The International ProStar will be the first truck to offer Bendix’s Next Generation Active Safety System comprised of a package of automated camera, radar and brake technologies. The system will initially be available on ProStar sleeper models with ProStar daycab and LoneStar models to follow later in 2015.
“We are fortunate to have close partnerships with trusted suppliers like Bendix,” said Bill Kozek, president of Navistar. “Through our close collaboration, we’re delighted to be first to market with this technology that helps contribute to vehicle safety.”
The Active Safety System builds on the Bendix ESP electronic stability system, Bendix Wingman Advanced collision mitigation technology and AutoVue Lane Departure Warning system from Bendix CVS. It integrates and enhances the technologies to create a system designed for the commercial vehicle market, says International.
“Our unique relationship with Bendix offers our customers new options that enhance driver and vehicle safety, improve uptime and increase productivity,” said Kozek.
