Bendix announced it will hold a regional Ride-and-Drive technology demonstration in Charlotte, N.C., as part of the 2022 season of its demo program.
The demonstration is being held May 17-19 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, 5555 Concord Parkway South, Concord, N.C. Any fleets and dealers in the demo area, as well as drivers and driver trainers, are welcome, the company says.
Bendix says participants will receive a firsthand view of advanced technologies in action — real-world scenarios drivers encounter daily — and they will gain a better understanding of the performance and value these technologies can deliver.
Following a short safety briefing, attendees will move to the track to log time in the trucks with Bendix demo drivers. Each demo closes with a question-and-answer period facilitated by Bendix’s technology experts.
Bendix will demonstrate its full spectrum of its tractor- and trailer-based safety technologies, including the flagship advanced driver assistance system, Bendix Wingman Fusion; and the Bendix ADB22X air disc brake. The 2022 program will also showcase the Bendix Intellipark Electronic Parking Brake technology, as well as SafetyDirect by Bendix CVS, updates to the Bendix BlindSpotter side object detection system, and more.
Advanced registration is requested. State rules regarding any applicable COVID-19 precautions and protocols will be followed.
