Bendix launches Wingman Fusion driver assistance system

Bendix Wingman Fusion, an integration of advanced safety technologies, is now available from Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC, offering new capabilities and unequalled performance to North American fleets and drivers.

Wingman Fusion combines a suite of Bendix advanced safety technologies—radar, camera, the vehicle’s brakes and SafetyDirect by Bendix CVS—into a comprehensive driver assistance system. With multiple sensors sharing and confirming situational data, the new Bendix system makes possible stationary vehicle braking, as well as overspeed alert and action—revolutionary features exclusive to the North American commercial vehicle market.

Bendix Wingman Fusion integrates technology from road-tested Bendix components and systems, including the Bendix Electronic Stability Program (ESP) full-stability system, Bendix Wingman Advanced—a collision mitigation technology, and AutoVue Lane Departure Warning System from Bendix CVS. Built on these existing technologies, Wingman Fusion gathers input through radar, video, and the vehicle’s brakes, creating a highly detailed and accurate data picture that’s achievable through its deep, multi-system integration.

Wingman Fusion’s stationary vehicle braking capability is made possible by the use of combining both radar and camera data to confirm a vehicle ahead and is activated at speeds above 15 MPH. When the system definitively recognizes a large, stationary, metallic, in-lane object as a vehicle, it notifies the driver up to three-and-a-half seconds before a potential impact. If the driver takes no action to avoid or mitigate this potentially severe impact, the system can automatically engage the brakes to assist in lessening the severity of or possibly avoiding, a potential collision altogether. If the system’s data do not definitively recognize the stationary object as a vehicle, it will alert the driver up to three seconds ahead of a potential impact, with no automatic braking.

“The usefulness of stationary vehicle braking is best illustrated by imagining a stalled vehicle or a line of stopped traffic, which may not be immediately recognized by even a skilled, veteran driver,” said TJ Thomas, Bendix director of marketing and customer solutions, Controls group. “Without Wingman Fusion’s automatic alert and braking, it may be too late to avert an impact.”

Wingman Fusion’s overspeed alert and action can be activated at 37 MPH or above and uses the system’s camera to read roadside speed limit signs, working in tandem with Bendix ESP to alert the driver when the vehicle is travelling a specified amount over the posted limit. The system provides two customizable levels of intervention: Level one, initially set for 5 to 9 MPH over the limit, is an audible warning; and level two, if the vehicle is travelling 10 mph or more over the limit, is an audible alert accompanied by a one-second engine de-throttle.
