Improve Uptime and
Reduce Costs
According to the Technology &
Maintenance Council (TMC), tire-related costs are the single largest maintenance expense for fleets. Improper
tire inflation increases those costs by
approximately $600-$800 annually,
per vehicle. How much could you save?
You know the value of checking
tire pressure, but it's challenging
to implement. It can take up to 20
minutes to check the tire pressure on
just one vehicle with a manual gauge.
Drivers may not get paid for the
time spent on pre-trip inspections,
increasing pressure to finish quickly.
Manual pressure gauges also need
to be calibrated frequently to maintain their accuracy. Do you have the
necessary time to spend?
With digital tire monitoring, the
tire pressure and temperature are
already being monitored. You don't
have to rely on performing manual
checks on tens or hundreds of tires.
You will identify at a glance the tires
that have issues, saving inspection
and maintenance time. Leveraging
the Internet of Things (IoT) with
digital tire sensors saves you time
and money, protects your tires, and
improves safety for everyone who
drives on the roadway.
Continental offers innovative solutions for tire monitoring. At their core
is a high-performance tire sensor
designed for commercial vehicles.
Components of all monitoring solutions can be combined to create the
perfect fit for your fleet.
ContiConnect® is ideal if your vehicles return to the terminal daily. The
yard reader, mounted in the fleet yard,
collects data from all the tire sensors
within range, roughly a 65-foot radius.
The data is analyzed and displayed
in the ContiConnect online portal. It
also triggers text and email alerts for
low tire pressure or high temperature,
using custom thresholds you set for
your fleet.
"ContiConnect is an accessible
solution for domiciled fleets, such as

those used in construction, regional
hauling, school buses, and city buses,"
says Michelle Reinhart, Continental's
head of digital solutions for the
Americas region.
"We don't charge per vehicle. The
yard reader picks up all the tire
sensors within range and delivers
the data to the mobile-friendly web
portal. This allows the maintenance
manager to confirm proper tire pressure before vehicles leave the fleet
yard, and as soon as they return. It's
a simple way to maintain control of
your tire program."
ContiPressureCheck monitors
a single vehicle in real-time, alerting the driver to tire pressure and
temperature issues using an in-cab
display. It can be connected to any of
our telematics partners for remote
data viewing in the telematics platform. Current partners include Zonar,
PeopleNet, Geotab, and Road Ready.

"With ContiPressureCheck, the
driver can monitor the tire pressure
situation in real-time, and determine
whether they need to immediately
pull off the road or whether they can
safely make it to the next service
station," explains Reinhart. "By adding
a telematics integration, a fleet
manager or dispatcher could help
with this analysis in real-time as well."
Digital tire monitoring helps you save
money and increase uptime. Contact

out how much you could save.
