Aperia Technologies launched Halo Connect i3, an integrated, intelligent, automatic inflation solution that goes beyond automatic tire inflation and monitoring offerings, according to the company.

Halo Connect i3 allows fleets to optimize efficiency and maximize uptime with integrated pressure sensing, remote pressure set point adjustment, configurable alerts, and customized inflation settings.

Equipped with Bluetooth, RF, CAN, GPS, and LTE connectivity, Halo Connect i3 allows two-way communication, seamlessly integrating with other vehicle devices and fleet management systems, enabling comprehensive monitoring, adjustment, and control.

With pressure monitoring integrated into the Halo Tire Inflator, there’s no need for separate TPMS sensors, resulting in more reliable and accurate pressure management, said the company.

According to Aperia, Halo Connect i3 is the first of its kind in the industry, allowing fleets to have complete control of all truck and trailer wheel positions. This intelligent alerting and analytics engine enables fleets to preemptively take action to address issues before they escalate.

“Imagine receiving customized real-time alerts for abnormal tire pressure, temperature, or vibration issues,” said Ralph Dimenna, chief commercial officer. “This allows you to monitor performance, minimize costly roadside breakdowns, and make adjustments to your tire program with over-the-air communication.”

Halo Connect i3 Designed to be Simple and User-Friendly

With 1 million tires under management and algorithms trained over 100 billion miles, Aperia delivers technology tailored to individual fleet requirements. Halo Connect i3 prioritizes simplicity, featuring a user-friendly interface accessible across all levels of the fleet, from drivers receiving clear tire status updates to technicians accessing detailed diagnostics.

The Halo Connect i3 installs within 5 minutes per wheel end. The system is completely compatible with FlowBelow wheel covers or hub odometers and remains on the wheel during tire and wheel service.

"This system works on medium-duty assets and it works on heavy-duty assets," Dimenna said during a press briefing on the show floor during the 2024 TMC Annual Meeting in New Orleans on March 4. "We now have a single, fleet-wide, comprehensive program that gives the same type of solution that we've been offering our heavy-duty customers for medium-duty fleets and trailers.

"For the first time, we are bringing dynamic setpoint configuration monitoring and adustment to the industry. And that is combined with fully connected inflators that fleets can communicate with in two ways through all the different communication protocols. That includes Bluetooth, RF, GPS, LTE and any other protocol that is out there."

The CAN-compatible Halo Connect i3 system introduces state-of-the-art data analytics, including asset tracking, customizable reports, and intelligent alerting, from fleetwide metrics down to specific tire health history.

According to Aperia, the Halo Connect i3 delivers:

  • Improved Fuel Economy: Accurate tire inflation management improves rolling resistance, translating into an average fuel savings of 1 to 2% and reduced emissions.
  • Boosted Uptime: Proactive tire care minimizes road calls and tire-related breakdowns by up to 70%.
  • Enhanced Driver Safety: Real-time tire insights reduce risks associated with tire failures.
  • Improved Sustainability: Optimal tire performance reduces the environmental impact of a truck by up to 3 tons of CO2 per year.
  • Increased Profitability: With Halo Connect i3, fleets can expect an improvement of $2,000 per year per truck from fuel savings, reduced breakdowns, and managed maintenance costs, according to Aperia.

Aperia's Halo Connect Tire Management Platform announced last year was recently awarded an HDT Top 20 Products honor.
