ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has won the Frost & Sullivan 2011 North American Product Leadership of the Year Award in the commercial vehicle safety systems market.
Bendix won the award for its Wingman Advanced technology, which is designed to deliver adaptive cruise control with braking features, along with collision mitigation technology. The Wingman technology was launched at the 2009 Mid-America Trucking Show.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
In determining the Product Leadership of the Year Award, Frost & Sullivan measured products against five benchmarking criteria: features and functionality, innovation, acceptance in the marketplace, customer value enhancements, and quality. According to Frost & Sullivan, the Bendix Wingman Advanced system earned the award because it takes the integrated safety systems market to the next level by combining three critical active safety technologies – electronic stability control, adaptive cruise control with braking, and forward collision mitigation braking and warning – into a single unit.
“Bendix is honoured to receive this prestigious award from Frost & Sullivan,” said Kevin Romanchok, product line director, electronics at Bendix. “We believe the Bendix Wingman Advanced solution is the latest step forward in commercial vehicle safety. It further demonstrates the company’s commitment to the safety of our nation’s roadways, while delivering cost-effective, active safety solutions that help fleets and drivers, especially in the current CSA environment.”
