Mack’s collision mitigation system helps to keep truckers safe
“Conditions on the road are anything but easy. Weather events, rough roads, dust storms and even insects can make running down the road less than ideal for a driver. But what about a high-tech collision mitigation system with cameras and various sensors? According to Roy Horton, Mack Truck’s director of product strategy, Bendix Wingman Fusion has been holding up fine.
“The fact that the Bendix Wingman Fusion system uses two sensors, the radar sensor in the bumper and the camera in the windshield, enables the system to operate in a variety of weather conditions, since it does not rely on data from one source, but is able to look at input from both sources to control the system,” Horton said.
Wingman Fusion is calibrated at the factory, so there’s no need for an adjustment unless a component is damaged. For instance, the system’s camera is mounted to the windshield and in case the windshield has to be replaced, dealers are provided with calibration instructions.”

The emerging technology surrounding ADAS has now evolved to the point where it’s integrated into fleet vehicles. While it’s benefits are many, it’s important that it’s calibrated correctly. The most common cause necessitating recalibration is due to windshield damage. Since these cameras are precisely mounted, even the slightest misalignment may cause a problem.
