Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC reports that in May, its ESP Electronic Stability Program full-stability system with Automatic Traction Control (ATC) became standard on the majority of Peterbilt Motors Company’s Class 8 trucks and tractors, including the newly announced 579. Additionally, Bendix Wingman Advanced–A Collision Mitigation Technology, is now available as an option on Models 579, 587, 386, 384, 382, 389, 367, and 365.
Since Bendix ESP was introduced in early 2005, Bendix has sold more than 175,000 units.
Peterbilt chose the Bendix ABS-based full-stability system. The system includes automatic traction control and enhances vehicle stability both by reducing engine throttle and applying vehicle braking, based on actual vehicle dynamics and driver input.
