The Hino Genuine reverse cameras are ADR-compliant, waterproof and offer wide view high-definition quality vision. The cameras are also infrared night-vision enabled and have the added benefit of a built-in microphone.
Displaying a live video and sound feed to the touch-screen multimedia unit, the driver is able to navigate in reverse with confidence and safety, reducing the risk of injury and increasing workplace safety.
The microphone incorporated in the main camera enables voice instructions to be communicated to the driver, informing them of any hazards which may not be immediately visible.
The driver now has a near 360-degree view of the vehicle's surroundings when combined with the Hino 300 Series' superior forward field of vision, including large electronically adjustable and heated mirrors with integrated convex spotter mirrors.
The reverse camera complements an industry-leading package of standard safety and comfort features, including true automatic transmission options, cruise control as standard, ABS and VSC, air conditioning, engine immobilisers, and a 6.1-inch high definition multimedia unit with DAB+ digital radio and smartphone Bluetooth™ connectivity.
VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL (VSC)
A compulsory safety feature on new passenger vehicles, the new Hino 300 Series is the first light duty truck in Australia to include life-saving Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) as standard equipment.
VSC acts as an additional layer of safety by applying selective braking to individual wheels, assisting the driver in maintaining control of the vehicle.
It incorporates traction control, and is designed to help prevent the vehicle from skidding out of control should it deviate from the driver's intended path through a corner.
It is recognised by experts across the world as being active safety technology that saves lives.
The VSC and traction control system can be switched off - to assist in control of the drive wheel traction when the vehicle is in muddy conditions by spinning the drive tyres to clear the tread.
DUAL FRONT SRS AIRBAGS
As expected from a truck with such impressive safety credentials, the all new Hino 300 Series light duty truck includes dual front SRS airbags (for both driver and passenger), coupled with emergency locking retracting (ELR) pretensioning seatbelts.
Airbag have proven to be an effective safety device over many years, measurably reducing the severity of injuries sustained by vehicle occupants during a severe accident.
Airbags are just one aspect of a raft of safety features incorporated in the new 300 Series, creating an unbeatable active and passive safety package.
FOUR-WHEEL VENTILATED DISC BRAKES WITH ABS
All Hino 300 Series models have four-wheel ventilated disc brakes with ABS braking, electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA) as standard equipment.
Hino was the first manufacturer to offer four-wheel ventilated discs in the light truck market with the launch of the Hino Dutro, and this feature is still unique to Hino.
Brake Assist is designed to assist the driver in emergency braking, where the driver is attempting to apply the high pedal force required to obtain the shortest possible braking distance.
Together these technologies ensure that maximum stopping power is available, regardless of how the vehicle is laden and the prevailing road conditions.
