Saving man-hour costs and vehicle downtime with predictive technology

Whether operating a single vehicle or an entire fleet, cost efficiency is important to optimise business profitability. TIREMATICS data tracks tyre pressure and temperature to ensure optimum operation levels for tyres.

Properly-diagnosed tyres, for example, not only enhance safety and fuel efficiency, they also extend tyre life. With predictive maintenance there is a reduction in tyre inspection and maintenance workloads, cutting back on downtime traditionally associated with manual tyre inspections and saving considerable man-hours. All these have significant cost implications, both for drivers and fleet operators.

Through regular tyre monitoring too, tyres can be sent to retread when they reach the optimal tread depth – maximising the retread tyre life and optimising economic value of all tyres.

Finally, with easy access to tyre data, Bridgestone is able to use the data collected as a basis for research to develop even better quality subsequent models at optimal cost.
