Michelin Americas Truck Tires' new eTire System provides fleet managers real-time information to maintain efficiency and minimize costs.
The eTire System incorporates an InTire Sensor, sidewall-mounted SensorDock, Hand-Held or Drive-By Reader, and BIB Track software to capture and instantly report tire pressure, wheel position, and maintenance information. The InTire Sensor can be attached to any brand of truck tire.
Information gathered is then reported in a fleet-specific manner via an Internet server. The BIB Track software can account for retread costs by exchanging information with BIB Tread, Michelin's retread management software.
Both Drive-By and Hand-Held Readers can differentiate between inner and outer dual tires.
