Continental‘s ContiPressureCheck tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is now integrated into Truck-Lite’s Road Ready trailer telematics system.
Truck-Lite says the Road Ready system creates the industry’s first true “smart” trailer by continually monitoring and transmitting crucial data to an intuitive user interface. By using ContiPressureCheck with Road Ready trailer telematics, fleets can improve safety, reduce roadside service calls, extend tire life, reduce tire maintenance costs, and avoid CSA violations, ensuring they can safely deliver payloads on time to their destination, the company says.
Road Ready’s SmartBridge Integrator, unveiled at the ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council’s (TMC) annual meeting last year, now broadcasts data from Continental’s ContiPressureCheck TPMS to the cloud, where it can be seen on the intuitive Road Ready user interface. This allows seamless integration of tire pressure and temperature data into the trailer telematics dashboard. Fleets can now experience full visibility into their trailer operations, including vital tire data.
“By giving fleets the ability to view real-time pressure and temperature data for all their trailer tires, the ContiPressureCheck integration with Road Ready guarantees better control of your trailer tires. That control translates into reduced tire costs and improved safety,” says Paul Williams, Continental’s executive vice president of commercial vehicle tires in the Americas region.
“As a leading technology company, we are leveraging more than 100 years of tire manufacturing expertise and combining that with the latest digital innovations to create truly intelligent tire solutions.”
