Crash Recovery System Developments
Improved truck cab display
Most trucks can be supplied with the choice of more than one cab type. For example, Scania supplies the R-series with a day cab, lowered day cab, sleeper cab, lowered sleeper cab, long sleeper cab or high sleeper cab, which differ in size. To reflect that distinction, each cab type received its own rescue sheet in the Crash Recovery System, but that has now changed.
A disadvantage of this way of displaying is that in most cases CRS users cannot define the type of cab, as almost in all cases there are no markings on the truck itself. Moreover, in an emergency situation there is usually no time to find out. The user is therefore not sure which type of cab to choose from the list of search results, neither with manual selection nor through a licence plate search.
We now display all cab types in one rescue sheet (with a few exceptions), by adding the contours of all possible cab types to the basic cab by means of dotted lines. Since the location of the safety components present is the same for all types, only one rescue sheet is required per truck model. As a result, the user now has the correct rescue sheet to hand sooner!
