Goodyear is launching a new and “very user-friendly” tyre pressure monitoring system for HGVs and trailers. With DrivePoint joining the existing TPMS and Drive-Over-Reader smart tyre monitoring solutions within Goodyear’s Total Mobility portfolio, the company can now offer three alternatives.
Sumitomo Rubber Industries (SRI), manufacturer of the Falken tyre brand, recently began proof-of-concept testing for a new kind of tyre pressure management solutions service that remotely monitors tyre pressure and temperature. Through this testing project, SRI will evaluate the service’s efficacy in supporting safer driving, specifically its effectiveness in reducing maintenance time and workload and preventing operator error. SRI says the project contributes towards its “ultimate aim” of establishing a business model that “helps to enhance the safety and economy of driving.”
Michelin will unveil its wireless tyre pressure management system at Automechanika Birmingham 6-8 June. The accessory will be distributed by Fit2Go, and is designed to be user-friendly; it can be installed in under three minutes.
