Fleet Maintenance - 41

Future tire monitoring trends

Two trends are surfacing in the world of tire pressure monitoring and management systems. The
first being the use of TPMS and ATIS together.
Traditionally, fleets have selected only one system
because having both was considered redundant
and expensive.
"Fleets are now finding that they [also] need to
know what's going on with their tires rather than

just keeping air supplied to them and [are] realizing
that by pairing TPMS with ATIS they can have a very
robust tire maintenance and monitoring system,"
TireStamp's Fisher says.
Also, if fleets are using both TPMS and ATIS, along
with telematics, all of the information can be sent
back to the shop, so drivers can keep their focus
entirely on the road and not be distracted by system
alerts. If necessary, the shop can communicate with

the driver to let them know what's happening and
what action needs to be taken.
The second trend for these systems centers around
their sensors.
"As sensors become more cost-effective and we
track, analyze, and react to the information, expect
to see more sensorization of various performance
and maintenance aspects," PSI's Miller says. "This
will enable intensive data analytics, allowing fleets
to become far more
proactive in equipment
management and greater equipment optimization than ever before."
For example, Miller
advises PSI has been
developing a realtime digital version
of ThermALERT, a
wheel-end temperature sensing feature
that comes standard
with the company's
ATIS. This new version
will provide real-time
viewing of wheel-end
temperatures with the
ability to download
and analyze system
data through the use of
telematics.
Additionally, be on the
lookout for tire sensors
that provide warnings
about tread wear. This
will allow fleets to better
predict when tires will
need to be replaced.
Continental's Reinhart
mentions that they have
already conceived a tire
sensor that alerts drivers to low tread and tire
damage.
"Tire sensors in the
future may also alert the
driver to overloading,
[such as] when the cargo
weight exceeds the safe
weight capacity of the
tire," Reinhart says.

Conclusion

TPMS and ATIS both
greatly benefit fleets
through extending tire
life, increasing fuel
economy, reducing
maintenance costs, and
improving safety. Each
system works in its
own way to help fleets
achieve those benefits, and if the trends
continue, in the future,
each system will work
together to create the
optimal tire pressure
system solution.
