MILAN, Italy Pirelli presented its new Cyber Fleet System for industrial vehicles in São Paulo, at the eve of the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Brazil. Thanks to electronic sensors applied to the inner surface of the tires and a telematic box that collects data and sends it to a central infrastructure, the system is able to constantly monitor the conditions of the tires, informing the operators of industrial vehicle fleets, in real time through an Internet application of their main operating parameters (pressure, temperature), the company said.
Magneti Marelli contributes to the Cyber Fleet System by supplying the telematic box for real-time data collection and transmission.
The monitoring carried out by the Cyber Fleet System offers tangible advantages in terms of fuel consumption and safety, since the conditions of the tires and, specifically, their inflation pressure, have a considerable impact on wear and on rolling resistance, determining appreciable changes in terms of fuel consumption, vehicle control, braking distances and useful life of the tires, Magneti Marelli said. The system allows a tangible optimization of the management costs of industrial vehicle fleets. The marketing of the Cyber Fleet System will now start in Brazil and will gradually be extended to other South American countries.
