A full set of information collected by the sensors and sent by created for this purpose platforms, is visualized on the multifunction color display, MVF Continental. The display without any restrictions allows for constant supervision over all trolleys and wheels located on them.
The driver constantly receives information about pressure and temperature in all wheels. At the same time the display has a driver friendly software. It also enables a convenient overview of tyres at stop, so that potential parameters can be improved before driving (in case the risk threshold is approaching).We used not only numeric values but also colours for easier reception of information by the driver.
When green colour is displayed – the driver knows that pressure and temperature parameters are within the standard. When the wheel reaches the risk threshold it will change into orange (it is necessary to start preventive actions). And when a critical failure occurs, the wheel turns red ( it is necessary to stop the vehicle and fix the fault). Additionally, a red bar with information about the problem appears at the bottom of display and an acoustic signal is activated in order to secure potential oversight of the message on the screen by the driver.
If an orange or red level appears at the same time for several wheels and trolleys, the information will be available at once and the primary information about a bad condition will be assigned to the tyre which at a given moment has reached the most critical level. If the wheel on display turns grey, it means that there is no communication between the wheel and sensor. Display software provides day/night mode- while night driving display extinguishes and automatically activates when there is a notification.
Multitasking of MVF is also manifested by overview of information coming from alcohol interlocks (alkolock), digital tachygraph and camera systems. Moreover, while using gyro it is possible to display composition of the load, thus we know if the critical tilt value is exceeded. Together with telematics systems all above mentioned data can be sent to a technical car or to the headquarter creating a historical report.
