PeopleNet, a Trimble Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced the integration of a tire pressure monitoring system from WABCO, a leading supplier of technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles.
Through wheel-mounted sensors, WABCO's Integrated Vehicle Tire Monitoring (IVTM) system enables users to ensure optimal tire pressure by wirelessly providing in-cab updates of tire pressures directly from each wheel. The system alerts drivers to any tire pressure issues, allowing them to proactively address the problem to reduce tire failure.
"Working with WABCO gives our customers more choice when they are looking to add a tire pressure monitoring solution," said Tom Fansler, Executive Vice President, Product for PeopleNet. "WABCO's industry-leading technologies and commitment to safety make them an ideal partner."
The benefits of adding a tire pressure monitoring system are not limited to safety. WABCO's IVTM can help extend tire life by up to 20 percent and reduce fuel consumption by 2 percent. The system also provides comprehensive backend tire pressure data to improve efficiencies across a fleet.
"We're excited to be a PeopleNet integration partner," said Jon Morrison, WABCO President, Americas. "The combination of our advanced technology and PeopleNet's fleet mobility solutions gives companies vital information to streamline operations and help keep drivers safe."
