Tyrewatch technology

The Motor Transport Awards have announced the shortlist of finalists for 2021 and TyreWatch have been nominated as one of the contenders for the innovation award. 

Tyrewatch Nominated for Innovation Award  

Established over 5 years ago in Basingstoke, TyreWatch is an evolving digital tyre management platform which uses remote telematics technology to monitor and manage the wheels and tyres of ‘connected’ vehicles. 

The TPMS (tyre pressure management system) is already widely used in the UK and other countries by HGV, PSV, Plant and LCV operators to reduce fuel, tyre and maintenance costs while cutting downtime, CO2, particulate emissions and the risk of breakdown or accidents. 

Director Glenn Sherwood summarises what lead to the creation of their innovative product, “Our development team recognised the problems experienced by fleets when managing their drivers’ 15-minute daily walk-round vehicle checks and, based on industry research, we determined that 40% of daily checks were not being conducted properly. 

The Motor Transport Awards 2021 Winners will be announced at West London's most prestigious venue - The Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 2 September 2021.
