IMPROVE YOUR FUEL ECONOMY BY 4%

TruckWings™ works by automatically deploying panels from the back of the cab to cover the tractor-trailer gap when a truck is at highway speeds. The panels automatically retract at slow speeds, allowing for trailer clearance in turns.

Message from the CEO

“Trucks need the gap to turn, but they need to turn less than 1% of the time. The other 99% of the time, the gap is simply wasting fuel.

TruckWings™ automatically closes the gap when it’s not needed, improving your fleet’s bottom line.

Your truck becomes more like a bullet train on the highway, without any driver actions, changes to the trailer, or compromises on the turning circles.”

– Daniel Burrows, CEO

INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED RESULTS

  • Computer Modeling
    Initial validation of the reduction in drag and fuel savings was done using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and showed that the opportunity at the gap merited further consideration.
  • Wind tunnel
    At the Automotive Research Center (ARC) wind tunnel, careful testing with a rolling floor showed TruckWings provided even higher savings under heavy crosswinds.
  • Track Testing
    Extensive track testing at two different tracks confirmed we could reproduce the savings seen from the wind tunnel in controlled conditions.
  • On Highway
    Final confirmation of savings was achieved by completing on-highway fuel tests using weighted fuel tanks. Testing was conducted by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency.
