In response to a number of rollovers on Canadian highways this summer, Bendix Commercial Vehicles LLC and Volvo Trucks Canada will team up to demonstrate advanced commercial vehicle safety technologies in an attempt to limit rollovers and loss of control.
The companies will showcase safety innovations during a live event October 29-31 in Waterloo, ON. Featured will be the Bendix ESP Electric Stability Program, branded by Volvo as Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology (VEST). A demonstration will show the differences in stability and safety of vehicles with and without stability systems..
"This event is part of an ongoing series taking place across North America to showcase this vital safety technology. The demonstration reinforces our efforts to increase awareness and educate fleets, drivers, and industry leaders about the value of available safety systems such as electronic stability control. Experiencing the technology firsthand is the best way to realize its significance," said Fred Andersky, Bendix marketing manager for electronics. "Bendix and Volvo each have a history of commitment to highway safety, and we will continue to work to deliver the critical safety technologies that will help prevent accidents on our highways."
