Recommended Posts

Fleet Owner / February 3, 2015

International ProStar trucks will now include the next-generation of active safety systems from Bendix. The system features camera, radar and brakes for enhanced safety.

“This is another example of International Truck seeking out industry-leading solutions and bringing them to market quickly for our customers,” said Bill Kozek, Navistar president, Truck and Parts. “Our unique relationship with Bendix offers our customers new options that enhance driver and vehicle safety, improve uptime and increase productivity.”

The next-generation Bendix system builds on the proven technology of Bendix ESP electronic stability system, Bendix Wingman Advanced collision mitigation technology, and AutoVue Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system from Bendix CVS. It integrates and significantly enhances the most advanced technologies in the Bendix commercial vehicle safety suite to create a system that does more—and does it better—for today's commercial vehicle market.

The Bendix next generation active safety system will be launched initially on International ProStar sleeper models with ProStar day cab and LoneStar models following later in 2015.

“We are fortunate to have close partnerships with trusted suppliers like Bendix,” Kozek added. “Through our close collaboration, we're delighted to be first to market with this technology that helps contribute to vehicle safety.”

This new technology was on display at the 64th IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, Germany. The AutoVue Lane Departure Warning system brings a substantial improvement in lane recognition. SafetyDirect is a kind of "black box" that records vehicle data not continuously but only in critical situations. The data acquired can be used for driver training purposes, and as a source of information following an accident. Through the use of radar and video-based intelligent environment sensor systems, the functionalities of the EBS (electronic braking system) and ABS brake control systems relating to driver assistance systems can be substantially expanded.

Though an America name for decades, Bendix is owned by Germany's Knorr-Bremse AG.
