John Pye, consultant at TyrePal, says visitors to the CV Show (26—28 April, NEC, Birmingham) will be able to sign up to trials of TyrePal’s remote tyre pressure monitoring system TeleTPMS.
TeleTPMS allows drivers and fleet managers to monitor tyre pressure and receive alarms by e-mail or SMS when tyres are over/under inflated or overheating, along with live updates on the location of all monitored vehicles.
“Studies show that 10% under-inflation in tyres increases rolling resistance by 5%, which results in a 1% increase in fuel consumption,” explains Pye.
“Breakdowns, blowouts and tyre fires are other unwanted and dangerous consequences of wrongly inflated tyres,” continues Pye.
“Incorrect tyre pressure also causes premature tyre wear. Early warnings from TyrePal’s TeleTPMS can help avoid these risks.”
