FALCONER, N.Y. (August 21, 2017) --- Truck-Lite Co., LLC, a worldwide leader in heavy-duty lighting, mirror, wire harness, telematics and visibility systems, has released product for the new Road Ready trailer monitoring and communication system - the most complete trailer telematics network in the industry.


The Road Ready system creates the industry's first true "smart" trailer with its solar-poweredMaster Control Unit (MCU). With its military-grade solar panel and 10-year, quick-charging battery,the MCU continually monitors and transmits crucial data from customizable Road Ready sensors toan intuitive user interface - all without requiring power from a tractor.




"What sets Road Ready apart from any other system is its ability to monitor all trailer componentswhile being untethered," said Rob Richard, vice president and general manager of Road Ready."Installation is quick, with no holes to drill or wires to run, and fleets can determine whether a traileris ready for dispatch without needing to hook it to a power unit - saving valuable time and,ultimately, money."


The Road Ready system offers a variety of wireless, peel-and-stick sensors that communicate withthe MCU, relaying data regarding tire pressure; LED light-out detection; anti-lock brake systems;unauthorized door openings; cargo fill/movement detection; cargo temperature; trailer arrival anddeparture notifications; and GPS with different MCU reporting capabilities (geofencing, motionsensing, panic or scheduled reporting and Hypertracking™). Unlike other telematics systems,event-based data is reported in real time to a convenient, user-friendly desktop dashboard from acompletely untethered control unit. And, with more sensors than any other option available, theRoad Ready system can be customized for any fleet solution - even those with alternative trailer

monitoring and LED lighting platforms in place.


"Road Ready is completely agnostic, which means it communicates with existing ABS, tire and LEDlighting systems a fleet might already employ," said Brian Kupchella, president and CEO of Truck-Lite. "Between its variety of sensors and network of compatible platforms, Road Ready is the mostcomprehensive telematics solution available."


In addition to reporting up-to-the-minute alerts from crucial areas of road-readiness, the RoadReady system maximizes an organization's efficiency by expediting the pre-trip inspection process- something even the best drivers don't always complete. Road Ready communicates key datapoints to the dashboard, even when a trailer is sitting in a yard. As a result, fleets can confidentlydispatch trailers they know to be free of issues, ensuring driver safety and more uptime whileavoiding costly CSA violations.


"Regardless of the size of the fleet or the industry it serves, Road Ready places key information at afleet's fingertips," Richard said. "The combination of long-life sensors and the intuitive Road Readydashboard helps any fleet make better business decisions."


Truck-Lite's Road Ready system is a solar-powered, wireless, multi-functional monitoring solutionand is easily customizable for any fleet requirement. For more information,
