Continental partners with Vodafone on Internet of Things technology for tire pressure monitoring

continental-wide-base-tire

Continental has partnered with Vodafone to bring Internet of Things (IoT) technology to its ContiConnect digital tire monitoring program. ContiConnect uses Vodafone’s IoT SIM technology to collect tire pressure data for commercial vehicle fleets, every time the trucks return to the fleet terminal, and display it in a mobile-friendly web portal that can be accessed from anywhere.

Tires with ContiConnect are monitored every time its trucks or buses return to the terminal, helping prevent tire blowouts on the road, and the fleet manager or maintenance manager is able to view the data remotely, Continental shared, eliminating the need for manual tire pressure checks.

“Fleets no longer have to rely on performing tire pressure checks on tens, hundreds, or even thousands of tires on their vehicles,” Paul Williams, Continental’s executive vice president of Commercial Vehicle Tires in the Americas, said. “With ContiConnect, they will know immediately upon returning to the fleet terminal whether any tires have low pressure. Leveraging the Internet of Things saves fleets time and money by protecting their tires, and improves safety for everyone who drives on the roadway.”

“This is a great example of how IoT can make real world differences in so many unexpected places,” Vodafone’s IoT Director Stefano Gestaut said. “This ensures that truck drivers experience fewer tire-related breakdowns and accidents—making the roads a safer place to be for every vehicle user.”
