PeopleNet and WABCO have paired up to make a tire pressure monitoring system, the two companies announced. Through wheel-mounted sensors, WABCO’s Integrated Vehicle Tire Monitoring (IVTM) system enables users to ensure optimal tire pressure by wirelessly providing in-cab updates of tire pressures directly from each wheel. The system alerts drivers to any tire pressure issues, allowing them to proactively address the problem to reduce tire failure. The benefits of adding a tire pressure monitoring system are not limited to safety. WABCO’s IVTM can help extend tire life by up to 20% and reduce fuel consumption by 2%, the company said.
“Working with WABCO gives our customers more choice when they are looking to add a tire pressure monitoring solution,” said Tom Fansler, PeopleNet’s executive vice president of product. “WABCO’s industry-leading technologies and commitment to safety make them an ideal partner.”
“We’re excited to be a PeopleNet integration partner,” said Jon Morrison, WABCO’s president for the Americas. “The combination of our advanced technology and PeopleNet’s fleet mobility solutions gives companies vital information to streamline operations and help keep drivers safe.”
