TransCore introduces new trailer tracking sensors

Truck News

HARRISBURG, Pa. — TransCore, a global manufacturer of transportation-based RFID wireless communication products, has announced its new trailer tracking sensors, including a first-of-its-kind infrared cargo sensor and a temperature sensor.

The cargo sensor is designed to detect the presence or absence of cargo by transmitting infrared light pulses down the length of the trailer. An event trigger is used to notify fleet managers when trailers are loaded and ready for pick-up or unloaded and ready for assignment.

The temperature sensor is designed to allow a refrigerated truck temperature or even the inner skin of a tanker’s temperature to be monitored. High or low temperature settings can be alarmed when settings are exceeded. These alarms are automatically sent by satellite to the fleet operations centre.

“Adding satellite communication technology was an essential element of our strategic vision. The introduction of the additional GlobalWave sensors, and particularly the infrared cargo sensor, marks the beginning of a series of upcoming design innovations in satellite communications,” said TransCore president, John Worthington.
