Peterbilt announced that enhanced standard collision mitigation features on the Bendix Fusion safety system will be standard equipment on new Model 579 trucks.

The Bendix Fusion system offers several safety enhancements for drivers. Peterbilt highlighted Fusion Stop & Auto-Go, which aids drivers in heavy traffic situations with active cruise and braking to zero miles mphf necessary. 

The Fusion Stop & Auto-Go holds the truck in place after an automatic braking event. It then automatically resumes acceleration to the initial, pre-set cruise speed without driver intervention, when the truck can progress forward with a safe following distance.

The Fusion Stop & Auto-Go features are fully integrated with the Model 579’s Peterbilt Digital Display. All alerts are prominently displayed for the driver and accompanied by audible warnings to promote safety on the road.

Other safety features on the Model 579 include collision mitigation technologies such as highway lane departure braking, multi-lane emergency braking, and stationary vehicle braking.
