The intelligent trailer aims to enhance trailer safety, security and efficiency; and offers significant added value for India's trailer manufacturers, fleet operators and cargo owners.

The intelligent trailer paves the way for India's trailer industry to upgrade from basic braking systems to the next level of advanced braking and suspension technologies required for higher levels of vehicle automation. The advanced Trailer Electronic Braking System (T-EBS) optimises stopping distances and controls trailer brake and suspension functions. The system also enables the trailer to connect drivers, fleets and cargo owners to rich sources of onboard systems and operational information.
