The Dossier Tire Management System automates tire-data collection and reporting using a new handheld tread-depth and air-pressure device called Dossier Tire Probe. Scan a vehicle’s bar code with the Pocket Dossier PDA. After scanning a particular tire, the mechanic uses Dossier Tire Probe to electronically measure the air pressure and tread depth, which is wirelessly transmitted to Pocket Dossier worn on his belt. Pocket Dossier wirelessly transmits all of the tire data in real time to the computer running the full Dossier software system in the shop. The system automatically alerts the mechanic with an audible sound and warning screen if a tire is at or below its low air pressure or minimum tread depth.
