Road transport is a highly competitive business; caution must be used when considering capital expenditure or any ongoing liability. However, consider the reduction in downtime across a fleet of trailers if they could avoid the need to be Roller Brake Tested, (a test considered by many to be flawed).
We have developed Electronic Brake Performance Monitoring (EBPM) in response to specific guidelines introduced by the DVSA in 2014. EBPM reduces the burden associated with frequent laden Roller Brake Testing.
Our system has been validated by Dr. Colin Ross, a well known commercial vehicle braking expert. EBPMS has been included in the ‘Guide to Roadworthiness’, details can be read here. This has already been adopted by one of the top five UK Transport operators.
