Fleet maintenance: Tire pressure management system
Truck accessory: Mobile Awareness announces MobileTRAQ Vue tire pressure management system, integrated with TireStat TPMS.
Safety equipment: Mobile Awareness LLC, a provider of transportation safety products, announced the release of MobileTRAQ Vue, integrated with TireStat TPMS sensors, creating the most advanced tire pressure management system ever available for commercial trucks.
MobileTRAQ Vue is the first highly integrated and field upgradeable, commercial-grade monitoring and maintenance system, designed to grow with fleets and changing industry demands. It is a rugged, flexible asset-based monitoring system for both connected and stand-alone truck & trailer monitoring. Featuring an intuitive, programmable color touch-screen display that allows the driver to see and hear warnings, the MobileTRAQ platform was developed to readily connect with Mobile Awareness wired and wireless sensors, the first of which is TireStat TPMS.
TireStat TPMS is an innovative flow-thru tire sensor mountable inside the tire or externally on the valve stem. These unique TPMS sensors transmit data every 60 seconds to the MobileTRAQ monitor, with pressure and temperature events triggering the system to alarm in real-time. This rapid reporting is as much as 5 times more frequent than most other TPMS systems. With a battery life of up to 10 years and an operating temperature of -40°F to 257°F (-40°C to 125°C), TireStat is the ruggedized sensor choice for commercial tire maintenance and monitoring.
Designed and manufactured in Northeast Ohio, MobileTRAQ Vue integrated with TireStat TPMS offers the user unique early warning indications, as well as adjustable tire alarm levels. Additional features include various integrated telematics communication interfaces for monitoring inside the vehicle and remotely, all provided with a 3-year warranty. The fleet owner¹s investment is further protected since MobileTRAQ will provide updates and feature upgrades including voice enunciation, driver logs and inspection forms.
“Most fleet owners are realizing the value and the immediate return on investment that TPMS can provide. With more than three years of engineering and multiple patents filed, we set out to eliminate the limitations of existing monitoring systems,” says Gary Rothstein, president of Mobile Awareness. “As a result, we are extremely excited to announce the first solution that protects a fleets¹ technology investment with both software-upgradability and expandable hardware features.”
“Two of the initial hardware upgrades available Q1 2014 will be the integration of a wireless tread depth gauge as well as our SenseStat Obstacle Detection Sensor System,”continued Rothstein.
Reducing tire expense and increasing fuel economy while limiting costly tire breakdowns, positions MobileTRAQ integrated with TireStat as the future of vehicle monitoring.
