Mack Trucks announced Wednesday at the North American Commercial Vehicle show that the Bendix Wingman Fusion system will be standard on the tractor.

The company unveiled the truck less than two weeks ago.

Bendix Wingman Fusion, a camera- and radar-based driver assistance solution, will be a factory-installed standard on all Anthem models. Fusion provides collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning, assisting drivers in staying safe on the highway. Fusion gathers input through radar, camera and the braking system, enabling multi-system integration and intelligent communication among components.

“All of this is standard to keep our drivers safe and everyone else on the road safe,” says Roy Horton, director of product strategy for Mack Trucks.

Wingman Fusion will be installed at Mack’s Lehigh Valley Operations in Macungie, Penn., where all Mack truck models are assembled. Since 2014, Mack has invested $84 million in this facility for assembly process improvements new IT, and equipment and tooling.
