Peterson is tapping into trailer data with its new PetersonPulse intelligent trailer system, combining CAN-Bus technology and telematics capabilities.
The system monitors lights, ABS brakes, tire pressure monitoring systems, and cargo temperature – all in real time – issuing alerts via Bluetooth and cellular connections.
Signals from trailer sensors are delivered to the front controller mounted in a nose box, using 6-mm twisted pair communication wires, and all components are sealed and tested against vibrations. Battery backups ensure the monitoring continues when equipment is untethered.
