A new tire and battery monitoring technology will be available on International Truck and Engine Corporation’s 8600 model, used primarily by regional haul fleets.
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, the company says. The 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.
