Truck service data is reaching the point where predictive maintenance is close to becoming a reality. If this year’s TMC is any indication, tires are a maintenance focus that will see a bloom of data, the goal being to prevent unplanned tire service needs that put your equipment on the side of the road. Tire pressure monitoring systems and automatic inflation systems remain the first line of on-road defense, but with sensors on those systems, visibility into how tires are being inflated could change how fleets manager their tires on both a micro and macro scale.
The caveat is that tire pressure has always been a battle for fleets. It begs the question: How can data improve truck tire inflation practices?
For that answer, I connected with Judith Monte, vice president of customer experience and marketing, Aperia Technologies. She takes us through facing down common tire pressure challenges, how to prioritize and manage tire data, and what a predictive solution could bring to tire management practices. Watch the video above for all of her insight.
