Phillips Connect is introducing an interior cargo camera, CargoVision, that captures the status of the load in real-time.
According to the company, the 100% solar-powered camera monitors can report the quality of the load—green means safe and red means unsafe—before the doors are open for unloading. With this information, actions can be taken to safeguard against injury.
“Currently available interior trailer cargo cameras tend to be complex and pretty expensive,” said Jim Epler, executive vice president of Phillips Connect. “We took a different approach, developing a very effective, affordable interior cargo camera that our fleet customers can install quickly to monitor their trailer loads for unsafe conditions, or verify the load condition without a large investment in money and time.”
The Phillips Connect CargoVision solution can be installed in as little as 15 minutes. These 1080p cargo images are continuously captured to be delivered on-demand, in a pre-programmed time interval, or driven by a specific event, motion, or door open/closed, via Bluetooth connectivity to the Phillips Connect trailer gateway module.
