Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC is the recipient of the Frost & Sullivan 2011 North American Product Leadership of the Year Award in the Commercial Vehicle Safety Systems Market.
Frost & Sullivan is honoring Bendix specifically for the company's Wingman Advanced collision mitigation technology. Wingman Advanced, an evolution of the company's Wingman ACB (Active Cruise with Braking) technology, delivers adaptive cruise control with braking features, along with collision mitigation technology. The Wingman system builds upon the company's full-stability technology — Bendix ESP (Electronic Stability Program) — providing fleets a system that can help drivers in collision, rollover, and loss-of-control situations.
In determining the Product Leadership of the Year Award, Frost & Sullivan measured products against five benchmarks: features and functionality, innovation, acceptance in the marketplace, customer value enhancements, and quality. According to Frost & Sullivan, the Wingman Advanced system combines three safety technologies — electronic stability control, adaptive cruise control with braking, and forward collision mitigation braking and warning — into a single unit.
