Mack makes stability protection standard

Mack Trucks Inc is making its Road Stability Advantage by Bendix (Mack RSA) system standard on its highway vehicles.

A full electronic stability system, Mack RSA is designed to reduce incident potential. It uses the existing ABS wheel speed sensors, along with steering, yaw, and lateral acceleration inputs, to deactivate the throttle and selectively apply the brakes in sharp curves, sudden lane changes, or obstacle avoidance maneuvers.

Mack began offering the RSA system as an option on its highway tractors late in 2005.
