A new collaboration between Doran Manufacturing and PeopleNet will allow for tire pressure data to be transmitted “off the truck” to lessen the dependence on truck drivers to monitor and correct low tire pressures. The system will integrate Doran’s 360 tire pressure monitoring system with PeopleNet’s in-cab systems to relay information to fleet managers.
“We have had a wide variety of fleets complete successful trials and begin implementation of the Doran 360 tire pressure monitoring systems based on the economic benefits associated with reducing tire-related repair and maintenance costs,” said Doran gm Jim Samocki.
“The integration will enable tire pressure data and low pressure alarms to be transmitted off the truck to minimize the dependence on the driver to resolve the issue, avoid costly roadside repairs, and improve the effectiveness of the tire repair and maintenance programs for fleets,” he added.
Samocki said the idea for the integrated system initially came from a customer.
Low tire pressures, along with warnings and reports, will be transmitted in real-time to the proper maintenance personnel as well as to drivers, Doran noted.
