Technology: Lytx adds new capabilities to Vision Platform
Clarience Technologies and Wabash have launched a new technology alliance focused on trailer applications, including new advanced connectivity applications that will be essential as electric and autonomous vehicles come to market. As a first step, Road Ready advanced trailer telematics systems will become standard equipment on all Wabash dealer stock trailers.
Michigan-based Clarience Technologies is the parent company to Truck-Lite, the North American leader in LED lighting solutions for commercial transportation, as well as Road Ready advanced telematics, ECCO Safety Systems, DAVCO filtration solutions and several other technology brands.
As part of this agreement, Road Ready advanced telematics hardware will be installed on all Wabash dealer stock units with customers receiving a 90-day trial subscription for Road Ready trailer telematics activated upon delivery.
Road Ready offers asset tracking capabilities for fleets at a variety of levels. Map View delivers simplified and detailed map views powered by Google Maps technology, while Asset/Trailer View allows customers to drill down to view an exact breadcrumb trail of one particular asset throughout its trip. Fleets can customize how often each fleet asset communicates its location status. Fleets can also set up custom landmarks to create geofences for established routes, triggering alerts to help fleets protect their assets and their customer’s cargo.
Road Ready’s LogIQ smart partners include eleven of the leading names in transportation technology, including:
- Right Weigh, Inc.
- ConMet Digital
- SAF Holland
- Hyundai Translead
Fleets can access Road Ready through its FleetViz fleet management platform, a user-friendly platform that makes fleet data easy to understand and act upon. FleetViz is also mobile optimized so customers can access data virtually anywhere.
Connectivity Enables Electric, Autonomous Technologies
Road Ready introduced two new features: cloud-based API integration to enable customers to view truck and trailer data in one single interface, and Virtual Tether to create a V2V data link between truck and trailer which enables communication to drivers regarding trailer health conditions.
