NEW ORLEANS—Fleet tire management specialist Aperia Technologies launched Halo Connect i3, billed as an “integrated, intelligent, automatic inflation” solution, at the American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council  2024 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.

With integrated pressure sensing, remote pressure setting point adjustment, configurable alerts, and customized inflation settings, this comprehensive, smart solution goes beyond ATIS and TPMS offerings, helping fleets improve efficiency and maximize operational uptime, Ralph Dimenna, CCO, explained during a press briefing. The Halo Connect i3 is equipped with Bluetooth, RF, CAN, GPS, and LTE connectivity for two-way communication. It integrates with other vehicle devices and fleet management systems, enabling comprehensive monitoring, adjustment, and control.

Halo Connect i3 elevates tire management beyond passive monitoring. Pressure monitoring is integrated into the Halo Tire Inflator, so there’s no need for separate TPMS sensors, resulting in more reliable and accurate pressure management. According to Aperia, it’s the first of its kind in the industry and allows fleets to have complete control of all truck and trailer wheel positions.

This intelligent alerting and analytics engine enables fleets to preemptively take action to address issues before they escalate.

“Imagine receiving customized real-time alerts for abnormal tire pressure, temperature, or vibration issues. This allows you to monitor performance, minimize costly roadside breakdowns, and make adjustments to your tire program with over-the-air communication,” Dimenna said.

Aperia boasts a million tires under management and algorithms trained over a hundred billion miles. Halo Connecti3 prioritizes simplicity, featuring a user-friendly interface accessible across all levels of the fleet. From drivers receiving clear tire status updates to technicians accessing detailed diagnostics, Halo Connect  i3 empowers users with data to provide optimal tire management.

The Halo Connect i3’s simple design installs within five minutes per wheel end. The system is now compatible with FlowBelow wheel covers or hub odometers and remains on the wheel during tire and wheel service to maximize uptime and convenience.

The CAN-compatible Halo Connect i3 system introduces state-of-the-art data analytics, including asset tracking, customizable reports, and intelligent alerting. From fleetwide metrics down to specific tire health history, this platform continues to deliver data-driven value.

The Halo Connect i3 is designed to unlock tangible benefits for medium- and heavy-duty fleets of all sizes. According to Aperia, the system delivers:

  • Improved fuel economy. Accurate tire inflation management improves rolling resistance, translating into an average fuel savings of 1 to 2% and reduced emissions.
  • Boosted uptime. Proactive tire care minimizes road calls and tire-related breakdowns by up to 70%, ensuring your fleet stays on the road.
  • Enhanced driver safety. Real-time tire insights reduce risks associated with tire failures, keeping drivers safe.
  • Improved sustainability. Optimal tire performance reduces the environmental impact of a truck by up to 3 tons of CO2 per year.
  • Increased profitability. With Halo Connect i3, fleets can expect an improvement of $2,000 per year per truck from fuel savings, reduced breakdowns, and managed maintenance costs.
