Grote to display expanded 4SEE Smart Trailer System capabilities at ATA MCE

Oct. 12, 2023
Grote's advancements to the 4SEE Smart Trailer System include a wired rear-view camera that enables video from the back of the trailer to be viewed in the cab

Grote will be demonstrating 4SEE Smart Trailer System’s new rear-view camera in partnership with Stoneridge, Inc. at the 2023 ATA Management Conference and Exhibition from Oct. 14 – Oct. 17, 2023, at the Austin Convention Center.

“Innovation is part of our DNA,” said Dominic Grote, CEO and president, “and since safety is a key tenet of our vision, applying that skill to designing a system that improves safety for both fleets and everyone on the road is a natural outcome for us. I’m proud of the work our team does every day to innovate and to live our mission, vision, and values.”

Visitors to the Grote Industries booth (#3025) will be able to interact with the wired rear-view camera that is now in production. This system is the first wired rear-view camera connected through the standard J560 7-way connector to enable video from the back of the trailer directly to a video display in the cab, with virtually no latency, the company stated.

4SEE’s mission is to evolve its trailer electrical wiring and LED lighting systems into a digital network with technological advances focused on enhancing safety in the smart trailer industry. Grote’s 4SEE Smart Trailer System integrates smart technology from our industry’s component and supplier leaders and connects all modules on the trailer via the backward-compatible 4SEE Digital Harness, enabling all nodes to communicate on a single harness system. The 4SEE nose box integrates all component data from the trailer, allowing it to be transmitted directly to the driver, cloud, or third-party telematics provider.

In addition to reefers and dry vans, Grote is also making the benefits of the 4SEE Smart Trailer System available to flatbed trailers.

By continuing to expand the availability, features, and capabilities of the 4SEE system, Grote is working to make the world safer and smarter through connected visibility, the company stated in a release.
