Trailer tracking, telematics platform: WABCO builds upon four key pillars

WABCO introduces a connected, intelligent trailer platform

WABCO Holdings Inc. introduced a connected and intelligent trailer platform. The WABCO intelligent trailer platform is built on four key technologies—an Intelligent Anti-Lock Braking System (iABS); trailer Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS); Intelligent Trailer Program (ITP); and TrailerCAST—as well as open software architecture to facilitate cooperation with key industry players.

Introduced in 2019, the WABCO iABS helps optimize trailer control during emergency braking while enabling the activation of ITP features including Lift Axle Control, Door Ajar and Axle Load

WABCO also launched its TrailerCAST trailer telematics device for North America to enhance customer access to critical trailer information. In production globally since 2019, the TrailerCAST device provides GPS and cellular connectivity to iABS and its associated intelligent features. Available with and without battery backup, TrailerCAST is able to provide a GPS location for trailers across North America. Additionally, with its 4G cellular connection, TrailerCAST can transmit critical trailer information to WABCO’s data cloud and fleets can access this information in real-time through Noregon’s TripVision.
