Continental Introduces ContiConnect Live Solutions and Generation II Tire Sensors


Continental Tires recently introduced new ContiConnect Live cloud-based solutions to assist fleets in real-time, intelligent digital tire monitoring of all vehicles in the fleet.

According to the TMC Technology and Maintenance Council S.2 Tire and Wheel Study Group, properly inflated tires benefit from a 15% longer tread life, 20% longer casing life and 1% increase in fuel efficiency. An emergency road service event can exceed $1,000 and result in up to 4 hours of downtime.

“At Continental we believe that in the B2B space, we are shifting to a digitalization model where connected products and services are the key to fleet efficiency and profitability,” said Shaun Uys, head of Continental U.S. Market Truck Tires Replacement. “Our intelligent digital solutions are the future of tire management and allow us to partner with the fleet and the tire dealer to adapt to specific customer needs and not an ‘off-the-shelf’ product. This is exactly what fleets are seeking today.”

Continental tire sensors collect data from inside the tires and forwards it to a telematics unit or Bluetooth dongle and driver app. The data is transmitted to the ContiConnect web portal in real time. The information can then be viewed on a computer or mobile device. The information can be used for truck and trailer monitoring or stand-alone trailer monitoring. Any of these solutions coupled with the Continental tire portfolio will enhance the life of the tires but also suits any tire brand.

ContiConnect Gen II sensors provide true casing temperature allowing preventative actions to prolong tire life. The sensor is mounted to the inner liner of the tire and is brand agnostic. Available from the factory in new tires, the sensor lasts approximately 4 years to minimize service disruptions.
