FALCONER, N.Y. (September 2019) – Truck-Lite Co., LLC, a worldwide leader in LED lighting, telematics, engine protection, safety and visibility systems, has integrated Pressure Systems International (PSI) automatic tire inflation and tire pressure monitoring systems data into the Road Ready system via its SmartBridge Integrator (SBI).
Released in 2018, the SBI bridges OE trailer systems with the Road Ready network, which communicates crucial trailer data to a fleet dispatcher and provides greater insight into a trailer environment. The recent integration with PSI allows any fleet to access critical tire data and avoid downtime by taking preventive action.
“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.”
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.
“Our ATIS and TPMS solutions allow fleets to improve uptime and lower CSA scores while simultaneously allowing the driver to focus on driving and optimizing their hours of service (HOS),” said Jonathan Gravell, vice president of business development for PSI. “Integrating PSI systems into Road Ready helps fleets to drive down operating costs and diagnose issues before they become real problems.”
The Road Ready system by Truck-Lite is the leading wireless, multi-functional trailer monitoring network and is easily customizable for any fleet requirement. With its suite of wireless sensors and the largest number of OE trailer system and fleet software integrations, Road Ready provides the most comprehensive and inclusive fleet telematics solution available.
