“The new SmartBridge functionality effectively creates the second generation of the system by integrating existing trailer devices with the Road Ready network,” said Rob Richard, vice president and general manager of Road Ready. “The SBI, combined with our best-in-class battery life and sensor options, makes Road Ready the most dynamic, customizable and dependable trailer telematics solution available.”
Several of the industry’s leading and most trusted trailer systems manufacturers have signed on as technical partners, including Continental (tire pressure monitoring), Purkeys (lift gate charging), P.S.I., Hendrickson, and STEMCO (inflation systems). Any fleet currently using these systems can seamlessly incorporate and benefit from Road Ready.
Also new for 2018 is the Road Ready system’s mobile application, which provides step-by step instructions for hardware installation and setup. The installation app also allows users to pair their trailers with the Road Ready user interface, which previously could only be done at a computer.
