Headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, WABCO’s TrailerGUARD, a telematics remote diagnostics system used to control the trailer’s separate components, such as its cooling units and electronic brake system modulators, is able to control the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles.
With TrailerGUARD, drivers will always know the condition of their trailer’s parts: Telematic data appears via an application programming interface (API) and vehicle data come visible via the fleet management system.
There are many benefits to installing WABCO’s TrailerGUARD as noted by many customers who have learned valuable information from their trailer’s mode of functioning. TrailerGUARD shows braking, loading and speeding behavior as well as mileage, fuel intake, axle load, suspension, vehicle position, temperature, tire pressure, brake pad wear, and so on.
WABCO is a company that strives to set the transport industry’s standard for vehicle safety and efficiency. It has spread itself across the world with 11,000 employees in 31 countries. For its unique culture of telematic innovations, and for its TrailerGUARD telematics system, it won the Telematik Award 2010, the Trailer Innovation award 2011, and most recently, the 2012 Telematics Award in the category of logistics and cargo – awarded at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2012 tradeshow.
Through the years, and having been honored for several benchmarks in telematics innovations, it has offered customers breakthrough electronic technologies, first of its kind for commercial truck, bus and trailer manufacturers. It has a history of being the first to develop many automated systems for connecting vehicle devices: Innovation ideas such as installing an adaptive cruise control on a commercial vehicle, deploying an autonomous emergency braking system, placing an electronic stability control, using electronically controlled air suspension, developing automated manual transmission and anti-lock braking systems are all examples of leadership roles WABCO have taken since1981.
