CarCube for transport and logistics

The CarCube on-board computer is now available in DIN slot format with a responsive touch-screen with 3D navigation.

Trimble is introducing its next generation CarCube on-board computer. The new unit features a slim, high-resolution and responsive touch-screen with a more powerful processor. As well as featuring a 3D map view for navigation, the system is said to show drivers precisely where they can change lanes to optimise efficiency.

Another new feature is the option of using the CarCube to manage documents such as manuals or safety instructions. To further reduce installation times, Trimble has also modified the dimensions of the CarCube on-board computer to bring it in line with the DIN slot format.

“Now in its sixth generation, the development focus for the CarCube on-board computer was user-friendliness and safety,” said Steven Reynolds, country manager Australia with Trimble Transport & Logistics.

This generation offers improved navigation, including specific safety information and alerts for drivers such as insufficient clearance under bridges or tight bends. The navigation system remains active even when the truck drives through a tunnel.

Another new feature is an option allowing drivers to manage documents such as manuals, safety instructions or driver guides on the new CarCube. This supports video as well as Word and PDF files.

The DIN slot format enables even faster installation of the on-board computer. “A fixed installation of the CarCube will continue to be part of our hardware concept in the future. However, we have focused on shorter installation times and easier operation with the new DIN slot format,” said Mr Reynolds.
