“This proven Bendix technology is popular with our Class 8 fleet customers. Now, Kenworth medium-duty truck operators can specify the system on new Kenworth T270 and T370 trucks to help avoid collisions not only on the freeway, but also in urban driving conditions experienced by medium-duty truck operators,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth’s marketing director.

Using a radar sensor mounted to the front of the vehicle, Bendix Wingman Advanced delivers both warning alerts to drivers and active interventions. The system provides following distance, impact and stationary object alerts, which are always available—whether or not cruise control is engaged. When drivers engage cruise control and set speed, the system will actively intervene to help them maintain a safe following distance behind a forward vehicle by reducing throttle; engaging the engine retarder; or, if necessary, applying the foundation brakes.
