A new mobile tire management system offers the opportunity for drivers to upload critical tire maintenance data to a website for analysis by fleet managers.
Mobile Tire Manager, from Fleetline Metrics, can be used with a smartphone or other web-enabled device, including tablets. It records critical tire data such as date, time, location, mileage, air pressure and tread depth and makes that information available in a searchable, sortable database. The information can then be emailed to maintenance managers, fleet dispatch teams, repair vendors, and even the DOT, Fleetline Metrics said.
Drivers can also upload tractor and trailer data as well as any noticeable damage.
