IC Bus makes ESC Standard!
IC Bus, the leading school bus manufacturer and subsidiary of Navistar, has made
electronic stability control (ESC) and collision mitigation technology standard on its
CE Series and RE Series school buses with air brakes, making IC Bus the first original equipment maker (OEM) to offer these features as standard on school buses.
A few weeks ago, the Today Show reached out to IC Bus about doing a feature on the new safety technology that they now offer as standard on all school bus models - electronic stability control and collision mitigation. Check out this feature by Jeff Rossen that aired on the Today Show! Also, a special thanks to Bendix, for supplying this technology and working with IC on the demo!

comes with 2 blades and module
Crystal clear automatic heated wiper blades* are the world’s first automatic heated wiper blades. Easy-to-use with no switches required, the complete system turns on by detecting when the vehicle is running and when it is cold outside. The wiper blades quickly heat up to 150ºF, preventing snow and ice from building up on the surface of the blade, thus providing you with a clear view. The heated blades are also more pliable (soft) when it is cold out, which means it completely cleans your windshield when activated.

Frequent need for stationary regeneration or excessive regeneration in low duty cycle or stop/go applications, such as refuse truck, feedlot truck, school bus, shuttle/transit bus, delivery truck, yard spotter, mixer, utility truck and so forth.

Root Cause:
With the Aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter Temperature Stabilization feature disabled, active regeneration of the aftertreatment diesel particulate filter (DPF) is inhibited until the vehicle reaches 40 mph. Active regeneration will abort when the vehicle speed falls below the Automotive Mobile Regeneration Minimum Vehicle Speed threshold. Active regeneration will remain inhibited until the vehicle reaches 40 mph again.

• The Aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter Temperature Stabilization feature has been released to improve the ability for low duty cycle and stop/go applications to actively regenerate the aftertreatment DPF during normal operation.
• The Aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter Treatment Stabilization feature is a user-selectable feature in INSITE™ electronic service tool.
• When enabled, the Aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter Temperature Stabilization feature will change the start of regeneration threshold to be 0.6 mph above the Automotive Mobile Regeneration Minimum Vehicle Speed threshold versus the 40 mph standard start of regeneration threshold. The Aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter Temperature Stabilization feature also allows the system to inject low amounts of fuel to keep the aftertreatment DPF warm when the vehicle speed drops below the Minimum Vehicle Speed threshold. This prevents the regeneration from aborting and allows the regeneration to continue once the vehicle speed exceeds the Minimum Vehicle Speed threshold.
• If Automotive Mobile Regeneration Minimum Vehicle Speed is set to 0 mph, active regeneration is not inhibited due to vehicle speed and the use of the Aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter Temperature Stabilization feature is unnecessary.
