Predictive Maintenance

Downtimes increase operating costs for fleet operators - ZF's predictive maintenance function adjusts maintenance intervals to actual use, thus avoiding unnecessary costs.
With predictive maintenance, the suitable vehicle is automatically selected for new transport orders. The maintenance history and the condition of the vehicle play a decisive role here. If the new order involves a transport distance of 5,000 kilometers, for example, a vehicle is selected that requires neither oil changes nor maintenance within this distance.

ZF's predictive maintenance function does not check the condition of the vehicles on the basis of mileage and maintenance intervals. The system constantly monitors the transmission oil as well as the clutch disc. In this way, it can make forecasts about a due transmission oil change as well as for the remaining service life of the clutch disc. The truck's suitability for the upcoming transport job depends on this.

If, for example, the clutch disc has a remaining service life of 3,000 kilometers, a transport order of 5,000 kilometers can result in an acute risk of breakdown. In this case, the ZF predictive maintenance system arranges a service appointment and places the order with another vehicle.
Maintenance intervals are calculated in the ZF cloud in real time on the basis of actual usage data. Fleets benefit from longer service intervalls and less downtime - and a reduction in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Asset Tracking

1. With the asset tracking solution from OPENMATICS, shipments can be tracked at any time during delivery. Bluetooth Smart TAGs are on the shipment around the clock. They constantly transmit data regarding location, condition of the goods and compliance with the refrigeration chain.

2. With the asset tracking solution from OPENMATICS, carriers can keep an eye on the freight process at all times via the web portal and the app. This enables them to react at an early stage if necessary and to provide complete documentation for their quality control.

3. With the telematics solution from OPENMATICS, carriers can network their vehicles. This enables safe and intelligent operation and keeps the vehicles in top condition.

Asset Tracking

Platooning

1. Platooning improves the flow of traffic and reduces the number of accidents. It also reduces fuel consumption as well as emissions pollutants.

2. When driving in a convoy, the vehicles connect. The rear truck closes the gap between the vehicle ahead and keeps the distance constant.

3. Thanks to the short distance, more than just the air resistance on the vehicle following is reduced. Also, turbulence at the rear of the leading vehicle is reduced. Both vehicles thus benefit from the platoon and can reduce their fuel consumption.

4. The platoon behaves like a single vehicle with the first truck determining the speed. Through communication between the vehicles, the acceleration and braking signals are reliably transmitted to the following truck.

5. The control systems of the rear truck react faster than any human being can and implement the driving maneuvers of the lead vehicle in a coordinated manner. Platooning therefore makes a decisive contribution to road safety.
