KANATA, Ontario — TireStamp Inc. has redesigned its tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) product line, called the Tire Virgil Cloud Service, allowing fleets to monitor their tires 24/7 via a cloud-based system.
According to the company, fleet owners have the ability to prioritize and schedule service to address tire problem as they arise.
TireStamp said the TPMS 2.0 system monitors tire conditions with vehicle location and connects each vehicle to the TireVigil cloud while offering an automated, advanced tire alert platform that uses "intelligent" algorithms to calculate cold inflation pressure.
The system not only categorizes alerts by their severity, but also recognizes the appropriate fleet resources to receive alerts based on vehicle location, resource availability and the degree of tire issue severity before it reaches a critical inflation or temperature level, the company said. Mileage-based reminders for checking wheel nut torque after tire changes are included.
The system also offers a scheduled reporting service, which automatically generates fleet-wide and location-specific reports on tire service and quality, while the "Always On TireWatch" tire-service app provides visibility of all tire issues and vehicle location, prioritizes tire issues and simplifies sensor management, tire service and its record keeping.
One other benefit of the update, TireStamp said, is that it provides an Application Program Interface (API) that exchanges information between programs so other fleet management systems and service providers can write software that uses TireVigil Cloud data.
"TireVigil Cloud is a comprehensive and innovative service that capitalizes on the latest advancements in technology to deliver the visibility and flexibility fleets desire since it is totally customized to each fleet's requirements and can also be easily updated when fleet needs change," TireStamp President Peggy Fisher said.
"By connecting every vehicle to the cloud and knowing how long tires can run before they reach catastrophic alert levels, en route tire-related breakdowns are eliminated, operations are not disrupted unnecessarily, treadwear and casing life is optimized, fuel economy is maximized, and safety is improved."
TireVigil Cloud data are bundled with unlimited alerts, reports and usage of the Always On TireWatch servicing app for a fixed monthly subscription fee.
TireStamp's website has been redesigned around the TireVigil Cloud Servce and supports all popular mobile devices. The website has a more user-friendly format, TireStamp said, and includes videos that describe the features and benefits of the TireVigil Cloud Service.
