ContiConnect is Continental's digital tire monitoring platform for commercial fleets, now available in select markets worldwide. By digitalizing your tire monitoring activities with ContiConnect, you can ensure increased uptime and lower maintenance costs as well as maximize fuel savings. Tire sensors mounted onto the inner liner transmit tire pressure and temperature data to a yard reader station and report the status to a web portal. Further, you can capture the tire data with the hand-held tool and manually upload it to the web portal - this helps in case the vehicles do not return frequently to dedicated check-points or are not in range of the yard reader station. With ContiConnect you can receive customizable notifications so that you can address tire-pressure issues in real-time and avoid costly breakdowns.
ContiConnect enables you to remotely monitor tire pressure and temperature in real-time and notifies you in case of urgent alerts. In doing so it prevents tire-related breakdowns and generates value by increasing the vehicle's uptime.
The yard reader station is the connectivity component of ContiConnect that receives the data from the tire sensors within a yard and transmits it via cellular connection to the backend. The yard reader station is installed at the fleet's frequent touch points, like a washing bay, gas station or other check-points within the yard. It reads the data off the tire sensors and sends it to the backend where it is analyzed and interpreted.
The installation manual for the yard reader station can be found here.
The hand-held tool is needed for initialization of ContiConnect. This component is used to assign each tire sensor to the respective wheel position of the vehicle. It connects wirelessly to the tire sensors. Further, you can also use the hand-held tool to import tire data to the web portal without a yard reader station.
