TPMS or tyre pressure monitoring systems are used on manned and autonomous machines to ensure tyre pressures and temperatures stay within operational specifications.
Why is TPMS Important?
Tyre pressures are affected by temperature and temperature in turn affects pressure. Pressure is what carries the load on a truck and the tyres and rims are the vessel that contains the pressure. If the pressure is too low, the sidewall flexes resulting in increased temperatures.
TyreSense uses actual data from the internal tyre sensor readings to determine when corrective action is required. Studies demonstrate a stronger correlation between the tyre chamber temperature and the belt temperature than the TKPH model. To find out more about TPMS versus TKPH, click here.

TyreSense is fully designed, developed, and manufactured in-house by experienced RIMEX staff who stay closely connected to our clients and their needs. This flexibility allows us to adapt and respond quickly to all customer requirements. Our comprehensive software provides everything you need to monitor your entire fleet, ensuring you’re always in touch.
We have now had TyreSense operational in the business for approximately four months and have seen lots of cost and safety advantages in our fleet. I cannot disclose exact costings but can say that the cost to implement the system on sixteen 930E haul trucks and four 777 water carts was paid back within three and a half months just by utilising the trucks more efficiently and as an effect increasing the overall availability.
