PressurePro Participating in FMCSA's Wireless Inspection Program
June 16, 2011
Advantage PressurePro announced its participation in the Wireless Roadside Inspection (WRI) Program with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Oak Ridge National Labs.
As the only tire pressure monitoring system provider involved in the program, PressurePro continues to work alongside the government as well as many leading technology partners to provide real-time tire pressure monitoring capabilities for WRI reporting.
The WRI Program, designed to significantly increase the number of commercial motor vehicle safety inspections, allows enforcement personnel to wirelessly capture brake stroke, vehicle weight, tire pressure status and more. With these capabilities, the WRI Program can help improve highway safety through increased and better targeted inspections. The program also aims to benefit drivers and fleets through reduced stops and alleviated congestion on the Nation's roadways. The wireless reporting allows carriers to improve CSA scores by receiving credit for all positive inspections.
Along with providing tire pressure information and alerts, PressurePro has also joined with leaders in brake and weight reporting to allow brake stroke and vehicle weight reports to be captured and transmitted alongside TPMS readings. This added capability allows PressurePro to provide these added readings to the WRI reports.
