Truck-Lite has integrated Pressure Systems International automatic tire inflation and tire pressure monitoring systems data into the Road Ready system through its SmartBridge Integrator.
Released in 2018, the SBI bridges original equipment trailer systems with the Road Ready network, which communicates trailer data to a fleet dispatcher and provides greater insight into a trailer environment.
The recent integration with PSI allows fleets to access critical tire data and avoid downtime by taking preventive action.
The SBI will transmit data from both the PSI Trailer ATIS and TireView TPMS, which work together to provide critical data regarding tire health. The integration with Road Ready makes this data available to a fleet's back office through the Road Ready user interface.
"Working with PSI to develop this technology brings us a step closer to a smart-trailer reality," said Rob Richard, general manager of Truck-Lite's Road Ready division. "We look forward to continued collaboration with PSI to deliver even more enhanced data to fleets."
