Global Michelin licensee Wheely-Safe has secured a second national award for its pioneering Michelin Wheel Safe technology after winning the Fleet Safety Product (in-vehicle) category at the Brake Fleet Safety Awards 2019.
Wheel Safe Wins Brake Fleet Safety Award
Michelin Wheel Safe is the world’s first in-motion driver alert system to detect the onset of wheel loss from commercial vehicles before detachment. It also incorporates a sensor to warn against brake and hub overheating, together with a full tyre pressure management system (TPMS) to give drivers and fleet managers added peace of mind.
Wheely-Safe overcame tough competition from five other finalists to win the title, which recognised its technology for having done the most to improve fleet safety. The success follows just four months after winning the Transport Technology of the Year category at the National Technology Awards 2019.
Sarah Plumb, Senior Fleet Officer at Brake, the road safety charity, said: “A huge congratulations to Wheely-Safe for their win at the Brake Fleet Safety Awards. The judges were impressed with the product’s simple yet effective solution that helps fleets prevent potentially catastrophic road crashes, whilst also reducing major causes of commercial vehicle fires and vehicle downtime.”
