RICHMOND, B.C. — Haldex Brake Controls has teamed up with SmarTire Systems to integrate Smartire’s tire measurement system into Haldex’s ABS/EBS heavy-duty vehicle systems.
Haldex says it inked the deal because continuous tire pressure measurement is increasingly important in the trucking industry and direct pressure measurement is the favoured technique.
B.C.-based SmarTire supplies direct tire measurement technology primarily in the passenger car market. Haldex plans on taking that technology and implementing it into its commercial vehicle systems. The two companies will jointly develop the technology for future applications. The technology will be marketed by Haldex to OEMs and in the aftermarket as well.
