Doran and PeopleNet are working together to provide an in-cab integration of tire pressure monitoring with off-truck communication and fleet management capabilities.
The collaboration will help fleets prevent problems from low tire pressures and will help to reduce fleet maintenance costs by providing real-time tire pressure data, warnings and reports directly to maintenance professionals and drivers.
The Doran 360 tire pressure monitoring systems are designed for fleets of all sizes and equipment configurations, including drop and hook operations.
“We turned a request from a customer into an active development project with PeopleNet,” says Doran general manager 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.”
Users can install the tire monitoring system without any special tools in less than an hour.
