TMS: a step forward to the future heavy vehicles mobility
The Intelligent Connected Tire, integrated into a TMS system, allows direct communication between the tire and the vehicle, providing the correct inflated pressure value compensated by the real tyre temperature. The system provides accurate warnings both to the driver than to the fleet manager, improving the features of a standard TPMS system. In the commercial logistics business, the reduction of the fuel/energy consumption and the predictive maintenance are key elements in improving the sustainability and cost optimization of a fleet. The Tire Mounted System, by maintaining constant monitoring of vehicle performance, improves the efficiency and environmental impact of a fleet.
