Tire, battery monitoring technology for 8600
Aug 1, 2006 12:00 PM
International Truck and Engine Corp has demonstrated a new tire and battery monitoring technology that will be introduced on its International 8600 model.
A high-resolution on-board color display screen makes it easy for drivers to check tire pressure and battery health. Optional exterior cameras to reveal blind spots and provide assistance when backing can also feed images into the on-board information display. The tire pressure monitoring system quickly and accurately identifies tire temperature and pressure. This system relies on International's multiplexed electrical system and pressure sensors. The battery monitor provides drivers with information on battery voltage and state of charge for engine cranking.
These new features were demonstrated at the National Private Truck Council's Annual Education Management Conference in Nashville TN earlier in 2006.
