Continental Offers ContiConnect Lite for OTR Applications

March 26, 2024

Continental Tire the Americas LLC has launched the ContiConnect Lite, a new app version for digital tire management.  

ContiConnect Lite creates a bridge between tire sensors and professional tire management and offers a free-of-charge gateway to selected ContiConnect features. It can now be used on tires with an integrated Gen2 sensor.  

“Digital tire management contributes to greater safety, efficiency and sustainability, especially in the areas of earthmoving, agriculture, and at ports”, says Martijn Oosterbaan, head of product management at Continental Specialty Tires.  

Thanks to a Bluetooth-enabled sensor, the tire data can be read directly via smartphone.  

“This makes access to digital tire management particularly easy,” says Oosterbaan.  

In addition to OTR tires, Continental also offers digital tire management to its truck tire customers. 

ContiConnect Lite requires no additional hardware other than the Gen2 tire sensor and a mobile device.  

“Drivers or fleet managers simply self-register themselves via Smartphone,” says Oosterbaan.  

They can then modify the vehicle and connect their vehicles through Bluetooth with the sensor inside the tire and access a limited version of the ContiConnect App. In total, three users can be registered free of charge. 

If there is a change in tire pressure or temperature, drivers are informed via push notification.
