New platform to keep wheels on track

TyreWatch has introduced a unique tyre management platform with a range of monitoring systems which enables fleet managers to reduce running costs and increase safety.

AutoAlign is a dynamic vehicle monitoring system designed to combat wheel misalignment, which affects around 33% of all commercial vehicles in the UK, while the VanSmart tyre monitoring system optimises fleet efficiency to improve safety and reduce running costs for light commercial vehicle operators.

According to industry research gathered by TyreWatch, there are 18.7 million vehicles operating with incorrect wheel alignment – a potentially dangerous and costly condition which can go undetected for months. Normally it takes a scheduled maintenance interval or manual vehicle check to detect any problems.

However, AutoAlign continuously monitors each vehicle and detects any wheel alignment issues as soon as they occur, while automatically notifying management.

Mark Longden, co-founder of TyreWatch, said: “This new technology enables vehicle operators to remotely identify any misalignment issues before they become a serious and costly problem.”
