SkyBitz has launched a new volumetric sensor with high-resolution camera offering remote asset management customers a new option for monitoring trailer capacity within the SkyBitz SmartTrailer ecosystem.

Equipped with a camera that provides what SkyBitz describes as “brilliantly clear images,” the solution provides volumetric calculations for total cubic space as well as total floor space. Images will provide long-term savings to customers and improve their supply chain strategy.

The device can be mounted on a loaded or unloaded trailer, with a full installation of the system in under an hour, the company says. Images of the freight and any volumetric data are captured and viewable through the SkyBitz asset tracking portal, InSight, along with other contextual telematics data. Images can be captured based on the door sensor trigger, either on-demand or via a user-defined parameter through the portal, and are available for use in transport management systems (TMS) from the SkyBitz cloud, or by importing the actual images into the customer’s system.
