Knorr-Bremse, the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems and supplier of other
sub-systems for commercial vehicles, is adding TruckServices ProFleet Connect to its
range of Lifetime-Efficiency-Services for the aftermarket. This brand-independent retrofit
telematics system is made up of seven separate functional modules that help vehicle operators increase the safety and efficiency of their trucks, trailers or buses. At the transport
logistic fair, Knorr-Bremse is demonstrating the benefits this brings in practice.
“Our aim is to offer the best possible service solution for every commercial vehicle, regardless of type, make or age,” says Dr. Peter Laier, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG responsible for the Commercial Vehicle Systems division. “Together with our partner Microlise, with TruckServices ProFleet Connect we’re offering our customers smart fleet management services for retrofit. Customers stand to benefit from flexible support with their scheduling, operational safety, quality assurance and driver training, regardless of the brand of vehicles they operate.”
At the core of the system is the Tracking Unit that is connected up to the vehicle’s data interface and transmits the required vehicle data. Then there is the ProFleet Connect software, which is called up via a web browser and provides access to the required functionalities.
Customers who also want a new platform for data exchange with their drivers can opt for
the DriveTab. This robust tablet PC with its user-friendly mobile app not only handles all
communications between driver and dispatcher, it also provides the basis for driver coaching.
Here, ProFleet Connect continuously analyzes the dynamic handling of the vehicle and
provides the driver with visual or audio hints on how to boost safety and save fuel.
