In addition to details on Dana's technology, charts in the white paper help illustrate the data presented, including the impact of underinflated tires on fuel economy and a comparison of benefits between monitor-only systems and Dana's optimized tire-pressure management technology.
Dana has been a longstanding leader in tire-pressure optimization, with decades of experience engineering tire-pressure management technology for the U.S. military. Building on this expertise, Dana's tire-pressure optimization system overcomes the significant challenges that other systems for linehaul trucks do not currently address.
Dana's system eliminates dependence on the malfunction indicator lamp to alert the driver to potential problems, freeing the driver from making judgment calls that could affect safety and efficiency. Additionally, drivers can spend more time on the road and less time stopping to check the pressure of each tire. The system will adjust tire pressure as needed and record each occurrence, alerting maintenance personnel to examine seemingly minor issues and address larger problems before a major failure occurs.
Available in 2017, Dana's system is optimized for use with 6x4, 6x2, and 4x2 configurations. The first integrated system of its kind, the technology will be installed at the OEM level and is compatible with J1587 and J1939 SAE communication protocols.
Overall savings will vary from fleet to fleet depending on a variety of factors, including the number of miles driven annually and truck configuration, along with average fuel prices, service expenses, and tire-replacement costs.
