OptiTurn™

WABCO’s intelligent OptiTurn function increases the turning radius of the trailer by up to 0.5m, improving the driver’s ability to steer his trailer through short curves and to maneuver at loading bays and in city centers. This innovative function automatically detects corners and curves and either releases the rear axle bellows’ pressure or lifts the rear axle for added steering capability during maneuvering.
