Wheel ends are complicated systems and are among the highest friction points on any tractor-trailer, so trucking fleets hear a lot about thermal events at both the wheel and tire. These events are expensive in terms of extra maintenance and downtime, and can cause great harm to equipment, cargo, and even people.
The good news is that in the heavy-duty space, several manufacturers have come to market with wheel-end monitoring technologies—connected via onboard digital hubs to the cloud—that help head off incidents, avoid costly downtime, and identify maintenance errors that can cause wheel- and tire-related problems and failures.
Engineered Transportation International recently teamed up with Drōv Technologies to develop a fleet of fully connected IntelliTank smart trailers.
Industry tips and tricks from the experts for monitoring and utilizing your trailer fleet—and the technology that makes a difference.
Today’s fleets require increased asset visibility, ease of software integration, and the knowledge that their units are operating safely as one.
A calling to improve maintenance and move to the next level
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.
Drōv Technologies, a leader in the smart truck and trailer movement, partners with SKF Vehicle Aftermarket.
Drōv Technologies, a leader in the smart truck and trailer movement, is out to make tank trailers smarter with its AirBoxOne.
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
Using wired and wireless technologies, the AirBoxOne platform relays diagnostics, operational, and safety information to the fleet and driver.
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.
