International Makes Bendix Wingman Fusion Standard on All On-Highway Tractors

Recommended Posts

Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT)  /  February 13, 2019

International Truck is now offering the Bendix Wingman Fusion collision mitigation technology as standard equipment across its entire lineup of on-highway tractors, including the International LoneStar, LT Series and RH Series trucks.

Bendix Wingman Fusion integrates radar, camera and the vehicle’s brake system into a driver assistance system that delivers driver alerts and interventions to help drivers mitigate rear-end collision, rollovers and loss-of-control situations. Wingman Fusion combines and cross-checks information from a suite of sensors to assesses situations faster and reacts earlier, while also helping to reduce false alerts and false interventions.

By creating a highly detailed and accurate data picture, Bendix Wingman Fusion delivers enhanced rear-end collision mitigation, and adaptive cruise control, along with following distance alerts, stationary object alerts, lane departure warning, alerts when speeding, and braking on stationary vehicles – all while prioritizing alerts to help reduce driver distraction.

Event-based data – including video – can be wirelessly transmitted for driver coaching and analysis by fleet safety personnel. Other options include blind spot detection that helps drivers address vehicles in their blind spots that may not be visible in their mirrors. The forward-facing camera of Wingman Fusion is powered by the Mobileye System-on-Chip EyeQ processor with state-of-the-art vision algorithms.

“As part of our DriverFirst philosophy, we concentrate on consistently improving the overall driver experience, specifically safety,” said Jim Nachtman, director, heavy-duty, Marketing, International Truck. “Partnering with Bendix to make Fusion standard on all of International Truck’s heavy-duty vehicles makes for an important joint contribution to make North American roadways safer for everyone.”

Since 2015, International Truck has offered the technology as an option for all on-highway models. Bendix Wingman Fusion is also available as an option on International’s medium-duty lineup, including the International MV Series, HV Series, HX Series and CV Series trucks.

Just what the " professional driver"needs the same incompetence mitigation devices that are forced on the non professional driver! The insurance industry has to have a major part in this nonsense!
