The BPW Group has announced that it will introduce a new telematics application at this year's IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hanover. The ECO Tronic TCONTROL has a built-in tyre pressure control system and can be used with all types of vehicles.
Jointly developed by BPW and Munich-based company, idem GmbH, the TCONTROL system allows for automatic locking and monitoring of a trailer refrigeration unit to increase data accessibility and safety during transport. It also features RFID-assisted recognition of both truck and loading area.
According to BPW, the unit will provide reliable real-time information, regardless of the vehicle manufacturer. Alerts can be configured individually and sent via SMS, email or by using a smartphone app.
“Beyond these expanded telematics functionalities, the telematics application also provides access to the world-wide BPW service network. The connection reduces standing times and also increases cost-effectiveness,” said BPW.
