Many fleets report that their tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) do not provide warnings when their TPMS equipment becomes inoperable or malfunctions. As a result, they are not aware that they have lost part or all of their tire visibility. Without this visibility they are misled into believing that their tires are running down the road with no issues which may certainly not be the case.
This lack of TPMS equipment visibility impacts the quality of tire maintenance that is performed since no one is aware of developing or serious tire problems. Emergency roadside breakdowns and tire failures can occur which negates the value of the TPMS whose purpose was to prevent these problems to begin with.
TireVigil Cloud’s TPMS 2.0 service addresses this issue by continuously monitoring each hardware component’s health. Its innovative equipment analytics detects problems with:
- tire sensor(s)
- TPMS receiver (OST), or
- in-cab equipment (TDM)
