Peterbilt is adding Bendix Wingman Advanced to its medium-duty Models 337 and 348, providing collision mitigation technology that improves safety and integrates with the Bendix ESP full stability system. Bendix Wingman Advanced gives drivers alerts to take evasive action and will actively engage braking if the system detects an imminent collision.
“The introduction of Bendix Wingman Advanced further establishes Peterbilt as a safety leader,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt’s chief engineer. “This collision mitigation technology will enhance safety for our customers operating medium-duty trucks, which are often used in congested urban areas or jobsites. It complements existing safety features, such as Bendix ESP, to help maintain vehicle stability during hard braking and assists the driver in operating safely with automation when needed.”
“Peterbilt and Bendix have been proud partners in safety for a very long time, and the expanded availability of Wingman Advanced is another high point in our relationship,” said Scott Burkhart, vice president of sales, marketing, and business development for Bendix. “The professionals behind the wheel of Peterbilt Models 337 and 348 will benefit from this collision mitigation technology, which has been proven over millions of miles, a wide range of applications, and in every kind of driving condition. We share Peterbilt’s goal of bringing safety, performance, and value to its customers, while helping to make roads safer for everybody.”
