Collision Mitigation – Buses

Introducing the Bendix™ Wingman® Fusion™ system for IC Buses. Collision Mitigation system uses radar to identify objects in it’s path. Includes camera integrated with radar for more capabilities and higher performance.

The Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ system is the latest innovation for school buses from the industry leader in active braking technologies – Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems. Bendix Wingman Advanced brings together adaptive cruise control with braking features along with collision mitigation technology, and our full-stability technology – Bendix® ESP® – providing your fleet with a system that can help. Your fleet benefits from a potent combination of active safety technologies that can help your drivers in collisions, rollovers, and loss-of-control situations. In addition, the system can provide data, to help keep you in the know about what’s happening out on the road.

Driver Interface Unit

  • Located on the vehicle dash.
  • Utilizes audible alerts and visual warnings.

Driver Assistance, not Driver Replacement

  • Added intelligence and intervention.
  • Driver remains in control

Active and Passive Assistance

  • Can de-throttle engine, engage retarder, and apply brakes.
  • Alerts driver that action may be needed.
  • IC Bus is the only school bus OEM that offers both active and passive safety features.

Following Distance Alerts

  • Alerts start when speed exceeds 5 mph.
  • From 5 to 37 mph typically 1 to 2 alerts.
  • Above 37 mph, typically 3 alerts.
  • Provides following distance and speed of forward vehicle.
  • As driver backs away, alerts go off.

Impact Alerts and Automatic Emergency Braking

  • Can help reduce rear-end collisions.
  • Above 15 mph, informs driver following distance is closing too fast.
  • Actively intervenes and applies brakes if necessary.
  • Driver can add more braking or steering.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Braking

  • Reinforces safer distance between bus and vehicle ahead.
  • Utilizes engine de-throttle, engage retarder, and foundation brakes.
  • Automatically maintaines up to a 3.5 second gap.
  • Takes action when cruise is engaged.

Stationary Object Alerts

  • Warns that a metallic object of size is in the lane of travel.
  • Above 10 mph gives up to a 3 second warning.
  • Allows driver to slow or swerve.

Stationary Vehicle Braking

  • Radar and camera confirm the vehicle ahead.
  • Activates at above 15 mph.
  • Driver notified up to 3.5 seconds before potential impact.
  • If driver doesn’t take action, brakes are automatically applied.

Overspeed Alerts and Action

  • System camera reads most speed limit signs.
  • Above 20 mph, two levels of alerts and/or intervention.
  • +5 mph – Audible warning.
  • +10 mph – Alert and 1 second de-throttle.

Lane Departure Warning

  • Helps mitigate side-swipe crashes.
  • Above 37 mph, alerts driver when vehicle leaves lane.
  • Rumble sound if vehicle goes 6 inches out of lane.
  • Can discontinue for 15 minute increments, if needed.
  • Use of turn signal to indicate lane change suppresses alert.
