Mobile Awareness adds trailer exchange to TPMS

Posted on February 6, 2014

Transportation safety products provider Mobile Awareness LLC announced its first TPMS software upgrade, the addition of a touch screen truck and trailer exchange capability.

Purchasers of the company’s MobileTRAQ monitors can download the upgrade for free. New shipped units will be sent with the software included.

This feature allows a driver to select from a drop-down list of trailer assets to automatically exchange virtual trailers and their corresponding tire sensors when physically switching trailers in the yard.

This feature, the first of many that allows fleets and drivers to get a longer life out of their hardware purchase, makes it as easy as touching the monitor to change trailers from a list of those mounted with sensors, notes Mobile Awareness. The system automatically disconnects the old trailer and its sensors and starts recording and reporting the new trailer's sensors.
