Fresh move to measure axle load - wireless position sensor

13 August, 2019
Wireless position sensor for axle load monitoring

New position sensor is a battery powered wireless telematics sensor, designed to measure axle load (cargo weight) on vehicles with a spring suspension.

Wireless position sensor is integrated into a fleet monitoring system and transmits data over Bluetooth radio channel. Now, when we discuss wireless telematics, we are talking about connectivity of telematics sensors with a range of other connected devices, including smartphones and wearables.

Wireless axle load sensor allows monitoring data by a driver from a smartphone and at the same time data may be received by a telematics gateway to transmit it further to a fleet management platform.

Sensor calibration, self-diagnostics, events detection, industrial grade components, high level of environment protection – just some of the advanced features Technoton Engineering is able to offer through the wireless telematics development projects.
