Continental updates ContiConnect platform

Continental has released the first update for its digital tire monitoring platform, ContiConnect.

New features, which are available to all ContiConnect users now, include the ability to set individual notification rules regarding tire temperature and pressure with custom thresholds. This allows fleet managers and maintenance managers to select their own alert notification levels. In the original release of the platform, the “Very Low Pressure” alert level, which triggers text and email alerts, was set for all users at 25% under-inflated. Now, fleets can customize this level to receive text and email alerts when a tire reaches 10% under-inflated, for example.

Another new feature is the “air filling assistant,” which supports precise tire inflation regardless of the tire’s temperature. The user is able to toggle between viewing the actual tire pressure and temperature, or viewing a compensated pressure at 68°F to see the cold inflation level.

According to the company, additional new features include:

  • Printable task lists with open to-dos for efficient overview of maintenance tasks for workshop employees;
  • Data export enables individualized analyses and allows for processing in further systems, for example in Excel; and
  • Manual tire data upload to the web portal, called ContiConnect Light, enables tire monitoring without a yard reader station or telematics integration.

Continental said that the new features were created based on customer feedback.

“Customer feedback is very important for our further development of ContiConnect and its features according to fleet operators’ needs,” said Karim Fraiss, head of marketing & operations digital solutions at Continental Commercial Vehicles Tires. “In the future, we want to put even more focus on our co-creation approach in order to maximize the value we can deliver to customers using our digital tire monitoring platform.”
