Mobile Awareness debuts TPMS system for trucks
Mobile Awareness LLC, a provider of transportation safety products, is offering the MobileTRAQ Vue, integrated with TireStat TPMS sensors, an advanced tire pressure management system for commercial trucks.
MobileTRAQ Vue is an integrated and field-upgradeable, commercial-grade monitoring and maintenance system, designed to grow with fleets and changing industry demands, the company says. It is a rugged, flexible asset-based monitoring system for both connected and stand-alone truck and trailer monitoring. Featuring an intuitive, programmable color touch-screen display that allows the driver to see and hear warnings, the MobileTRAQ platform was developed to readily connect with Mobile Awareness wired and wireless sensors, the first of which is TireStat TPMS.
TireStat TPMS is a flow-thru tire sensor mountable inside the tire or externally on the valve stem. The TPMS sensors transmit data every 60 seconds to the MobileTRAQ monitor, with pressure and temperature events triggering the system to alarm in real-time. TireStat has a battery life of up to 10 years and an operating temperature of -40 degrees Fahrenheit to 257 degrees F (-40 degrees Celsius to 125 degrees C).
Designed and manufactured in northeast Ohio, MobileTRAQ Vue integrated with TireStat TPMS offers the user early warning indications, as well as adjustable tire alarm levels. Additional features include various integrated telematics communication interfaces for monitoring inside the vehicle and remotely, all provided with a three-year warranty. The fleet owner’s investment is further protected since MobileTRAQ will provide updates and feature upgrades including voice enunciation, driver logs and inspection forms.
“Most fleet owners are realizing the value and the immediate return on investment that TPMS can provide. With more than three years of engineering and multiple patents filed, we set out to eliminate the limitations of existing monitoring systems,” says Gary Rothstein, president of Mobile Awareness. “As a result, we are extremely excited to announce the first solution that protects a fleets’ technology investment with both software-upgradability and expandable hardware features.”
“Two of the initial hardware upgrades available Q1 2014 will be the integration of a wireless tread depth gauge as well as our SenseStat Obstacle Detection Sensor System,” continues Rothstein.
