International Truck has announced that its upcoming LT Series on-highway Class 8 tractor will come standard with an advanced driver assistance safety system that includes collision mitigation and stability technologies.
Bendix Wingman Advanced is the standard solution offered on the LT Series, giving drivers following distance and stationary object alerts, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking and Bendix ESP stability technology. The system can help drivers avoid collisions, roll-overs and loss-of-control situations.
For fleets, the system can also provide data to help keep owners and operators aware of what is happening on the road.
"As part of our DriverFirst philosophy, driver safety is paramount when operating a truck and we're proud to lead the way by integrating a standard solution on the new LT Series, which demonstrates our commitment to drivers, their safety, and their livelihood,” said Bill Kozek, president, truck and parts at Navistar. "We continue to integrate industry-leading safety technologies on our vehicles and we're pleased to be the first OEM to make this level of driver assistance system standard on our newest on-highway tractor.”
