What can Trailer Electronic Braking System provide?

By intelligently processing data provided by various trailer sensors, ZF's TEBS determines whether the current vehicle dynamics are unsafe or inefficient and triggers countermeasures by actively warning the vehicle operator and, where possible, directing the actuation of brake and/or suspension controls to bring the vehicle back to the desired safe and efficient state. The system also stores and transmits these events to the driver, workshops and fleet managers.​
