New app simplifies pre-trip tire inspections

June 12, 2023
Drivers can quickly perform pre-trip tire inspections while fleets can receive tire health updates when drivers are on the road.

Aperia Technologies, a supplier of tire management technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, has launched Halo Drive, an automated pre-trip tire inspection tool to deliver comprehensive tire health insights to drivers.

Geared to drivers of Halo Connect-equipped trucks, Halo Drive enables pre-trip tire inspections to be completed in seconds logging the date, time, and tire health. Two-way communication allows necessary tire service to be scheduled ahead of time instead of on the side of the road.

“Halo Drive rounds out the Halo Connect experience by engaging drivers and simplifying pre-trip tire inspections–possibly the least enjoyed but most critical aspect of downtime avoidance,” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia Technologies. “Halo Drive can be customized to alert drivers to critical tire issues that occur in route so service can be scheduled and downtime avoided.”

The Halo Connect tire management platform was launched three years ago to deliver actionable tire health insights to fleet managers through proprietary algorithms built on over 50 billion miles. The system remains the only tool that assesses tire health, categorizes issues by severity, and provides estimated safe drive time on each tire before service must be performed. Halo Drive ensures these insights are delivered to both drivers and fleet managers to streamline fleet-wide tire management.

The mobile app focused on tire pressure management for fleet drivers, includes the following features:Driver Features● Pre-trip tire inspections can be completed in under a minute from any mobile device.● Real-time tire health alerts are delivered to drivers.● Drivers are notified of hardware issues that would require a manual pre-trip inspection.Fleet Manager Features● Filter information sent to the driver, to show them only what is necessary.● Review the pre-trip inspection history by vehicle in the web portal.● Tell your drivers how you would like them to respond to time alerts directly in the Halo Drive app.

The Halo Drive app will be featured in a solutions catalog by Platform Sciencea connected vehicle platform.

“Aperia has revolutionized tire management technology, and the addition of their cutting-edge tire inspection app, Halo Drive, to our growing fleet solutions catalog offers a critical tool to fleet operators that provides elevated safety alerts and a vital efficiency boost,” said Joe Jumayao, VP of Business Development, Platform Science. "...with the addition of Aperia’s Halo Drive app, our customers have another choice and can utilize yet another best-in-class solution alongside other technology from the Platform Science ecosystem that meets their specific needs.”
