During the American Trucking Association's Management Conference & Exhibition, Spireon announced it has expanded it trailer management solution to offer faster installation options and wireless sensor capabilities, as well as add volumetric capabilities to the IntelliScan cargo sensor.
Spireon introduced the next generation of its FL Flex suite of products and IntelliScan cargo sensor under its FleetLocate product line.
The updated line of Flex devices provides ultimate flexibility with options that are faster to install with more power options, are wireless sensor-capable, and have an integrated cargo sensor. The enhanced IntelliScan cargo sensor adds volumetric capabilities to provide actionable information on available trailer floor space.
The new Flex suite includes a covert option available with wireless sensors, and new options for an integrated solar panel and IntelliScan cargo sensor. Flex products can be paired with various wired and wireless sensor options including door sensor, PSI automatic tire inflation system, PSI tire pressure monitoring system, and temperature probe.
This latest generation of trailer management devices works on all types of trailers and has options that can be installed in as little as 10 minutes on empty or loaded trailers, making customization easier and faster than before, Spireon officials said in a press release.
Built on Spireon's IntelliScan sensing technology, the new volumetric-capable sensor enables trailer managers to see not only if the trailer is loaded or unloaded with 99% accuracy, but what percent of trailer floor space is still available for loading. It uses optical recognition and artificial intelligence technology to provide operations managers with a more precise picture of what's inside every trailer. This enables better optimization of trailer floor space, increases backhaul opportunities, and improves trailer utilization, company officials said.
The next generation IntelliScan is mounted in the rear of the trailer allowing maximum visibility to the interior when loaded nose to rear providing images of an entire 53-foot trailer.
