Europe-wide, almost 400 locations in selected service areas will set up on the main arteries of the freight of load. This CLASSIS measurement points capture the tire data and transmit them to authorized recipients via SMS or Internet-based data transfer.
At the same time learn, for example, the Flottendienstleister as well as the freight forwarder whether the truck, the straight break in Herbolzheim makes with the correct tire pressure is on the way. Or whether it needs new front left tyre; or whether he must check the alignment at the first axle of the trailer.

There are already similar to good Reifendruckprufungs systems in on-board units, the so-called TPMS.

CLASSIS (pay per use) costs only per crossing, which can be applied depending on the agreement even by the tyre.
