PeopleNet, a Trimble company and provider of fleet mobility technology, announced that it was the first complete fleet mobility technology to integrate with Valor, a Canadian tire pressure monitoring provider. PeopleNet Senior Vice President of Product and Operations Rick Ochsendorf said, “Our integration with Valor gives our customers yet another choice for providing real-time tire-pressure information directly to their maintenance desk. Proactively managing tire pressure gives fleets a huge opportunity to reduce vehicle maintenance costs and improve fuel economy and safety.”
Valor’s advanced tire pressure monitoring systems are manufactured with the latest technology based on its research and design institute. It is the only tire pressure monitoring company that develops and manufactures the complete tire pressure monitoring solution from sensor chip level to analyzing software interface.
“We’re proud to be a key PeopleNet integration partner,” said Valor President Will Hu. “Our collaborative relationship enables us to provide our advanced, patented Tire Pressure Monitoring System to PeopleNet’s customers. Our solution integrates seamlessly within PeopleNet’s open framework. In this way, we are able to deliver reliable, timely data that leads to better tire efficiency, increased safety, and overall logistic benefits.”
The integration is the antidote for natural leakage and seasonal climatic changes that lower tire pressure. Providing drivers a visual cue is the most effective way to alert them to check their vehicles’ tire pressure before the pressure drops to lower-than-acceptable levels, which prevents unnecessary tire failure and tread wear, increased stopping distance, reduced fuel economy and the overall threat to vehicle safety.
