Truck-Lite releases Road Ready system product

Truck-Lite Co. has released product for its Road Ready trailer monitoring and communication system. The Road Ready system creates a “smart” trailer with its solar-powered Master Control Unit (MCU). With its military-grade solar panel and 10-year, quick-charging battery, the MCU continually monitors and transmits crucial data from customizable Road Ready sensors to its user interface without requiring power from a tractor.

The Road Ready system offers a variety of wireless, peel-and-stick sensors that communicate with the MCU, relaying data regarding tire pressure; LED light-out detection; anti-lock brake systems; unauthorized door openings; cargo fill/movement detection; cargo temperature; trailer arrival and departure notifications; and GPS with different MCU reporting capabilities (geofencing, motion sensing, panic or scheduled reporting and Hypertracking). Event-based data is reported in real time to a desktop dashboard from a completely untethered control unit.

The Road Ready system can also speed up the pre-trip inspection process by communicating data points to the dashboard, even when a trailer is sitting in a yard. As a result, fleets can confidently dispatch trailers they know to be free of issues, ensuring driver safety and more uptime while avoiding costly CSA violations, according to the company.
