PeopleNet has partnered with Advantage PressurePro, the provider of PressurePro tire pressure monitoring products and technology. The partnership enables PeopleNet to integrate PressurePro’s tire pressure monitoring capabilities with its legacy systems beginning with BLU In-Cab PC.
Utilizing the PLC network for communication between the trailer and tractor, this integration will add tire pressure monitoring to PeopleNet’s existing capabilities. These include tracking, electronic onboard recording, vehicle and driver performance management, automated driver workflow, and electronic hours of service. In addition, it will add trailer management capabilities. The enhancement will be available by the end of second quarter 2010.
