WABCO Holdings Inc. Announces OptiLink(TM) Technology

WABCO Holdings Inc. announced OptiLink(TM) technology, the industry's first mobile application that remotely controls and monitors a suite of vehicle safety and efficiency functions on truck-trailer combinations, at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014 in Hanover, Germany. WABCO's new OptiLink technology is the first on the market to provide a single user interface via a mobile device, such as a smartphone, to monitor and control multiple functions on both the truck and trailer. Available in 11 languages, WABCO's new OptiLink application offers easy operator access to 18 functions, providing the industry's widest range of functions for tractor-trailer combinations through a single mobile device. WABCO's new OptiLink mobile application will be one of the features in the WABCO App. It equips drivers with an easy-to-use display of highly visualized information from the vehicles' onboard systems, such as suspension control, lift axle control and brake functions. It also allows users to tailor their OptiLink "dashboard" according to preferences for control and monitoring of vehicle safety, efficiency, performance and comfort. Through OptiLink, WABCO's suite of differentiated vehicle control functions that help to make trucks and trailers safer, easier and more efficient to operate, a range of broad functionalities will be at the user's fingertips. Truck and trailer functions that will be remotely monitored and controlled through OptiLink include: OptiRide(TM) electronically controlled air suspension for trucks and trailers. OptiLevel(TM) with six modules for trailers, including Lift & Lower and Memory Level. OptiLoad(TM) automatically mitigates overload on the truck-trailer's traction axles. OptiTurn(TM) improves trailer maneuverability in roundabouts and around corners. Traction Help increases traction of a truck's rear axle on slippery surfaces.

WABCO Holdings Inc. Expands Electronically Controlled Air Suspension Technology Branded OptiRide

WABCO Holdings Inc. announced that it further expanded its electronically controlled air suspension technology - branded OptiRide(TM) - to the truck market in China. As a result, China National Heavy Truck Corporation (CNHTC), has adopted WABCO's OptiRide in series production on multiple truck platforms across a range of axle configurations. The announcement was made at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014 in Hanover, Germany. WABCO is the first and only supplier of electronically controlled air suspension technology for truck and bus manufacturers in China, the world's largest commercial vehicle market. The company has already equipped around 40,000 buses on Chinese roads with its OptiRide systems. Unlike steel-spring suspension, WABCO's OptiRide enables lifting and lowering of the vehicle, resulting in more efficient cargo handling and operating time savings. It provides automatic load transfer to mitigate axle overload, which helps to reduce vehicle wear-and-tear and other operational costs. With appropriate axle configuration, OptiRide's function for automatic load transfer improves vehicle traction and eases steering. In addition, OptiRide offers an optional function for axle load monitoring that automatically warns the driver in case of overload, which can further lower total cost of vehicle ownership.
