Tubo – Heavy Trailers

Tubo – Heavy Trailers

EROAD’s Tubo is an electronic distance recorder for heavy trailers, which captures distance, location, route and a variety of additional operational data from the vehicle. The Tubo is installed on the trailer, housed in a purpose-built, highly ruggedised, waterproof enclosure. It records, stores and continuously transmits encrypted data via the cellular network to EROAD’s web-based application, MyEROAD.

The Tubo measures distance travelled with a high degree of accuracy, using a combination of internal and external sensors including the trailer’s speed pulse, GPS satellites and accelerometers.

The Tubo replaces traditional mechanical hubodometers, which are often inaccurate, and are prone to tampering, fraud and damage.
