Fleet managers might not have an allocated telematics budget, but they all have a fuel/tyre budget which TPMS technology helps to decrease. Andrew Yeoman, CEO of Concirrus
London, UK (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Concirrus Ltd, a leading provider of telemetry solutions and Mobile Devices, the developer of the revolutionary open telematics OS and telematics hardware, today announced a collaboration to add PressurePro’s market leading Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) technology to the Mobile Devices Telematics Market Place. Under the Agreement, which will be facilitated by telematics leader Concirrus, Mobile Devices will integrate PressurePro’s tyre pressure information into the Morpheus embedded framework, allowing users easy access to the pressure data through a new set of standard APIs.
The agreement was prompted by the increasing need for Telematics Providers serving the heavy duty commercial fleet market to:
- Reduce costs – Tyres under-inflated by 30% cut tyre life in half. Further, under-inflation significantly increases fuel consumption.
- Reduce risk – Tyres under-inflated by 25% multiply the risk of a tyre related crash by three. In bad weather, the risk increases to a multiple of four. Furthermore, tyres are a risk factor in one of every seven fatal accidents.
- React to legislation - Europe and the US increasingly promote tyre pressure checks and continue to pass legislation allowing stronger penalties and fines for running on under-inflated tyres.
The Agreement will draw on the advanced technologies offered by PressurePro and the expertise of Concirrus' founders in the commercial vehicle telematics market, as well as on Mobile Devices’ open platform,wide range of hardware types and extensive SDK. The integration will allow operators to obtain the information needed to better manage tyre pressures across their fleet, maintain compliance and help mitigate problem tyre situations to improve safety.
"We see the provision of integrated tyre pressure information as increasingly important for fleets worldwide,” said Phillip Zaroor, President & CEO of Advantage PressurePro, “and we are excited to extend the reach of our solutions alongside Concirrus and Mobile Devices.”
“Fleet managers might not have an allocated telematics budget, but they all have a fuel/tyre budget which TPMS technology helps to decrease,” stated Andrew Yeoman, CEO of Concirrus. “Mobile Devices has always led the way in the provision of technology for Telematics Service Providers and, having seen the impressive customer solutions that they deliver, we are really pleased to have them as a partner for the PressurePro solutions.”
Sandy Mayer, Mobile Devices GM of North America added: “Advances in sensor technologies and stricter regulation on trucks worldwide make today’s tyre pressure management systems not only a compliance necessity but a key competitive advantage. With PressurePro on board, Mobile Devices’ marketplace of telematics services now includes the best-in-class TPMS”.
