Continental and MiX Telematics have joined forces to provide fleet customers with optimised tyre monitoring and the transmission of real-time tyre information to fleet managers.

The companies have integrated Continental’s ContiPressureCheck (CPC) tyre-management system with the MiX Telematics Fleet Manager platform.

“By integrating CPC with MiX Fleet Manager, real-time tyre pressure data, as well as critical system alerts relating to tyre pressure, temperature and detection of leaks can be accessed by fleet managers. This is essential information to keep the truck fleet operating at optimal efficiency, reducing downtime and improving safety,” says Darren Voges, business development manager for the Truck Business Unit at Continental Tyre South Africa.

The CPC system comprises individual sensors mounted inside each tyre, linked to an external antenna and a central control unit (CCU). Data gathered from the sensors is transmitted to the CCU, which evaluates the information and provides the status of all tyres on the display mounted in the truck cab.

Tyre pressures and any crucial warnings, such as pressure loss or high temperatures, are thus instantly available to the driver – and now the fleet manager, too. The MiX Telematics on-board computer is easily integrated into the CPC hardware for recording and transmitting essential vehicle data to the MiX Fleet Manager application.

“MiX Fleet Manager provides fleet owners with vital vehicle and driver data to determine everything from fuel efficiency to driver behaviour and now, tyre monitoring with the CPC integration,” says Gert Pretorius, MD of MiX Telematics Africa.

“This data is an indispensable tool for any business, irrespective of size, industry, or geographic location to help reduce operating costs, improve efficiency and ultimately, enhance the safety of drivers and vehicles,” he concludes.
