Pedigree Technologies has expanded its gateway offerings to include an affordable, easy-to-install solar tracker with the capability to receive Bluetooth data from the ConMet Digital SmartAir™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor.
Combining Bluetooth solutions with an array of tracking devices solves a few of the primary technology pain points facing fleets: easy installation, a responsive data platform for both drivers and management, and reliable and affordable device options.
The innovative Bluetooth SmartAir™ TPMS sensor solves these pain points. The sensor data can be picked up by the solar gateway or a variety of other trackers offered by Pedigree. And Pedigree's OneView™ platform provides real-time tire pressure alerts to drivers and fleet managers.
Finally, installation is extremely fast and simple. Simply unscrew the valve cap, screw on the SmartAir™ TPMS sensor and connect to the cloud. Typically, Pedigree's ELD will pick up the inflation pressure data from the truck tires. The trailer tire data will be received by our GPS solar tracker, which is easily applied with quick-install automotive adhesive.
"Connecting the unconnected sounds simple but is very challenging without the right technology," says John Elsner, CEO of Pedigree. "By collaborating with partners such as ConMet Digital, we can offer best-in-class and affordable solutions such as the SmartAir™ TPMS sensor, which provides an immediate financial return to fleets."
According to a study by the US Department of Energy, a 10% under inflation of tires can lead to a 1.5% decrease in fuel economy. By using Pedigree's OneView™ platform and SmartAir™ TPMS sensors to ensure proper tire inflation, fleets have the potential to minimize their carbon footprint while saving in fuel costs.
The OneView platform supports the full suite of ConMet's Digital products, including the PreSet Plus® SmartHub™, SmartAir™ Axle Load, and SmartAir™ Line Pressure. These solutions offer fleet managers and customers greater visibility into the health of wheel hubs, tires, air lines, and axles, resulting in improved uptime and safety.
"Partnering with Pedigree not only fuels synergy in data-driven innovation, but also empowers us to deliver unprecedented value to our customers," said Paul Washicko, Vice President and General Manager of ConMet Digital.
In addition to tire pressure monitoring and other ConMet Digital products, Pedigree offers a wide range of Bluetooth devices for monitoring temperature, humidity, and the movements of assets, attachments and vehicles. These solutions are highly configurable to meet a variety of operating environments.
Pedigree Technologies' OneView platform is an open IoT solution to track, monitor, diagnose, and communicate with high-value assets in real time, providing a full suite of digital solutions. For more information about this release or Pedigree Technologies

Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq: DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics division of Etihad Airways, has further automated air cargo processes using Descartes’ next generation Internet of Things (IoT) Bluetooth® Low Energy solution integrated with Jettainer’s unit load device (ULD) management services. The combined solutions expand Etihad Cargo’s ability to improve ground processes at cargo and ULD handling and to gain data-driven insights into the transport and ambient conditions of air cargo in transit.
“At Etihad Cargo, we’re continuing to invest in technology and innovation to make air cargo handling more efficient, smarter and faster, and this includes the usage and management of our ULD fleet,” said Thomas Schürmann, Head of Cargo Operations & Delivery at Etihad Cargo. “The addition of Descartes’ next generation IoT devices to our ULD fleet provides true operational value for us. Etihad Cargo expects to reduce the number of lost ULDs—those that lose their trail somewhere at the airport, at the ground handling agent or the forwarder—by being able to tell exactly where they were last seen. We furthermore expect to simplify ground processes, for example, by reducing the time and effort spent on stock take.”
“As part of our premium product, ULD Select, the combination of our sophisticated ULD management solution with Descartes’ next generation IoT devices can be a powerful boost to our service. The technology can provide our valued customers like Etihad Cargo insights into the conditions of their freight, give access to detailed location information, facilitate ULD processing on the ground, and thus further improve asset utilization,” said Ram Krishnaswamy, General Manager Middle East, Africa, & Indian Subcontinent at Jettainer. “Jettainer embraces innovation and digitalization, and this is exactly what we experience with Descartes as the leading technical provider in the field of Bluetooth® Low Energy tracking solutions. Potential benefits are not limited to ULD processing; we also see value in streamlining export, transit and import cargo processes and will explore this further with our customers and partners.”
Descartes’ next generation IoT Bluetooth® Low Energy ULD tracking uses Bluetooth® tags affixed to containers or pallets, mobile applications and mesh networks to automate end-to-end tracking of assets. Bluetooth® tags affixed to ULDs prior to loading enable easy access to real-time location information, shipment-level condition data, such as temperature, light, humidity and movement, and chain of custody detail that indicates whose custody assets are in at any given time. Tags can also be added to any ground service equipment, like dollies, for full control over a carrier’s equipment.
“We’re pleased to help Etihad Cargo optimize the use of its ULD fleet with richer visibility at both the asset and shipment level,” said Scott Sangster, General Manager, Logistics Service Providers at Descartes. “ULDs are the backbone of the air cargo supply chain and, with coverage in over 1,300 reader locations and 200 airports worldwide, Descartes’ innovations in IoT-based tracking and advanced network capabilities are helping airlines access the status of their ULDs anytime, anywhere—through any internet-enabled device.”
