By On-Site Staff
The next generation of Bendix Wingman Fusion is now available on the heavy-duty Mack Granite.
The camera- and radar-based driving assistance solution, now entering its second generation, offers features such as automatic emergency braking (AEB) and enhanced lane departure warnings.
“Mack Trucks remains at the industry forefront when it comes to offering technology that enhances the total cost of ownership for our customers,” Tim Wrinkle, Mack construction product manager, said in a release. “Offering Bendix Wingman Fusion on our Granite model is just another example of Mack raising the bar by offering safety technology to help our customers mitigate the potential for accidents.”
Among other advancements, Mack said the next generation of Bendix Wingman Fusion features improved following distance alerts with up to 3.5 seconds of warning before impact, and offers three levels of driver notification before the technology automatically applies the brakes using AEB.
