Collision mitigation added to Pete medium-duty trucks

Peterbilt is adding Bendix Wingman Advanced to its medium-duty Models 337 and 348, providing collision mitigation technology that improves safety and integrates with the Bendix ESP full stability system.

Bendix Wingman Advanced gives drivers alerts to take evasive action and will actively engage braking if the system detects an imminent collision.

“The introduction of Bendix Wingman Advanced further establishes Peterbilt as a safety leader,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt chief engineer. “This collision mitigation technology will enhance safety for our customers operating medium-duty trucks, which are often used in congested urban areas or jobsites. It complements existing safety features, such as Bendix ESP, to help maintain vehicle stability during hard braking and assists the driver in operating safely with automation when needed.”

Bendix Wingman Advanced uses a radar-based sensor to help drivers keep safe following distances through adaptive cruise control and to detect stationary metallic objects regardless of darkness, fog, rain, smoke, and snow.
