SAFETY

Driving comfort, excellent visibility and the right powerplant are the crucial factors for safety. Ducato combines leading-edge technologies to guarantee control in even the most extreme situations

 

FULL BRAKE CONTROLL

FBC helps to prevent collisions and reduces their severity by detecting obstacles ahead. The device alerts the driver, and if he fails to react, it brakes automatically.

BLIND SPOT ASSIST BSA

BSA uses radar sensors to detect oncoming vehicles which are not visible because they are in the rearview mirror blind spot.​

REAR CROSS PATH DETECTION (RCP)

The device detects vehicles approaching from the sides and helps to prevent accidents when manoeuvring, especially for vehicles with a limited field of vision, such as Camping Cars.

CRUISE CONTROLL AND SPEED LIMITER

Cruise Control allows you to set the cruising speed while keeping it constant. The Speed ​​Limiter integrated in the Cruise Control on the 140, 160 and 180 MultiJet versions allows you to set the maximum speed the vehicle can reach, increasing safety. By pushing the accelerator fully down, the driver can exceed the limit set for particular overtaking maneuvers.​​​​​

ESC

ESC intervenes in emergency situations, for example in sudden swerving manoeuvres around an obstacle. It monitors parameters such as lateral acceleration, speed, grip and angle of the steering wheel. It processes the data and, if necessary, intervenes on the drive torque and braking system to restore perfect stability to the motorhome. ESC is also available on Al-Ko versions. The ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system includes: LAC (Load Adaptive Control), which monitors the load distribution and interacts with the ESC to adapt its intervention threshold; ASR (anti-slip regulation), which prevent the wheels from slipping when setting off; MSR (Motor Schleppmoment Regelung), which prevents loss of grip with sudden downward gear changes; HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assistance), which increases braking force in the event of an emergency.

ROLL OVER MITIGATION

Additional assistance for the ESC in situations where the risk of rollover is greater, which reduces rollover, in other words the side inclination of the motorhome with respect to the road surface, even on bends. ​​​​

HILL HOLDER

Keeps the vehicle braked when starting uphill, inhibiting rearward motion without using the handbrake. The brake is released automatically (integrated with the ESC) when the engine delvers enough torque to move the vehicle forward.

LDWS (LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM)

The Lane Departure Warning System can determine whether the motorhome is changing lane when the driver does not wish it to, even in low-visibility weather conditions. In the event of danger, an acoustic and visual signal alerts the driver of the potential impending threat.​​​

TRACTION+

Traction+ is the innovative traction control system that helps you tackle low-grip surfaces. In the presence of ESC and under conditions of low or zero grip from any drive wheel, the control unit detects slip and brakes, transmitting the drive torque on the wheel with greater grip on the ground. In this way, the motorhome’s performance is more comfortable, ensuring the best stability and handling. It is activated only when necessary, using a button on the dashboard and up to 30 km/h.

HILL DESCENT CONTROL

On the steepest downhill slopes, in the presence of Traction+, it maintains the desired speed without the need to operate the brake. So you can focus on steering, without distractions. It is activated via a dedicated button on the dashboard.​

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

Using the on-board camera of the LDWS, TSR assists the driver by recognising speed limit and overtaking signs and reproducing them on the on-board display so as to inform the driver.​

​TSR (TRAFFIC SIGNS RECOGNITION)

Using the on-board camera of the LDWS, TSR assists the driver by recognising speed limit and overtaking signs and reproducing them on the on-board display so as to inform the driver.​​

HIGH BEAM RECOGNITION

In the presence of the LDWS, this manages the automatic activation and deactivation of the main beam headlights, increasing visibility and reducing the risk of dazzling when driving at night, recognising vehicles travelling in the lane.

RAIN AND DUSK SENSOR

​The Rain Sensor, in accordance with the intensity of the rain, activates the wipers and regulates their speed.
The Dusk Sensor automatically switches on dipped headlights when the outside light is insufficient.​

REAR VIEW CAMERA

The rear view camera, mounted in the third brake light, provides a wide, detailed view of the area behind the vehicle on the radio system screen, with grid lines which help when estimating how close obstacles are. It is activated automatically in reverse gear at speeds below 15 km/h and can also operate with the vehicle stationary, without reverse gear engaged and with the rear doors open.
