Tyre pressure control is vital to provide trucks and trailers with enhanced mobility, fuel efficiency as well as optimised mileage and extended tyre service life. For this reason, Goodyear is launching DrivePoint, a very user-friendly tyre pressure monitoring system.
DrivePoint joins the existing TPMS and Drive-Over-Reader smart tyre monitoring solutions within Goodyear’s Total Mobility end-to-end value proposition also including tyres and a pan-European service network.
The Goodyear DrivePoint comprises on-valve tire pressure sensors and on-yard battery-powered receivers that read the pressure status in all the tires instantly while a vehicle is driving through them.
Collected data is uploaded to the Goodyear cloud providing easy access and reporting via the Goodyear Fleet Manager mobile and web IOS and Android friendly applications. If the pressure is below the recommended level the fleet manager receives an immediate alert in order to avoid a potential tire incident that could result in a vehicle stoppage and breakdown costs.
