ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix is claiming its next-generation commercial vehicle safety system will offer features “never before possible for commercial vehicles in North America.”
The system is being developed with suppliers including TRW and Mobileye and will be available through truck OEMs.
Bendix says it will dramatically enhance features currently available in driver assistance systems, such as collision mitigation.
“Our current safety systems deliver outstanding performance, but customers can expect additional enhancements in vehicle identification and fixed-object accuracy from the new system that can automatically apply brakes based on combined radar-vision input,” said TJ Thomas, director of marketing and customer solutions, with Bendix’s controls group.
The vision aspect will utilize a TRW camera adapted for use by Bendix and powered by the Mobileye System-on-Chip EyeQ2 processor, which Bendix says offers state-of-the-art algorithms.
“Our new system will once again raise the bar for functionality, safety, ROI, and driver acceptance for fleets,” Thomas said. “Current radar-based safety systems…offer exceptional ROI for fleet customers. Our next-generation technology makes a highly effective solution even stronger.”
There was no word yet, on when the new system will be released.
