Often, a single fleet will use several different telematics systems. To make sure business owners still only have to use one portal, Schmitz Cargobull has added a generic data import interface for other telematics provider. These interface enable telematics data from diverse trailer telematics systems to be transferred to and displayed in the TrailerConnect portal 2.0. This includes data from the cooling unit, the electronic braking system (EBS) and information from the sensors.
New Schmitz Cargobull apps: Schmitz Cargobull makes monitoring loads and trailers even more efficient and transparent with two new apps. Users are informed in real time via push notifications on their smartphone. Schmitz Cargobull has advanced the TrailerConnect beSmart app especially for drivers. By displaying all key measurement values in the beSmart app, the driver is able to manage up-to-date trailer data at any time. The app connects to the CTU 3 telematics control unit wirelessly which means that the door locking system and cooling unit can also be controlled. An optional temperature printer can also be operated directly from the app.
The new TrailerConnect beUpToDate app is geared towards the needs of fleet managers and scheduling experts. It keeps all telematics portal users informed via smartphone about the current locations of their trailer fleet, downtime and movement data. To do this, Schmitz Cargobull has transferred some functions and views from the TrailerConnect portal 2.0 into the mobile app. One highlight of the beUpToDate app: The position of all or individual trailers is shown in real-time via Google Maps. The app also provides information on the trailers’ current status, such as temperature and cooling unit data, tyre pressures or axle unit loads. The built-in search and filter function ensures that users receive a clear overview.
