CLEVELAND, Ohio—Over the last four years, Drōv Technologies has been working on integrating “smart” components and sensors into the commercial trailer through it’s AirBoxOne platform. Now, the technology provider has just announced a partnership with Stoughton Trailers during the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council’s 2021 Fall Meeting.
“We saw on the truck side there was so much innovation and so much consideration for technology. What we noticed was that very little of that was happening on the trailer side,” noted Lisa Mullen, Drōv CEO, during a TMC press conference.
“Without making the trailer safer today for the driver, there was little chance that autonomous transportation would be successful,” she added.
According to Drōv CTO Pete Jankowski, AirBoxOne can read any sensor on the trailer; check, change, and control tire pressure electronically; monitor wheel ends, the vibration of the hubs, and temperature; track the weight of the vehicle through the axles; and read ABS faults. The platform also connects to cargo and rearview cameras, ultrasonic backup sensors, and additional sensor integrations to detect wheel-end temperature and load weight to extreme G-forces and cargo security breaches.
Extraordinary intelligence - Drov Technologies' innovative AirBoxOne connectivity turns tank trailers into smarter, safer, more efficient vehicles.
Drov Technologies offers multiple wheel sensors that integrate on its AirboxOne telematics solution for trailers.
“The trailer has been the forgotten asset in the telematics world until recently,” says Lisa Mullen, CEO, Drōv Technologies.

It was a little over two years ago when we wrote the days of calling dry van trailers “boxes with wheels” were numbered. After last month’s Technology & Maintenance Counc
With the introduction of this new technology, the company is hoping to revolutionize the trucking industry.
The benefits of the system include safety and financial ROI. There are fuel efficiency savings that come with standard tire inflation and management.
