Drov Technologies has commenced offering its AirBoxOne smart trailer solution to Stoughton Trailers that integrates smart components and sensors with the trailer.
By using wired as well as wireless technologies, key information related to operations and safety flows directly from the vehicle to the fleet and also the driver, helping assess diagnostics in real-time, thereby enhancing safety, security, fuel economy, tire life, among others, while reducing the downtime and maintenance cost.
According to Lisa Mullen, managing partner, and CEO of Drov Technologies, they have built the most comprehensible solution for the trailer market for the last four years.
Mullen was speaking at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council Fall Meeting which is held in Cleveland.
Any sensor can be read by AirBoxOne on the trailer and it also facilitates in changing and controlling tire pressure, enabling camera setups on the trailer as well as alerting drivers.
It also monitors tire pressure and inflates or deflates them as per the load. AirBoxOne can also connect to rearview cameras, ultrasonic backup sensors and therefore can detect wheel-end temperature, extreme G-forces, cargo security breaches, load weight, and advanced brake monitoring.
What’s more is that through the health display of the vehicle, web dashboard, in-cab mobile app, and notifications get wirelessly communicated to the cab and get stored in the cloud.
In case of change in conditions, detection is possible because of various sensors that are configured within the platform. As per Mullen, the focus of Drov is to continue innovating and integrating smart technology available in the industry as well as the trailer.
AirBoxOne is an open platform, that can connect to numerous sensors and also integrate with other third-party smart solutions that exist on the trailer.
