A new video from Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems takes viewers inside the cab of a truck equipped with Bendix Wingman Fusion, offering a detailed look at how the integrated collision mitigation system assists and benefits drivers.
In addition to covering Fusion’s capabilities, components, alerts, and interventions, the video also provides perspective on the development of the proven technologies behind the system, and explores the differences in the industry’s range of collision mitigation offerings, the company says.
The in-depth video, “Driving with Bendix Wingman Fusion,” also is complemented on Bendix’s YouTube page by a second piece entitled “Fusion System Alerts – A View from the Driver’s Seat,” featuring the in-cab experience from the eyes and hands of the driver.
“With the evolution of driver assistance systems since 2009 and the continuing buildup about autonomous vehicle applications, it’s important that fleets – and especially drivers – get a clear picture of what to expect in terms of alerts and interventions from the technology in place on their vehicle,” says Fred Andersky, Bendix director of customer solutions, Controls. “That’s why we bring viewers into the cab so they can see and hear how Fusion can help to make a good driver better, while reminding them of the importance of skilled drivers in collision and crash mitigation.
“It’s important that drivers are aware of the advancements since their operation may have vehicles with different types – or even different generations – of collision mitigation or warning technologies.”
