Heavy-duty: Despite likely inbound recession, factors continue to dull sharp truck downturn
Mobile Awareness LLC introduced YardTRAQ, a TPMS yard monitoring application compatible with their MobileTRAQ Vue in-cab vehicle monitor.
YardTRAQ utilizes the same TireStat tire pressure monitoring sensors that work with the MobileTRAQ Vue, providing immediate warnings of low tire pressure as a vehicle enters a parking or service facility. This local computer and cloud-based system detects all TireStat sensors mounted on tractors, trailers and/or utility vehicles in real-time within the yard and delivers continuous tire readings and alerts via electronic notification.
The TireStat sensors mount internally or externally on a tire, permitting parked vehicles to be continuously monitored 24/7.
“While inflation systems can keep a leaking tire in service during travel, when the trailer or asset is without power, tires do deflate and often go unnoticed,” said Gary Rothstein, president. “We developed YardTRAQ to alert the maintenance team when the vehicle returns home to help fleets avoid costly tire-related roadside breakdowns.”
