New scheduling technology from Maxoptra

Stand 5J126
Maxoptra will bring its latest cloud-based, real-time delivery scheduling technology to the CV Show.
The company will be demonstrating software for managing transport operations that require real-time scheduling and accurate, continually updated, estimated arrival times. Maxoptra is designed for transport operations that are beyond the scope of traditional routing and scheduling systems, and in particular manages operations that require complete flexibility to respond to changing needs in real-time. It is part of a comprehensive web-based software solution that incorporates job despatching, telematics integration, mobile messaging, with live estimated time of arrival (ETA) and point of delivery reporting.
Maxoptra can handle diverse transport needs, for example, where vehicle fleets require both pre-planning and then re-scheduling once vehicles have departed, to respond to changing delivery and collection requirements.
The real-time routing and scheduling can be performed on individual vehicles or entire fleets, which can be instantly re-scheduled, creating a new delivery plan to make the best use of every driver and vehicle.
The software enables a move from purely pre-planned to partially or fully real-time operations, but also offers a host of features such as job despatch direct to drivers, in-cab navigation and messaging and live ETA updating for customers. Being entirely cloud-based, Maxoptra is available from any Internet-connected device.

Fair wear and tear guide from BVRLA

The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) will be using the Show to launch the latest version of its Fair Wear and Tear guide for operators and drivers of contract hire and leased vehicles over 3.5 tonnes GVW.

For 2016, the publication has been simplified and aligned with BVRLA’s Fair Wear and Tear guide for drivers of leased light commercial vehicles.
As well as the new guide, the BVRLA will also have copies of its new Commercial Vehicle Code of Conduct available, while members of BVRLA staff will be on hand to answer any questions from operators and hire companies.

Voith Turbo shows heavy truck technology

Stand 3H96
Voith Turbo, a leading European bus transmissions specialist, will display its unique technology for heavy trucks at the Show.
Voith’s VIAB, also known as the Turbo Retarder Clutch (TRC), played a key part in clinching the Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year Award 2015 for Mercedes-Benz at the inaugural “The Heavies” event – an awards ceremony specifically designed to recognise excellence within the heavy haulage and abnormal load movement industry.
The judges described the VIAB, fitted to the Mercedes-Benz Arocs SLT, as a true game-changer.
The Voith component is a completely new powerful start-up and braking system and is a standard fit on both Mercedes-Benz Arocs and Actros SLT tractors over 120 tonnes.
The VIAB provides powerful start-up and safe braking with no wear on loads up to 250 tonnes.

“It eliminates stress and tension behind the wheel when dealing with sensitive start-up and braking behaviour,” said John Domigan, Voith Turbo’s UK sales and marketing manager.
“The VIAB combines the advantages of hydrodynamics with the high efficiencies of mechanical driveline and features a powerful primary retarder.”
The component was developed with Mercedes-Benz and took several years to refine the mechanical, electronic, and software elements to make it class-leading.

Sigmavision launches 3D tyre scanner

Stand 4E59
The world’s first 3D handheld tyre measurement scanner will be the main feature of Sigmavision’s stand at the Show.
The TreadReader handheld scanner is a compact and lightweight device. It is quick and easy to use and eliminates the errors associated with manual depth gauges. The scanner is positioned on one edge of a tyre and operated by sliding it across the tread face.
Accurate tread depth readings for tyres of all vehicle types, from LCVs to HGV, buses, trailers and passenger cars, can reveal badly worn or unevenly worn tyres symptomatic of problems such as wheel misalignment or worn suspension.
Colour-coded 3D scans enable tyre replacement at the best time to maximise tyre safety and present revenue opportunities to the trade from increased tyre sales or service hours.
TreadReader is suitable for wet or dirty tyres and is ideal for all tyre inspection applications such as workshops, service centres, inspection lanes, commercial vehicle yards and at the roadside.
The calculated data can be imported into any fleet management system to log tyre scans and produce wear analysis or tyre lifetime modelling.
Based in the UK, Sigmavision is a high tech company, with world class expertise in laser sensor and camera imaging technology.
Sigmavision is also working with leading industry partners to educate private motorists and business drivers about correct tyre maintenance and the need to reduce the number of road traffic accidents occurring as a result of faulty tyres

Four in a row for VWS

Stand 5C108
British-based weighing technology experts, Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS), will be returning to the Show for the fourth year running to launch an innovative vehicle tow hitch weighing device and demonstrate their existing range of market leading products.
VWS will be demonstrating its latest development, the Tow Hitch Safety Loading System, with neighbouring exhibitor Hope Technical Developments.
The companies have joined together to create an all-in-one van and tow overloading protection system. It uses the same in-cab indicator display so drivers can access both sets of weight data easily. The data can either be stored or exported to most telemetry systems. A VWS Ford Transit demonstration van fitted with VWS’ vehicle overload protection system VOPS2, the Tow Hitch system, and standing on one of VWS APOLLO weigh pads, will be stationed between both stands.
Julian Glasspole, VWS Managing Director, said: “There are serious health and safety issues with tow hooks being overloaded, forcing the rear axle down and pushing the front wheels up, which seriously impairs braking ability. There are also issues when there is too little weight on the hook, making the rear axle lift and causing vehicles to jackknife. Our combined system means that drivers can check if a hook has been loaded correctly and at the same time check that the vehicle isn’t overloaded.”
Also featuring on the VWS stand this year is the VWS PurGo, a software package designed specifically for waste and recycling operators to help streamline their operations, pinpoint heavy bins and identify missed revenue.
It works in harmony with bin-weighing systems, vehicle CCTV and telematics, and is a paperless system that uses handheld PDA’s with built in Sat Nav to assist drivers and enable geographical tracking of every vehicle and container.
