WheelRight tyre management system
Under-inflated tyres are a widespread, global issue that impact road and driver safety. Indeed, across Europe alone, under-inflated tyres contribute to 9% of all fatal road accidents and 41% of serious injury road accidents, according to EU data.

UK company WheelRight will be at Intertraffic Amsterdam with a proven automatic tyre condition management system that can address such issues.

The company’s Drive-Through Tyre Management system automatically measures and records the pressure in a vehicle’s tyres. In addition, it can assess the vehicle’s weight, load distribution, and tyre temperature. The system is connected to an automatic number plate recognition camera so the data can be assigned to the correct vehicle and transmitted by SMS to the driver or to the fleet engineer or fleet management system. The system is easy to use, with no equipment to fit to the vehicle.

The company’s technology has been used by Highways England, which manages England’s motorway and major roads network, who wanted a technology that would quickly measure the tyre pressures of any random vehicle. Two of WheelRight’s drive-through bays have been installed at a leading motorway service station which has been monitoring both cars and commercial vehicles.
