  • New Intread Tire Sensor Offers Multiple Benefits to Mining Operators

    Rosler, the German company which is one of the leading specialists in OTR tires has launched an innovative new TPMS system named “INTREAD” after three years of development and testing. For the first time ever, it will be possible to use an OTR TPMS system to measure the tread depth as well as the belt temperature giving mining fleet owners and operators unprecedented benefits. The In tread Tire sensor is different from other TPMS systems as in addition to tire pressure, it enables operators to get real time information on the tread depth and belt temperature of every tire in their vehicle. This will help them to get optimal tire performance and save costs on fuel and maintenance of tires. The Intread system essentially consists of three components: two sensors for monitoring air pressure and air temperature which are placed on the inner liner of the tire and a third sensor which is placed in the tread to measure the tread depth and the belt temperature.

  • BMW Expands X Range with X4 Sports Activity Coupé

    BMW first introduced the Sports Activity Vehicle segment back in 1999 with the launch of the X5. This sparked a new trend in the automotive industry and led to the production of many variants of the X5 including the BMW X1, X3, X5, X5 M, X6 and X6 M. The latest addition to the X series is the new BMW X4. The X4 offers the perfect blend of performance, versatility and elegance. The exterior of the X4 has the typical characteristics of the X range including the large air intakes located on the outer edges of the front end and the precise detailing of the character lines in the front apron giving the X4 a sleeker, sportier look. The car hugs the road with a low center of gravity, long wheelbase and prominent wheel arches. The roofline adds to the sporty look, reaching its highest point over the front seats before dropping in a gentle slope towards the tailgate. The interior is ergonomically designed with every control option angled towards the driver. It is spacious for a sports car and offers the right combination of exclusivity and high-level functionality. The car has plenty of cargo space (500–1,400 litres), which can be used in multiple ways due to the standard 40:20:40 split rear seat bench and the automatically opening tailgate which is a standard feature. Customers can also opt for Comfort Access Option which will allow them to open the tailgate with a movement of the foot. The BMW X4 comes with the BMW ConnectedDrive features that offer an array of Driver Assistance systems to give the driver with unmatched safety, convenience and infotainment. This includes the hi-res, full-colour Head-Up Display, which allows the driver to view all important driving information in his field of view.
