WABCO eTrailer recognised for transport sustainability

Technology company, WABCO, has been recognised with this year's European Transport Award for Sustainability for its eTrailer solution.

WABCO’s industry-leading eTrailer prototype uses an intelligent electric motor control to recuperate electric energy during braking, which can then be reutilised to power the vehicle’s traction or to operate onboard electric auxiliaries.

Thomas Dieckmann, WABCO Technology and Innovation Officer, accepted the award on behalf of WABCO at the award ceremony held 21 November 2019 in Munich.

Last month, WABCO introduced the Intelligent Anti-Lock Braking System (iABS) for commercial trailers at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta, US.
