Bendix Wingman Fusion advanced driver assistance system with an enhanced feature set is now available for order on select new Kenworth heavy- and medium-duty trucks.
Currently standard for the on-highway flagship Kenworth T680, the Bendix Wingman Fusion is also optional for the Kenworth T880 vocational leader and Kenworth T270 and T370 conventional medium-duty models.
According to the company, fleets will benefit from the new Highway Departure Braking and Multi-Lane Autonomous Emergency Braking features available in the latest Bendix Wingman Fusion.
Highway Departure Braking provides auditory and visual alerts to the driver and, if necessary, applies the foundation brakes to reduce vehicle speed, if the system determines the vehicle has left the roadway unintentionally.
Once a collision-mitigation braking event begins and the driver steers into an adjacent lane to avoid the forward vehicle, Bendix Wingman Fusion’s new Multi-Lane Autonomous Emergency Braking feature continues to apply the brakes when it detects another forward vehicle blocking the path in the new traffic lane.
