ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has acquired the AutoVue lane departure warning system from Iteris.
Also included in the deal is Iteris’ SafetyDirect safety system. The deal is expected to close Aug. 31, at which time Bendix will incorporate the technologies into its own electronics business units. The acquisitions will round out a suite of safety systems that already includes: Bendix ESP Electronic Stability Program; Bendix Wingman Advanced collision mitigation technology; and SmarTire, a tire pressure monitoring system.
“This move reinforces our commitment to actively pursue business opportunities and effective technologies that help improve highway safety, enhance vehicle operation, and help fleets manage and maintain operating cost margins. It takes Bendix another step down our firmly established technology development road map and complements our global driver assistance strategy,” said Joe McAleese, Bendix president and CEO. “North American fleets have been asking Bendix for safety data to further improve their return on investment in safety technology. SafetyDirect is a solid solution for large and small fleets that have already invested in telematics capability.”
