Pedigree, Doran team up on tire pressure monitoring

Aug. 20, 2014

Pedigree Technologies LLC and Doran Manufacturing LLC of Cincinnati OH have partnered to develop a system that allows a vehicle’s tire pressure to be monitored remotely.

 When used alongside the Doran 360 tire pressure monitoring system, Pedigree Technologies OneView can be used to view tire pressure readings remotely. This allows a dispatcher to ensure tires are properly inflated, which can help prolong the life of the tires and improve fuel economy.

 Joshua DeCock, Pedigree Technologies director of product management, says: “The system provides customers with deeper visibility into their operations. Tires are one of the top expenses for equipment/trucks and operating with underinflated tires will decrease tire life at the very least and usually leads to downtime.”

 The Doran 360 tire pressure monitoring system sends tire pressure readings to the OneView platform each time the ignition is turned off or on and whenever there is a dramatic tire pressure loss or a low pressure alarm is activated in a tire. Tire pressure readings are combined with the vehicle’s real-time GPS location. OneView sends email and text message alerts to the dispatcher if improper tire conditions exist.
