Trailer Electronic Braking System (TEBS)

WABCO was the first to deliver electronic braking to the trailer market in 1997. It is now the global market leader for Trailer Electronic Braking System (TEBS) with more than 2.5 million units in the market. TEBS (Version E) provides the most comprehensive portfolio of safety and efficiency functions for trailers.


What does Trailer EBS do?

By intelligently processing data provided by various trailer sensors, WABCO's TEBS determines whether the current vehicle dynamics are unsafe or inefficient and triggers countermeasures by actively warning the vehicle operator and, where possible, directing the actuation of brake and/or suspension controls to bring the vehicle back to the desired safe and efficient state. The system also stores these events and transmits them to the driver via displays and warning indicators, to the workshops via diagnostics interfaces and to fleet managers through telematics.
