Drov Technology is an Oklahoma City-based trucking solutions tech company. Drov is currently developing technology that it hopes will revolutionize the trucking industry by giving drivers and trucking companies real-time measurements on the condition of their trucks and trailers. The company recently picked up more funding from Cortado Ventures for an undisclosed amount. The company plans to use the funds to continue testing its flagship product, the AirBoxOne, in preparation for a commercial launch.
The AirBoxOne is a group of sensors throughout the truck and trailer. The sensors send real-time information on the condition of every part of the unit. According to Drov, the product tracks vehicle health, condition of the brake system, trailer temperature, position of the trailer door and lock status, speed, GPS location, whether trailer lights are working, and tire pressure with the ability to inflate and deflate tires as needed. The technology is designed to alert drivers to problems before they become dangerous or before the problems cause damage or destruction to cargo, thereby resulting in saved time, money and increased efficiency.
According to Nathaniel Harding, Managing Partner of Cortado Ventures, “Drov Technologies has developed a truly transformative control system with state-of-the-art technology that has the potential to make a tremendous impact on the trucking industry – an industry with an annual revenue of nearly $800 billion in the U.S. Innovation begins with disruption, and Drov Technologies will disrupt the trucking industry with its robust, feature-rich smart trailer solution.” With such a large market it’s easy to see why inventors are so excited about Drov and the potential the company has.
Drov Technologies is currently testing its technology on 75 units with one of the larger trucking fleets in the US. The company hopes to quickly scale its production by targeting strategic partnerships as it approaches commercial launch of the AirBoxOne.
Drov Technologies was founded in 2016 by PeteJankowski, who currently serves as the company’s CTO, and Lisa Mullen, CEO.
