Incorporating technologies from TRW and Mobileye, the next-generation commercial vehicle safety system from Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC is in full development. Along with its supplier partners, Bendix said it is continuing to develop, test and launch the new safety system, which will be available exclusively through major truck OEMs.
The next generation Bendix safety system, according to TJ Thomas, director of marketing and customer solutions, Controls group, will have enhanced vehicle identification and fixed-object accuracy features. A new feature, which will automatically apply brakes based on combined radar-vision input, will utilize a TRW camera that has been adapted for use by Bendix. The camera is powered by the Mobileye System-on-Chip EyeQ2 processor with vision algorithms.
