Durham, North Carolina – Tire sensor and data management company Tyrata Inc. has introduced a cloud-based, data portal for its IntelliTread tire tread monitoring products.
The Tyrata.io portal works in combination with Tyrata’s drive-over system (DOS) to provide direct tire measurement and real-time tread wear analysis for large vehicle fleets.
The system is designed to “fully automate tread depth measurements and analytics needed for efficient tire-management and safe vehicle operation.”
There is no hardware cost and the system can be deployed within hours with no impact to current fleet operations, according to Tyrata’s 5 Jan statement.
The IntelliTread DOS – a finalist in the ERJ Journey to Automation Awards – was developed to provide a low-cost, easy-to-deploy tire tread monitoring in both passenger and commercial vehicle fleets.
The system collects tire-tread wear data when a vehicle drives over a speedbump-like unit. This is now linked to the cloud-based data analytics platform to inform service and depot managers about the condition of tires in real-time..
Once logged in, fleet operators can access “a secure data portal where they can monitor the health of any individual tire with an ability to obtain instant tire history and analytics,” explained Tyrata.
Operators, it added, can also get fleet-wide tire-wear status and service recommendations for optimised tire maintenance and optimal vehicle safety.
"The Tyrata data portal provides comprehensive tire data management, data visualization and maintenance analytics," said Luka Lojk, Tyrata’s VP of sales and marketing.
The technology, he added, positions fleet managers “to make data-driven maintenance decisions that optimise resources and improve safety."
