PeopleNet teams with WABCO on tire pressure monitoring

March 23, 2016

PeopleNet Company announces integration of its on-board computer technology with a tire pressure monitoring system from WABCO.

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% and reduce fuel consumption by 2%. 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.”
