About Dan Burrows

Daniel Burrows is the Founder and CEO of TruckLabs, which was founded in 2015 through Daniel's graduate work at Stanford University.

Daniel also believes it’s the area that’s top of mind for their customers and the area that still has the most room for improvement.

  • Dan Burrows is the Founder and CEO of TruckLabs, a trucking technology company with a mission to transform the industry through a series of smart hardware and software product offerings.
  • In the podcast interview, Dan talks about TruckWings, one of Trucklab’s very successful product offerings.
  • TruckWings are a tractor-mounted active aerodynamic device that automatically closes the gap between the cab and the trailer at highway speeds to reduce drag, improve handling, and save fuel. TruckWings require zero driver input to operate.
  • Customer pilots and independent testing have demonstrated real-world fuel savings up to 6% across a wide range of equipment and fleet operations.
  • 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
