INTELLITIRE™: A CONNECTED TIRE PRESSURE MANAGEMENT PLATFORM DESIGNED TO REDUCE DOWNTIME AND SIMPLIFY FLEET TIRE MAINTENANCE
There are over 16 million commercial truck breakdowns every year. Half of those are tire-related with poor pressure management being a common cause. Unfortunately, semi-truck or commercial tire pressure is not something you can set and forget. Maintaining proper tire pressure is critical because tire-related breakdowns are expensive and can be dangerous.
The use of a commercial truck tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for your off-the-road or truck and bus fleets can help optimize performance, save money, and provide safety for your drivers and those on the road with them.
With tire costs and roadside maintenance expenses continually increasing, it makes sense to proactively work to keep your tires operating correctly and safely. Bridgestone’s IntelliTire™ helps you address tire pressure issues in real-time to avoid downtime and keep your fleets running safely and smoothly.

How does IntelliTire™ work?
Easy-to-install, durable tire pressure monitoring sensors are attached that monitor and measure tire pressure and temperature in real-time. This durable hardware has been tested in various harsh conditions and only takes 10-15 minutes to install.
A fleet yard router or 4G connection sends the tire pressure measurement data to the cloud, relays it to office staff in the yard, and allows for monitoring of any alerts so that you can take action if and when needed.
The IntelliTire app makes tire maintenance simple for fleets by putting actionable insights and easy-to-use reports in their hands at all times. This fleet management technology is simple, robust, intelligent and safe TPMS oversight to keep your fleets compliant and on the road.
