How Volvo Dynamic Steering Made World-First Stunt Possible

Throughout his career, Jean-Claude Van Damme has had to perform some hair-raising stunts – but nothing quite like perfor
In Volvo Trucks' latest live test film 'The Epic Split', Hollywood action star Jean-Claude Van Damme performs one of his world-famous splits between two Volvo FM trucks as they are driven in reverse. However, the incredible stunt – a world first – was only made possible by Volvo Dynamic Steering.

Volvo Dynamic Steering – an innovative new system developed by Volvo Trucks – greatly improves precision and stability in any driving situation. It works through an electronically controlled electric motor that is adjusted around 2,000 times per second to create highly precise steering. When driving in reverse, Volvo Dynamic Steering offers excellent control with minimal effort.
