The "Internationaler busplaner Nachhaltigkeitspreis 2019” honors innovative companies and products that address the challenges of global sustainability. The Goodyear ‘Drive-Over-Reader’, an automated automatic tire analysis and control system obtained the first price in the ‘Tires and Tire Management category.

"The team is very proud to receive this prestigious award! It recognizes Goodyear’s technology leadership marked by a full trusted tire range in combination with an added value suite of digital solutions for tire and fleet management," said André Weisz, Managing Director of Goodyear Proactive Solutions EMEA.

Thomas Sauer, Marketing Specialist Goodyear Proactive Solutions EMEA had the honor to receive the industry award for Goodyear at the award ceremony in Berlin on March 18, 2018.

The Drive-Over-Reader Technology

The Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader is a state-of-the-art, ground-mounted sensor. The system automatically measures and analyzes important tire and vehicle parameters: inflation, remaining tread depth, axle load and total weight are displayed in seconds.

The state-of-the-art technology Drive-Over-Reader technology provides real-time tire data and alerts can be automatically sent to the fleet manager, service technician and the driver. This data supports to proactively monitor the tire and the efficiency of the fleet.  It further enables fleet operators to maximize uptime, forecast maintenance when the vehicle is not in service and to establish a long-term tire replacement planning.

The identification of potential tire issues at an early stage contributes to maximizing the performance and mileage of the tire and the fleet.   "The Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader is particularly suitable for public transport companies. Every time a bus enters the depot it will drive over the sensor and the system will precisely identify and resolve tire-related issues before they even happen." explains André Weisz. 

Correct tire pressure decreases unnecessary CO2 emissions

Low tire pressure leads to increased fuel consumption and unnecessary CO2 emissions. A truck operation on tires inflated in the correct way can save up to € 694 per year compared to a truck traveling at 1.5 bar under-pressure. This corresponds to a saving of 510 liters of fuel and 1,330 kilograms less CO2 emissions [1].

[1]  Internal estimate based on a 40-tonne 4x2 tractor with tri-axle trailer operating in long haul service; with an average fuel consumption of 30l/100 km; based on a diesel price of €1.36 per liter including VAT; with an annual mileage of 100,000 km. Actual results may vary based on - but not restricted to - road and weather conditions, driving style, wear conditions, tire size, tire pressure and vehicle maintenance.
