Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced its Bendix Wingman Fusion with an enhanced feature set is now standard safety equipment on the International Trucks LT and RH series, and an option on the MV, HV and HX series.

Using sensors that work together and not just in parallel, Bendix Wingman Fusion with the enhanced feature set gathers input through radar, video and the vehicle’s braking system to deliver enhanced autonomous emergency braking, according to Elyria, Ohio-based Bendix, a unit of Germany-based Knorr-Bremse.

Additionally, International is the first North American truck manufacturer to offer Bendix’s Fusion ACB (active cruise with braking) Stop & Driver Go and new active steering with lane-keep-assist capabilities, both available as options for the LT and RH Series.

“Safety systems play an important role in our DriverFirst philosophy,” Charles Chilton, vice president of Navistar product strategy and planning, said in a release. “Offering these expanded and improved Bendix systems supports that commitment and contributes to a safer transportation environment across North America.”

Bendix launched Wingman Fusion in 2015, integrating radar, camera and a vehicle’s brake system to create its flagship driver assistance system. Since then, it has expanded and improved Fusion’s capabilities through advancements such as providing full braking power on the tractor and earlier object detection. — Transport Topics
