Technology company and
manufacturer of premium tyres Continental presented the further development of
its digital tyre monitoring platform at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA)
Commercial Vehicles in Hanover.
ContiConnect Live, available
from the second quarter of 2019, informs operators of truck and bus fleets
immediately if there is a problem with the temperature or pressure of a tyre,
even when the vehicle is on the road. The data is transferred to the servers
and the web portal by the ContiConnect Driver app, which is also new. Before
the end of this year, the app will be able to show tyre information on Daimler Fleetboard
and TomTom Telematics devices as well as other Android devices, such as
smartphones and tablets, initially in the driver’s cab. With ContiConnect Live,
Continental presented a further development of the portfolio that has already
been successfully launched in 15 markets as ContiConnect Yard, which works
using a yard reader station in the fleet yard.
In the presentation,
Continental Executive Board member and head of the Tyre division Nikolai Setzer
said: “ContiConnect Live integrates our digital solutions for commercial

customers can thus embark on digital tyre management on the basis of their
existing devices. Finally, we are enabling them to draw an even greater benefit

deviations from the ideal status, ContiConnect sends notifications and suggests
corrective measures. The system also delivers reports on tire performance and
the overall efficiency of the fleet.
