ATLAS utilizes an internal lithium-ion battery to ensure that the main monitoring of essential components occurs even when the vehicle has no power.

TPMS, tracking, and security in an unpowered vehicle guarantees peace of mind and more efficiency in fleet operations.

Managers can keep track of where their trailers are, and the tires are at the ideal pressure before the day starts.

Ensuring the axle load distribution remains below the vehicle limit is legally required. Multi-drop loads have a continuously changing weight distribution that is easy for drivers to miss, leaving them at axle overload risk. The solution is axle load monitoring, which constantly records the axle and gross weight changes over the day, allowing drivers to distribute their loads safely and legally.

Tracking

Track and monitor vehicle location even when the vehicle is without power. Journey health tracking monitors each trip for distance and time (CPK) combined with a clean bill of health for monitored features like TPMS, axle load, and wheel loss.

Of significant concern, and a globally recognized issue, is wheel detachment from vehicles, in particular heavy commercial vehicles. A wheel detaching from a commercial vehicle in motion can accelerate up to 150 km/h. This has been compared to a bouncing bomb by academics. The tire can reach heights of up to 50 meters before colliding with others on the road, with force equivalent to around 10 tons.

Hub and Brake Temperature Monitoring

Temperature monitoring helps to detect brake or hub problems. The wheel loss sensor also monitors heat and quickly identifies any temperature abnormalities from the hub or brakes. Alerts are sent when the temperature rises above 100 °C – a temperature indicative of maintenance issues, including hub failure or sticking brakes.
