant reduction in waste, it also provides access to more cost-effective, genuine Thermo King chiller units for customers who don't want to invest a large amount of money on one of their older refrigeration units.
Thermo King aims to reduce the carbon footprint of its customers by one billion metric tons by 2030.
