OKLAHOMA CITY –What is the point of having a smart, technology-based truck if the trailer is still lagging behind?
That was the question that Oklahoma City-based Drōv Technologies asked, leading to the development of a new product that makes a tractor-trailer just as connected and technologically advanced as the truck itself.
With the introduction of this new technology, the company is hoping to revolutionize the trucking industry. Drōv’s AirBoxOne, a comprehensive trailer monitoring system that beams diagnostics to the driver and home office in real time, will be the first monitoring system of its kind on the market.
Going beyond tire pressure monitoring features, AirBoxOne features integrated tire management that inflates and deflates based on load. Additional sensors and cargo cameras detect everything from wheel end temperature and load weight to extreme G-forces and cargo security breaches.
Alerts and notifications are wirelessly communicated to the cab and Cloud, giving truck drivers and the trucking industry freedom from manual checks that are currently the standard in the business.
Now with proof-of-concept wrapping up, Drōv is ready to launch the product into the trucking world.
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.
Wheel-end monitoring can help put a stop to costly thermal events. Here's how the technology works and what maintenance departments should know.
Today’s fleets require increased asset visibility, ease of software integration, and the knowledge that their units are operating safely as one.

Using wired and wireless technologies, the AirBoxOne platform relays diagnostics, operational, and safety information to the fleet and driver.
The benefits of the system include safety and financial ROI. There are fuel efficiency savings that come with standard tire inflation and management.
