TireStamp has added a “higher level of intelligence” to each of its TireVigil TPMS products through the INTELLAlerting system.

INTELLAlerting provides visibility of tire problems when they are occurring as well as when they are being corrected. It sends tire alerts only to personnel who can actually take action based on a vehicle’s location and operating status.

TireStamp’s TireVigil with INTELLAlerting operates in “sleep mode” when all the tires are within optimal, fleet customized parameters, the company explained. The system continuously monitors tires in the background and tire data is sent to the TireVigil cloud where it is stored and further analyzed. When a tire exceeds a fleet’s established threshold for underinflation or overheating, INTELLAlerting immediately kicks in and sends alerts to appropriate fleet personnel and/or its tire service provider based on vehicle location and operating status.

The system also recognizes whether the vehicle is moving, parked in the fleet’s yard, or parked at another location. It then sends an alert only to those people the fleet has identified as requiring the alerts in various situations. For example, if a vehicle is traveling down the road and a tire exceeds a fleet’s established under-inflation threshold, there is no need to send an alert to the technician back in the fleet’s garage 500 mi. away. Instead the alert is directed to dispatch or the fleet’s designated emergency road service. Conversely, If the vehicle is parked in one of the fleet’s yards, only technicians within that fleet’s maintenance facility will receive the alert.

“One of the biggest benefits of TireVigil TPMS with INTELLAlerting is that it doesn’t exasperate people with alerts that they can’t do anything about,” said Peggy Fisher, president. “It directs alerts only to the right people based on their responsibility for handling the tire problem and the vehicle's location while taking into account whether or not the vehicle is running a revenue generating route. This targeted alerting is completely customizable by the fleet, saving it time, money, and aggravation, while optimizing the servicing of its tires.”
