Trimble will be showcasing its next generation CarCube on-board computer at the International Truck, Trailer and Equipment Show held May 5-7 in Melbourne, Australia (stand GP35A). The new CarCube now features a slim, high-resolution and responsive touch-screen with a more powerful processor. As well as offering a 3D map view for navigation, the system now shows drivers precisely where they can change lanes to optimise efficiency. Another new feature is the option of using the CarCube to manage documents such as manuals or safety instructions. To further reduce installation times, Trimble has also modified the dimensions of the CarCube on-board computer to bring it in line with the DIN slot format.
"Now in its sixth generation, the development focus for the CarCube on-board computer was user-friendliness and safety," said Steven Reynolds, Country Manager Australia with Trimble Transport & Logistics. This latest generation offers improved navigation, including specific safety information and alerts for drivers such as insufficient clearance under bridges or tight bends. The navigation system remains active even when the truck drives through a tunnel. Another new feature is an option allowing drivers to manage documents such as manuals, safety instructions or driver guides on the new CarCube. This supports video as well as Word and PDF files.
The new DIN slot format enables even faster installation of the on-board computer. "A fixed installation of the CarCube will continue to be part of our hardware concept in the future. However, we have focused on shorter installation times and easier operation with the new DIN slot format," said Steven Reynolds, Country Manager Australia.
Trimble's stand will also showcase the mobile FleetXPS app, a native Android application, concentrating on the interaction with the driver when dealing with logistical activities. Also the Truck4U, a DIN format on-board unit permanently built into the truck but without a display, will be demonstrated. Truck4U performs classic fleet management tasks.
