UD Trucks Demonstrates Steering Precision of UD Active Steering 

In conjunction with the launch of UD Active Steering in Japan on 1st July, UD Trucks demonstrated the steering precision of this technology through the medium of calligraphy,  creating the world’s largest Kanji (Japanese character) ever drawn by a truck.

A heavy-duty Quon equipped with UD Active Steering drew the character for ‘technique’, or Waza in Japanese.

The giant masterpiece was created in collaboration with renown calligrapher, Gyousyou Suzuki. A giant brush was mounted to the rear of the UD Active Steering-equipped Quon.

On Suzuki’s direction, the truck drew the character, stroke by stroke, with mastery akin to the delicate and deliberate hand and brush movements of the calligrapher himself. The ability to steer the truck with such a light touch, even by a single finger, made this feat possible.
