Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems - Bendix® Wingman® Advanced

By: Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems  09-12-2011

Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ brings together adaptive cruise control with braking features along with collision mitigation technology, and our full-stability technology – Bendix® ESP®. Your fleet can benefit from a potent combination of active safety technologies that can help your drivers in collisions, roll-overs, and loss-of-control situations. In addition, the system can provide data, to help keep you in the know about what’s happening out on the road.

Helping your drivers on the highway

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on average 2-3 rear-end collisions involving heavy trucks occur somewhere in the U.S. every hour. When the distance between your driver’s truck and the vehicle they’re following starts to close, Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ provides the driver following distance alerts and, if necessary, will apply the brakes to help the driver potentially avoid the collision, or help reduce its severity. Unique to Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ are stationary object alerts. These alerts give the driver a warning (up to 3.0 seconds) of a metallic object, such as a stalled car, blocking the lane of travel.

Making a positive contribution to your bottom line

It’s all about getting a quick return on your safety investment. The Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ system helps your fleet in two significant ways. First, by helping drivers potentially avoid rear-end collisions or, at least, help reduce their severity, your fleet may see fewer accidents and less accident-related costs. Second, the system can help your drivers stay in cruise control longer, which – depending on your fleet operations – can result in significant fuel savings.
