With Aperia Technologiess’ Halo Connect 2.0, fleets can now access new levels of reporting customization and maintenance recommendations based on what users want. Halo Connect 2.0 is the latest evolution in the company’s comprehensive tire management platform and was unveiled during the American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.
Halo Connect is a cradle-to-grave connected tire management platform that allows fleets to virtually eliminate unplanned tire-related downtime, reduce tire costs per mile, and build driver confidence by pairing machine learning with active inflation, according to the company.
Halo Connect 2.0 contains some key new elements that can prevent tire health issues before they start to hurt the operation. The system includes functionality to engage drivers, technicians, operations teams and third-party maintenance providers.
First introduced in 2019, Halo Connect works in tandem with Halo Tire Inflator, a revolutionary automatic tire inflation system for trucks and trailers that installs in minutes and can be used on all wheel positions. The Halo Connect platform now includes key modules to help fleets optimize decision-making and cost across the tire lifecycle.
Halo Connect 2.0 uses machine learning to characterize the many interrelated components and sometimes competing variables that affect tire-related maintenance, helping fleets be more proactive in their maintenance programs to optimize uptime and save on maintenance costs.
“Dozens of trade-offs need to be considered when designing the right cradle-to-grave fleet tire management strategy,” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia Technologies, in a release. “Halo Connect now couples deep historical tire health insights with fleet-specific inputs to deliver transformative tire management solutions customized to each client.”
“Aperia’s tire analytics engine leapfrogs existing technologies that simply provide tire pressure alerting,” continued Carter. “By considering the business and operational context necessary to deliver actionable alerting, Halo Connect enables fleets to get every cent they paid for out of their tires and tire technology investments.”
Halo Connect is compatible with all vehicle makes and models and is available through major OEMs, a network of partners, and directly from Aperia. With the Halo Connect Plan, Halo Connect 2.0 can be purchased as an asset or as a subscription service.
