LSM Technology’s TyreGuard Tyre Monitoring System technology is all about heavy vehicle safety.
Truck / Trailer and other heavy vehicle fires, well offs, roll- overs, etc are on the rise and so mitigations control technology are now becoming under renewed focus by Australian regulators, legislators, and other organisations.
An example is the recent ARTSA-institute “truck fires program- reducing risk of heavy vehicle fires” sponsored by LSM Technologies and funded by the NHVR managed national heavy vehicle safety initiative grant, so as enhance public and workplace safety for the transport industry.
This is where LSM Technologies fits in, as its ability to offer Tyre Monitoring Systems that are a proven state of the art mitigation technology that make sense for modern heavy vehicles travelling on Australian roads.
LSM TyreGuard® TMSystems are a unique piece of technology that helps all heavy vehicle drivers assess the state of the vehicle’s tyre’s and provide alerts of any potential risks or dangers to the driver before an accident can occur on roads.
LSM TyreGuard® provide a range of decades of field proven TMSystems that cover all types of heavy vehicles. LSM TyreGuard® MTR360 is one of the most advanced TMSystems for multi- truck and trailer combinations integrated with the vehicle to ensure tyre pressure and temperatures dangers can be picked up quicker than ever before to allow drivers to avoid serious situations whilst on the road.
Founded in 2002 and featuring many Australian owned and developed safety mitigation controls, LSM’s technology works by integrating with existing vehicles systems to monitor live tyre Pressure and Temperature data.
Tyre pressure and temperature data is transmitted from robust wireless, valve-stem mounted tyre Sensors that then constantly display data on LSM’s TyreGuard® In Cabin Monitor mounted inside the driver’s cabin.
The TMSystems Monitor provides alerts and warnings directly to the driver against various low tyre pressure, fast leaks, high pressure, temperature problems that can occur while driving across Australia and provides the driver with data to take immediate corrective action.
Another unique and Australian designed LSM technology is their FSM® Fleet Safety (Tracking) Manager telematics which is an intuitive web browser with a single click access to fleet dashboards, customisable reports, compliance tools as well as real time user defined alerts for remote access anywhere in the world.
LSM’s TyreGuard® technology aims to help maximise tyre service life on trucks, avoid wheel well fires due to locked brakes, avoid blow- outs, explosions (pyrolysis) and wheel offs whilst also optimising fuel efficiency to cut costs and enhance vehicle braking and traction control.
But this technology can also save extensive labour costs required to check and monitor tyre pressures, enhance productivity, eliminate schedule delays, and avoid dangerous events to prioritise safety.
The LSM TyreGuard® MTR360 can monitor up to 9 x tow vehicles and 180 tyre sensors on large multi- truck / trailer combination rigs and low loaders. Other LSM TyreGuard® TMSystems are available to suit other heavy vehicles on our roads such as buses, cranes, waste trucks, defence- emergency vehicles, sweepers, road construction and many more,
With so much emphasis being placed on heavy vehicle safety currently to ensure drivers and the public are kept in the safest possible conditions, LSM Technology’s TMSystems technology is only a part of the evolving safety mitigation technologies that may be mandated on all Australian heavy vehicles going forward.
For example, TfNSW BC17/18562 specification mandates TMSystems for all Bus operated within NSW since 2017, where LSM Technologies have provide their mitigation technology for up to 4,000 buses to date.
Further proposed Australian Design Rules (ADRs) and vehicle specifications are being established on heavy vehicles to improve safety for the workplace and public. There are the likes of ADR 97/00 for automatic emergency braking to avoid high speed rear end crashes, ADR 108/00 for reversing technologies and the TS160 (buses) for ParkBrake failsafe and elimination of uncontrolled rollaway.
LSM (life saving mitigation) technologies are also developing other Australian designed, made, and produced mitigation controls with their upcoming LSM Sentinel® VSS Vehicle Safety System. This unique and to be internationally patented technology will provide for an array of mitigation devices for the above ADR and vehicle specification compliance to also include dashcam recording, driver behaviour monitoring, advanced driver assistance, cabin environmental monitoring, anti- theft / authorised access control, etc-all integrated into a single central logics controller and in- cabin display.
