With ContiConnect Live, the collected data on tire pressure and temperature are sent in real time to a cloud using a central telematics unit.
Continental has launched ContiConnect Live, a digital tyre pressure monitoring solution designed to complement ContiPressureCheck and ContiConnect Yard.
With ContiConnect Live, the collected data on tire pressure and temperature are sent in real time to a cloud using a central telematics unit. In addition, the unit transmits the vehicle's location using GPS and records the operating hours of the tires. Fleet managers have a quicker and more comfortable overview of the condition of the vehicles regardless of their location, said Continental in a release.
By evaluating the information, the fleet benefits from reduced downtimes, lower maintenance costs and an extended operating time. ContiConnect Live is available for all special tires from Continental equipped with sensor technology.
The application will first be rolled out in Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, UK, Sweden, Norway, France and Portugal. Other European markets will follow.
According to Continental, the intelligent tire from Continental measures inflation pressure and temperature with the factory-fitted sensor inside the tire. The sensor data are sent in real time to the integrated central telematics unit.

From there, the data is transferred to the cloud, where it can be accessed via the web portal. In the web portal, a detailed view of the vehicle including alarm, pressure and temperature history as well as GPS data and operating hours is made available.
If the data is not ideal, fleet managers are proactively informed via SMS or email, which minimizes flat tires and increases the safety of drivers and vehicles. This enables fleet managers to monitor tires flexibly, regardless of where the vehicles are located.
