Frequently Asked Questions

Cruise control can be set normally, but it will not allow the driver to set it higher than the allowed speed limit. For example, if the truck is cruising in a 70mph zone and enters a 55mph zone, the E-SMART system will deactivate the cruise control and only be able to be reset once the truck has coasted down to the new allowed speed limit. If the driver adjusts speed down before entering the lower speed zone, deactivation of cruise will be avoided. Without preventative action, the E-SMART system will disengage cruise when the truck enters a lower speed zone.

The allowed speed limit is the speed limit set by your company per speed zones. It could be equal to the posted speed limit, higher or lower. This information will be specific to each company. Tyson’s top speed will be set at 70 mph.

The E-SMART system does not interact with the brake in any circumstances. It only limits the speed by controlling the acceleration pedal.

Yes. E-SMART will limit your vehicle speed in school zones according to the time window those zones are applicable. If you are outside of those time windows, your vehicle will follow the usual speed limit.

When entering a lower speed zone, E-SMART will only allow the vehicle to accelerate once it has coasted below the new allowed speed limit. It is possible that the vehicle coasts down 1-2mph lower than the new allowed speed limit before you get access to your throttle again. 

No, the E-SMART system uses GPS to know speed limits, it does not use cameras.

The E-SMART system will know about long-term construction zones which have been reported by each state’s DOT. The smaller, short-term construction areas may not be in the system, so you will still need to adjust your speed accordingly.
