WABCO to launch TX-TRAILERPULSE remote diagnostics for road trailers

In a release issued in Bern, Switzerland and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, braking control systems and other advanced technologies provider WABCO has announced that it will launch a new advanced trailer monitoring and remote diagnostics solution, TX-TRAILERPULSE, in June. The launch customer is Dom d’Azur in France

WABCO’s TX-TRAILERPULSE is a trailer-focused Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity solution that combines real-time track and trace functionality with additional remote trailer health and diagnostic information. The solution is the first of its kind, claims WABCO, combining both trailer tracking and advanced remote diagnostic in one solution at a price level which allows fleet-wide deployment across all trailer types.

Complementing WABCO’s other fleet management solutions, the system can be installed as an OEM fitment or as a retrofit option for fleets. The solution enables fleet operators, as well as trailer leasing and rental companies, to better track, maintain and manage their assets, wherever these may be.

“An incredible 70% of today’s operational trailers in Europe are not equipped with any form of connectivity solution,” said Philippe Colpron, WABCO Vice President and Fleet Solutions Global Business Leader. “TX-TRAILERPULSE offers a cost-effective way to optimally track and manage trailers and is agnostic to the trailer type, enabling fleets with mixed cargo to apply the technology.

“We are achieving this by building on the strength of IoT and the power of cloud connectivity, enabling our customers to better optimize vehicle maintenance schedules and increase fleet operational productivity."


Directly connected to the trailer electronic braking system (TEBS), the solution captures and processes TEBS and trailer diagnostics data via the web-based TX-TRAILERFIT portal, which assesses the technical health of the trailer and can provide, for example, root cause indication and repair hints.

 

Additionally, users can monitor the TEBS’ use over a trailer’s lifetime and check critical TEBS events. Health and diagnostics insights can be shared easily and securely with workshops and service partners building a digitally connected repair and maintenance chain, creating a direct positive impact on the total uptime of fleet vehicles.

Vehicles already equipped with WABCO’s advanced TX-SKY fleet management solution can integrate TX-TRAILERPULSE into their existing back-office platform, enabled by advanced IoT and cloud computing technologies.


WABCO has already secured its first customer, ahead of the product’s commercial launch in June. French transport company Dom d’Azur, which specializes in heavy duty transport with a focus on the transportation of exceptional loads, will equip its fleet with WABCO’s new digital system.

“There is currently no comparable solution on the market,” said Bertrand Vivier, CEO at Dom’Azur. “We expect the rich functionalities of TX-TRAILERPULSE to optimize the use of our trailers and also our trailer maintenance flow. This will help us to maximize our fleet’s uptime significantly.”
