Ahead of the new TPMS requirements coming into force in 2024, Schmitz Cargobull is already helping customers to prepare with its innovative solutions. The TrailerConnect® telematics system, which is installed ex works as standard as part of the 100% Smart strategy, is equipped with a TPMS receiver module, meaning that sensors only need to be installed on the wheels for the tyre pressure to be monitored. As a result, the status of the trailer and tyres can be monitored easily and conveniently in real time from the TrailerConnect® platform, and warnings can be issued in the event of discrepancies. The vehicle is therefore future-proof, helping customers to avoid costly retrofitting work.
TyreManager app: Smart app for tyre sensor positioning
Schmitz Cargobull is also continuing to enhance its range of vehicle services. With the TrailerConnect® TyreManager app, the tyre sensors can be easily configured by customers or service partners after a tyre change or tyre replacement, and all relevant tyre data is immediately available again in the TrailerConnect® portal. Time-consuming workshop visits are minimised and trailer availability and safety are increased.
beSmartApp: Status monitoring for the driver
With the beSmart app, drivers are able to check and monitor the tyre pressure status for their trailers at any time. Alarm messages in the event of deviations enable the driver to react at an early stage, thus minimising downtime. Tyre pressure data is also transferred to the tractor unit, enabling permanent monitoring and quick intervention by the driver.
