The video camera component of the Bendix Wingman Fusion collision mitigation technology and AutoVue Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System from Bendix CVS will remain compliant with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules, thanks to an exemption that was recently made permanent. Effective Oct. 24, the rule change allows certain devices that utilize “vehicle safety technology” to be placed on the interior of commercial vehicle windshields within the area that is swept by the windshield wipers.

Bendix had previously received a regulatory two-year exemption and several subsequent two-year extensions for its windshield-mounted camera. As a result, the camera used in AutoVue and Wingman Fusion already meets the FMCSA safety technology standard.

“This ruling marks an important step in the continuation of the commercial vehicle industry’s highway safety efforts by ensuring that the development of these technologies can continue without fleets and drivers having to worry about violating windshield clearance rules,” said Fred Andersky, director of government and industry affairs for Bendix. “Each day, more fleets, drivers, and truck manufacturers are realizing the benefits of active and supportive safety technologies that help make a positive impact on roadway safety. This decision paves the way for continued seamless integration of even more autonomous technologies into an overall safety plan.”
