Tyre Control Service

 

Astrata introduces its Tyre Control Service which allows transport and logistics companies to precisely monitor the state of all tyres in all trucks and trailers of their fleet. New service is available now on DriverLinc on-board computer.

 

The service is fully integrated with ContiPressureCheck solution from Continental.

 

Challenges of the market

Having a complete visibility of tyre condition can reduce operational costs, downtime and accidents.

 

Results from an independent study demonstrate that average under inflation of tyres is as high as 15%. This results in an increase of fuel consumption of approximately 3%. Furthermore tyre life can also be reduced by up to 18%. This demonstrates that a tyre management programme will result in considerable savings on a fleet’s operational costs, particularly in the areas of fuel and preventative or corrective maintenance.

 

The transport and logistics industry is continuously under pressure to manage fleets efficiently. This requires a focus on vehicles, trailers, loads, drivers and tyres. The tyre is the only connection between a vehicle and the road surface, therefore tyre management is crucial. A fleet implementing a tyre management system can reduce unexpected delays through tyre problems, particularly uneven wear, blowouts and punctures. This can also result in a reduced vehicle downtime through accidents or unexpected tyre maintenance.

 

What exactly is TCS (Tyre Control Service)?

Tyre Control Service (TCS) from Astrata is a solution which allows to connect to sensors placed inside the tyres of any brand and collects data such as tyre pressure and temperature!

 

Tyre Control Service (TCS) uses the sensor inside the tire and continuously monitors the pressure and temperature of the tyre, detecting threshold alarms for inflation and pressure. It allows to detect even the small continuous pressure drop, which is the most difficult to be noticed immediately with human eye.

 

 

TCS provides real-time tyre performance data and alerts to the driver (via DriverLinc tablet) and to the managers in the back office*. In this way the customer can real-time monitor tyre pressure both in the vehicle and in the back office* and drivers are immediately aware of slow punctures and they may act to schedule services to support tyre maintenance and lower maintenance costs.

 

The major alerts generated by the solution include:

  • Quick tyre pressure loss
  • Extremely low tyre pressure
  • Low tyre pressure
  • Tyre temperature
  • No signal
  • Check sensor
  • Sensor defect

 

New service is available now on DriverLinc on-board computer, enabling the driver to constantly monitor the conditions of his tyres. What is more, he is being automatically notified whenever unacceptable value occurs, suggesting there is an issue with the tyre, so that the driver has enough time to take up any necessary actions and prevent more difficult and dangerous situation to happen. Moreover, the fleet manager will also be notified and presented the exact same set of real-time tyre data via FleetVisor portal*. In this way your back office managers will gain valuable input over the complete condition of each truck and better overview of upcoming maintenance needs.
