Schwartz says Revvo is
designed to be a frictionless
experience from its customized
preferences to its integration
with other systems
of record to avoid being one
more dashboard to manage.
Monitoring Treads
Tyrata, Inc., a tire sensor and
data management company,
has developed its IntelliTread®
Drive-Over System
(DOS), which automates tire
wear monitoring. The Tyrata
IntelliTread® DOS collects tire
tread depth every time a vehicle
passes over the unit, which
resembles a speed bump. The
collected data is sent to a
Tyratai.io cloud for analytics
and displayed on a customer
portal in real time where
fleet managers can access and
manage every tire in the fleet.
Luka Lojk, vice president
of Sales and Marketing explains
the system provides
daily tire readings and historical
trendlines, which gives
fleet managers an overview of
their fleet and enables optimized
tire maintenance.
" DOS is easy to install, it is
fully automated and requires
no maintenance, " said Lojk.
" Customer payment is based
on a per tire per month subscription
basis with no direct
hardware or software cost. "
The system and data dashboard
are customizable and
Tyrata's engineers can refine
the company's hardware to
meet fleet specifications,
while its software allows for
custom tread wear settings
for front and rear axles depending
on customer goals.
The system has been studied
at the Durham City Transit
Company (GoDurham)
in North Carolina, which
manages a fleet of 60 buses.
The study shows GoDurham
saw a 12 percent tire and tire
maintenance savings with the
system. The transit company
was able to eliminate manual
tire measurements entirely
and tire tread usage increased
from 9.9 mm to 11.2 mm.
GoDurham also reduced tire
requirements by 100 tires per
year, while maintaining fleet
safety goals.
Lojk notes GoDurham
was able to save roughly
$1,000 per vehicle annually
in tire-related cost.
" In addition to cost reduction,
using tires longer
also significantly reduces environmental
impact through
better fuel efficiency and reduced
waste, " said Lojk.
While better analytics
are appreciated and a goal
of transit agencies, Lojk recognizes
the main priority of
transporting people is safety.
experience with
" Our
transit fleet managers is that
they are especially vigilant
regarding tire safety. Tyrata's
Drive-Over System enhances
safety by providing much
more frequent monitoring of
every single tire in the fleet-
daily in most cases. This allows
the fleet manager to have
complete oversight of all tires
in their fleet every single day, "
he said.
