Automotive tyre company Continental has announced the Middle East launch of ContiPressureCheck, a tyre pressure and temperature monitoring system for buses and trucks.

The ContiPressureCheck system consists of four main components: tyre sensors mounted on the tyre inner liner inside a rubber housing to continuously measure tyre temperature and pressure; central control unit to evaluate tyre sensor signals and send the status of all the vehicle’s tyres to the driver’s display screen; driver display positioned inside the vehicle to shows tyre pressure, temperature and provide the driver with warning alerts; and telematics integration.

The regional roll-out of the system comes in line with recent regulations issued by the GCC authorities to achieve maximum safety, preserve the lives of road users and reduce injuries from vehicle accidents, especially trucks. 

Juan Uruburu, head of sales, commercial vehicle tyres, Continental Middle East, said: "Under-inflated tyres lead to higher operating costs. The new ContiPressureCheck system continuously measures the pressure and temperature of all tyres on vehicles, even while driving.

"This helps to save fuel and reduce the risk of tyre failure."
