Schmitz Cargobull teases new telematics architecture

German OEM Schmitz Cargobull has indicated it will launch a new system architecture for trailer telematics at the upcoming Transport Logistic show in Munich.

According to Schmitz Cargobull, the goal is to create a ‘smart’ trailer capable of collecting and managing data from a range of intelligent components, covering the trailer’s location, trip data and a variety of information regarding cargo transport conditions.

“Big Data has finally reached the trailer world,” the company announced. “As part of this process, all available information on … transport units has to be collected and processed so that it is available for quick and efficient decisions.”

Without providing more detail, the company promised, “You will gain an entirely new perspective on the hidden intelligence inside a trailer.”
