Webfleet Solutions and Bridgestone develop integrated tyre pressure monitoring system 28 September 2021

Webfleet TPMS provides predictive tyre management integrated into the Webfleet fleet management solution. Designed for heavy commercial vehicles, such as trucks and buses, it utilises sensors that continuously monitor tyre pressure levels and tyre temperature. The information is sent to the Webfleet Telematics Service Platform for analysis.

When an issue is detected, Webfleet alerts the fleet manager in the office and/or the driver in the cab in real time.

Paul Verheijen, vice president product management of Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said: “The majority of heavy truck breakdowns on European roads are caused by tyre-related issues such as underinflated tyres. Manual pressure checks are time consuming and slow leaks are very difficult for drivers to detect. Webfleet TPMS is not only digitising and automating this entire process, but it also directly enables the fleet operator to make fast, informed decisions to improve road safety and reduce tyre-related costs and downtime.”

The new service is a joint development between Webfleet and parent company Bridgestone.
