Wabco Holding announced that it has added three functions to its TrailerGuard system designed to allow fleet managers to remotely identify trailers that require service through the portal’s display of warning lamps indicating any errors in the trailer’s electronic breaking system.

EBS error warnings are designed to allow rapid intervention, either remote or onsite, to facilitate compliance with road regulations. Operators also can monitor an individual’s driving behavior to confirm compliance with the fleet’s safety policy through the portal’s display of near-rollover alerts and by downloading EBS operating data.

TrailerGuard’s new functions include EBS Advanced, designed to track EBS warning lamps in the vehicle’s cabin; Roll Stability Support (RSS), which shows when and how many times RSS has been required to stabilize the vehicle against rollover; and Operating Data Recorder, which allows analysis of the driver’s performance as well as the trailer’s utilization.

TrailerGuard also alerts fleet operators to any critical situations, enabling appropriate and timely action such as sending an alarm via text message (SMS) to the driver. TrailerGuard is available for all types of trailers in Europe and can be customized for specific needs. All data can be implemented into the customer’s information technology system to further improve trailer management efficiency.
