Tire-Related Incidents: In the harsh mining environment, tires are subjected to extreme conditions, including rugged terrain, heavy loads, and abrasive materials. Tire failures can lead to vehicle accidents, costly downtime, and maintenance expenses.
Safety Concerns: Tire blowouts or sudden pressure losses in large mining vehicles can pose significant safety risks to both operators and the surrounding workforce.
Operational Efficiency: Downtime due to tire-related incidents or unscheduled maintenance can disrupt mining operations, leading to production losses and increased costs.
Manual Inspection: Monitoring tire pressure in a large fleet of vehicles was time-consuming and costly, as it typically involved manual inspections. This was especially challenging in remote mining sites where access to vehicles was limited.
