VOLVO DYNAMIC STEERING ON VOLVO FM

Since day one Volvo’s Volvo Dynamic Steering has provided perfect stability in high speeds and total control at low speeds. The latest version of the system brings with it some very useful features for your everyday driving. It’s now more customisable, and helps you maintain position on the road and can even step in when it detects a skid or slide is about to happen.

Dynamic Steering during your day

With Volvo Dynamic Steering the vibrations and kicks that feedback through the steering wheel while driving on uneven road surfaces are eliminated. Reversing and close-quarter manoeuvring is also made easier – steering wheel resistance is reduced by up to 70% at low speeds. In addition, the steering wheel automatically self-centres as soon as your grip on the wheel lightens.

At higher speeds, the truck confidently maintains its direction even on poor surfaces and in strong side-winds. The technology works with your truck’s hydraulic power steering, assisted by an electronically regulated electric motor that continuously adjusts steering inputs and provides added turning force if and when you need it.

Dynamic driving

Volvo Dynamic Steering with Personal Settings puts you in charge. It’s you who set the steering wheel resistance that fits the driving conditions and your preferences. You either choose a predefined setting or fully customize one. The result — it helps you to get exactly the driving experience you want.

Avoid skidding

Volvo Dynamic Steering with Stability Assist minimizes the risk of skidding accidents. Should the system detect a skid, it immediately adds a light steering wheel assistance. This helps you steer in the opposite direction and stabilize the vehicle — even before you know something is about to happen.

Stay in lane

Volvo Dynamic Steering with Lane Keeping Assist minimizes the risk of roll-over accidents and collisions with other vehicles. Should your truck unintentionally approach the lane markings, you are helped back in the intended direction via a gentle steering support. It’s hardly noticeable, but takes safety to a new level.

Welcome to your new cab

Volvo Dynamic Steering with External Steering lets you operate your truck via a remote control. This is ideal for where repeated short movements of the truck are combined with work outside the cab. Your productivity improves, not to mention how your working day becomes a lot more comfortable.

Unique technology 

Our patented technology combines conventional hydraulic power steering with an electric motor that's fitted to the steering gear. Processing input from multiple sensor, the ECU (Electrical Control Unit) works out where the truck’s going and the driver's intention. The motor is controlled 2,000 times every second, and uses a principle called 'torque overlay' to correct unintentional steering movements and to provide extra steering torque when needed.

Effortless driving at any speed

At high speeds, Volvo Dynamic Steering keeps you stable and dead on course. And during slow and careful manoeuvring, it provides the steering force for you, no matter the load. We’re perfectly serious when we say, you can steer the new Volvo FM with one finger.

Backwards. Now as easy as forwards.

We’ve taken the strain out of reversing a fully loaded truck. Volvo Dynamic Steering gives you perfect precision, near effortless steering and returns the wheel to neutral automatically. And with improved course stability you can reverse more than a 100 metres without drifting off course.

Arrow straight driving in any condition

The course corrections you make after braking on an uneven surface? Gone. Kicks from potholes, road ruts and markings? Almost undetectable. Volvo Dynamic Steering even balances the effect of strong side winds. So loosen your grip on the steering wheel – the truck will only change direction when you want it to.
