This week, the Torque team were at IAA 2018 in Hanover, supporting both Continental and DAF. While Continental used the show to present its new ContiConnect Live system and its new e.MotionPro tyre, DAF’s stand centred around a line-up of three new low-emission trucks. Take a look at our roundup below…
Demonstrating its expertise beyond tyres, Continental used the IAA to present ContiConnect Live. Available in Q2 2019, the technology immediately informs operators of truck and bus fleets if there is a problem with the temperature or pressure of a tyre, even when the vehicle is on the road. The data is transferred to servers and the web portal via the new ContiConnect Driver app. Before the end of this year, the app will be able to show tyre information on Daimler Fleetboard and TomTom Telematics, as well as other Android devices, initially in the driver’s cab.
ContiConnect Live presents an extension to its existing digital tyre monitoring platform, building on the success of ContiConnect Yard. Launched across Europe last year and more recently in the UK this year, the system measures the pressure of tyres using a yard reader station in the fleet yard.
