XStream Trucking’s TruckWings is an active-aerodynamic device that deploys automatically at highway speeds to cover the tractor-trailer gap and eliminate turbulence caused by movement and high winds, leading to streamlined aerodynamics, fuel saving, lower carbon emissions and smoother rides due to less lane drift. As the gap is needed for low-speed maneuverability, TruckWings’ patented design is devised to work at highway speeds, automatically deploying large panels to cover the sides and top of the gap. The panels, made of high-impact glass-reinforced composites, create a continuous connection between the truck and trailer that allows the air to flow smoothly over the entire length of the truck. When the truck slows down, the panels retract without driver intervention, providing clearance for turns at any angle.
