A. We have a wide suite of ContiConnect™ digital solutions available, and we work closely with each operator to ensure the right system is in place to meet their particular requirements.
Each solution starts with ContiConnect™ tyre pressure sensors, which are mounted onto the tyre’s inner liner. These sensors transmit real-time tyre pressure and temperature data, and depending on the system chosen, this data can be sent directly to a display in the driver’s cab, can be captured as vehicles return to base by the Yard solution or if a fleet needs remote tyre pressure monitoring, the sensors also connect to ContiConnect™ Live - a central web portal accessed by fleet managers.
ContiConnect™ Live is able to monitor the tyre pressure of multiple vehicles, regardless of their location, while they are on the road, whereas ContiConnect™ Yard, measures tyre pressure on multiple vehicles which regularly enter a yard, noting the date and time as the vehicle passes a dedicated fixed check-point, and reporting the status of each tyre to the web portal.
Tyre data can also be captured with our hand-held tool, which allows drivers or fleet managers to manually upload information and share to the ContiConnect™ web portal. This entry level manual solution is useful where live tracking is not required, for vehicles which do not frequently return to a dedicated checkpoint, or for instances when vehicles are not in range of ContiConnect Yard. The hand-held tool provides a quick and easy alternative to using a gauge to measure tyre pressure. Users simply scan the sensor from the side of the tyre, without any need to remove valve caps, measure, read pressure and replace the cap.
ContiConnect™ is completely scalable depending on requirement, and we work closely with customers to understand how they wish to monitor tyre pressure, in order to provide the best solution to meet this need. Tyre sensor notifications are also customisable depending on which data a fleet manager needs to see, and how frequently, if not in real time. The system can also manage data from multiple vehicles, to help fleet managers who may wish to switch from less flexible manual service planning, to a more targeted proactive maintenance plan. Such predictive tyre management helps fleets reduce costs associated with unplanned tyre maintenance and replacements and helps safeguard the fleet’s safety.
