TyreWatch, the TPMS System for Commercial Fleets

TyreWatch, a tyre pressure monitoring system was recently launched by Tructyre with it intending to provide a continuous, real-time condition report for each and every tyre in a fleet, which its main design concept being to provide fleet managers with complete peace of mind.

Incorrectly pressurised tyres are one of the most common cause of roadside failures and are avoidable if the correst safety measures are implemented. TyreWatch works in conjunction with the driver’s daily visual checks and Tructyre’s proactive maintenance programme.

TyreWatch works hand in hand with the fleet and is configured to each and every vehicle, with sensors mounted securely in the wheels, whilst continuously monitoring pressure, temperature, speed and location.

When TyreWatch detects an issue, it immediately informs both the driver and the fleet management office so action can be taken. Non-urgent issues, like slow pressure loss or a modest temperature increase, can be fixed once the vehicle returns to base.

In the case that TyreWatch detect rapid pressure leakage or high temperatures it generates an urgent stop alert. The driver can then pull over in full control of the vehicle, preventing imminent tyre failure. With vehicle tracking as standard, Tructyre then locates the vehicle with pinpoint accuracy.
