IC Bus featured some of the new safety technology that is now standard on all of its school buses — electronic stability control and collision mitigation — on the "Today" show on Thursday.

IC Bus and braking supplier Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems worked together on the demonstration, according to an IC Bus Facebook post, which is shown below.
