Grote Industries introduces new smart trailer system

Grote Industries announced the development of the 4SEE smart trailer system, a combination of hardware and software that will enable truck fleets to have much more access to data related to their operations and help improve safety on the roadways.

Grote Industries’ 4SEE technology works by connecting the harness, nose box and multiple sensors, creating data points for fleets to utilize. 4SEE hardwires all the components with an innovative digital harness system that connects without grease and has a single connection point–the 4SEE nose box–to cab inputs. This allows a driver or fleet manager to have all outputs in one place. The 4SEE technology has the ability to integrate with existing telematics solutions, so it becomes part of the fleet’s one solution for data needs.

The proximity sensors that are part of the 4SEE system will assist drivers in changing lanes, notifying the driver if a vehicle is in the blind spot of the trailer.

The goal of the 4SEE system is to bring all the independent solutions together into one system,
with a common communication stream, without increasing the harness or hardware required on the trailer. The 4SEE digital harness system also provides modules to connect legacy hardware and digital hardware to the same harness while isolating them to prevent one piece of the system from interfering with any other.

“The digitalization of our trailer system through the use of 4SEE is beneficial for fleet operations but will also make the world safer and more efficient through connected visibility,” said Dominic Grote, CEO, Grote Industries.
