Smart technology is moving through the entire trucking system, and trailers are no exception.
That will be the subject of the next Spireon webinar, held in conjunction with FreightWaves, on Thursday, August 23 at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Spireon will provide its first look at its breakthrough IntelliScan technology. It’s an advanced detection system that uses optical imaging and laser time of flight technology to provide unprecedented accurate data coming from the trailer on loading/unloading and soft cargo/extreme environment cargo sensing.
Registration for the free one-hour webinar can be found here. The webinar will feature a live demonstration of the IntelliScan product.
The speakers on the webinar will be two executives from Spireon: Roni Taylor, the vice president of strategy and development, and Reza Hemmati, director of product management for fleet and asset intelligence. Taylor has more than 25 years in the industry, and Hemmati was integral to the development of the Intelliscan cargo sensor.
Spireon and FreightWaves hope to see you there.
