The Bendix Wingman Advanced system is now available for order as an option on Kenworth T270 and T370 medium-duty trucks.
The radar-based collision mitigation system delivers adaptive cruise control with braking, along with autonomous emergency braking technology to help drivers avoid rear-end collisions.
Using a radar sensor mounted to the front of a vehicle, Bendix Wingman Advanced warns drivers with alerts and with active interventions.
The system provides following distance, impact and stationary object alerts that are on whether or not cruise control is active. When cruise control is engaged, the system will actively intervene to help maintain a safe following distance by reducing throttle, engaging the engine retarder, or, if necessary, applying the foundation brakes.
Bendix Wingman Advanced builds upon the full-stability technology of Bendix ESP (Electronic Stability Program) to provide fleets and truck operators with a system that can help drivers avoid potential collisions, rollovers, and loss-of-control situations.
