Remote real-time tyre monitoring
First publishedin ITS International
Trimble’s TirePulse tyre monitoring system is designed to provide fleet managers with automatic, real-time tyre pressure and high-temperature alerts, enabling them to schedule preventative tyre maintenance, extend the life of tyres, increase fuel efficiency and avoid dangerous blowouts.
The system monitors and wirelessly reports tyre temperature and pressure data from the jobsite to Trimble’s company VisionLink fleet, asset and site productivity management solution and automatically relays the information back to the office for analysis by the fleet manager.
VisionLink automatically alerts the fleet manager or site foreman when a tyre experiences a 20 per cent drop in pressure and becomes a potential hazard. It can also provide a high-temperature alert to indicate that jobsite conditions are likely to accelerate tyre breakdown.
