TPMS 2.0 Benefits

Specification Benefits
The ability to transmit the tire information off the vehicle wirelessly without driver or service technician interaction
  1. Automatic collection of all tire data for processing and performance analysis.
The ability to store all tire performance information for analysis
  1. Enables the fleet to view all tire data across all fleet vehicle types and determine vehicle specific tire performance trends.
  2. Enables the fleet to access a database of near real-time tire data from which tire alerts for under-pressure, over-inflation, excessive temperature and mismatched duals can be generated and communicated to the fleet for action.
  3. Enables the fleet to review tire performance history data from cradle-to-grave. This can be charted to show any actions leading up to significant tire events.
  4. Enables a Machine-to-Machine (M2M) architecture to automatically collect tire data without driver/operator/service provider interaction.
The ability to retrieve actionable tire information at any time using any internet enabled device (i.e. computer, laptop, netbook, cell phone, Blackberry, etc.)
  1. Enables fleet personnel to obtain specific tire service instructions so that they can react immediately to catastrophic tire alerts and take corrective actions.
  2. Provides immediate access to tire data anywhere at any time on any internet enabled device.
The ability to provide Cold Inflation Pressure (CIP) for any tire at any time
  1. Enables drivers and service personnel to properly air-up tire pressures to specific CIP inflation levels even though tires are hot eliminating guesswork.
  2. Eliminates false alarms caused by drops in ambient temperature
The ability to analyze tire data across the whole fleet, on a group of vehicles, on a specific vehicle or a single tire at any time
  1. Enables the fleet to compare how all of its tires are performing, the performance across vehicle types, and garage/maintenance performance.
The ability to alert whomever the fleet determines needs tire visibility
  1. Enables the fleet to designate specific individuals to receive, monitor and perform tire service.
  2. Provides Maintenance, outside tire service providers, Purchasing, or Dispatch with greater visibility of tire issues and accountability for problem resolution.
The ability to enable the fleet to set tire thresholds for underinflation, overinflation, overheating and rapid air loss situations by axle and vehicle type
  1. Enables the fleet to customize pressure and temperature alert parameters by vehicle type and axle position which is critical if it runs different pressures in steer and drive tires, for example, or in different types of equipment.
  2. Enables the fleet to change and tighten up alert thresholds as tire maintenance improves over time.
  3. Alert threshold changes can be made within minutes over the air without touching the vehicles
The ability to generate visibility reports for fleet management and action reports for service personnel at user definable dates and times
  1. Enables the fleet to run Fleet Tire Pressure Surveys any time at a click of a button.
  2. Provides work orders for technicians that can be scheduled to be delivered before the start of shifts.
  3. Provide powerful tools to manage, measure, and improve tire maintenance and performance.
The ability for service personnel to view specific vehicle tire information prior to and during servicing
  1. Enables tire service personnel to see specific tire data in real-time both before and while performing tire service work.
The ability to provide service personnel with tire service instructions
  1. Verifies that the correct service work was performed
  2. Performance and documentation of service work is standardized
The ability to maintain tire service records for tire service accountability
  1. Enables the fleet to review all activities regarding tire events and service work and to determine the quality of work performed and responsiveness of service personnel to tire alert situations.
