With Electronic Stability Control and Collision Mitigation standard, now it’s easier than ever for drivers to focus on what matters. Here’s what you’ll find on our CE Series and RE Series school buses:
Bendix® ESP® Electronic Stability Program – Standard
Designed to work with vehicle sensors to anticipate and adapt to loss-of-control and rollover events, Bendix® ESP® monitors the status of the chassis through a wide variety of road conditions such as wet-, snow-, and ice-covered surfaces. The system quickly and automatically intervenes to assist the driver if the vehicle is reaching a critical stability threshold and can selectively apply vehicle brakes as well as de-throttle the engine.
Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ Collision Mitigation – Standard
Designed to reduce the likelihood and severity of rear-end accidents, the Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ system utilizes radar to identify metallic objects up to 500 feet in front of the vehicle through most bad weather. In addition to providing automatic driver alerts, the technology includes adaptive cruise control, automatic braking and basic telematics data support.
Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ Collision Mitigation – Available on CE Series
In addition to all the benefits of the Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ system, the Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ system employs an enhanced camera technology that’s integrated with radar that includes lane departure warnings, speeding alerts and automatic braking when stationary vehicles are detected in the vehicle’s path. The system also prioritizes alerts to mitigate driver distraction when multiple alerts would occur simultaneously.
