SmarTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) by Bendix CVS is now available to fleets through the network of Bendix OES and independent aftermarket partners across North America.
This product monitors pressure and temperature of each tire on a commercial vehicle to provide real-time tire status information to the driver or maintenance technician. It also warns the driver of tire-related problems before they become dangerous. SmarTire reads pressure and temperature information from inside the tire and communicates wirelessly to an on-board receiver, which forwards the information to an easy-to-read, multifunction, two-inch display on the vehicle dash.
The display alerts the driver to loss of air pressure or high tire temperature and provides pressure information to maintenance personnel. Keeping commercial vehicle tires at proper inflation levels can deliver fuel savings, as well as reduce tire wear and help ensure the proper performance of active safety technologies like Bendix ESP (Electronic Stability Program) and Wingman ACB (Active Cruise with Braking) when needed.
