Mack makes Wingman Fusion standard for Anthem


Mack Trucks announced last month that Bendix Wingman Fusion will now be standard on new Mack Anthem Trucks.

The model was launched in September 2017 and it has been highlighted at several trade shows and media events.  The Anthem model line includes both sleeper models and a day cab model.

“It’s quite a fitting match, equipping Bendix’s most advanced safety systems with the bold look and improved efficiency that have made the Anthem such an attention-getter since its unveiling,” says Scott Burkhart, Bendix vice president – sales, marketing, and business development. “Mack is a longtime partner of Bendix when it comes to helping fleets and owner-operators put the safest available vehicles on the road, so we’re proud and honored to see Wingman Fusion join Mack’s efforts to help increase the safety of everyone on North America’s trucks and highways.”

Successful Dealer Staff report that Bendix says Wingman Fusion integrates and advances a proven, road-tested suite of Bendix safety technologies – radar, camera, and the vehicle’s brake system – into a comprehensive driver assistance system. Unlike radar-only systems, Fusion combines and cross-checks information from multiple sources, enabling it to deliver enhanced rear-end collision mitigation, lane departure warning, overspeed alerts and action, and braking on stationary vehicles.

The SD Staff go on to say it is built on the Bendix ESP full-stability program, Bendix says the system also helps drivers avoid additional crash situations, including rollovers, loss-of-control, and sideswipe crashes, while prioritizing alerts to help reduce driver distraction. By gathering input through radar, camera, and the vehicle’s brakes – working together, and not just in parallel – Bendix Wingman Fusion creates a highly detailed and accurate data picture using deep, multi-system integration. The system’s camera is powered by the Mobileye System-on-Chip EyeQ processor with state-of-the-art vision algorithms.
