WheelRight is a privately owned, Oxford based, technology company. We design and manufacture a unique product that enables in-motion tyre pressure monitoring, axle weighing and tyre temperature recording. All that a vehicle has to do is: ‘Just Drive Over.’
We believe our solution looks set to revolutionise tyre management across the globe given its advantages over traditional tyre pressure monitoring practices.
On a moving vehicle the tyres are the only contact with the ground, they transmit both driving and braking forces to the ground and grip the road when cornering. Under-inflated tyres put strain on the sidewalls, increase the rolling resistance and increase the wear rate, whilst over-inflated tyres reduce the contact with the road, wear the centre of the tread and reduce breaking efficiency.
Correctly Inflated Tyres are Important.
WheelRight makes monitoring simple “Just Drive Over” as often as you wish. One system will measure all the vehicles on a site from day one. There is nothing to fit to the vehicle. Its simple, vehicles are identified by reading the numberplate as they approach the sensor plates on the ground and within seconds the data has been processed and sent to the WheelRight “Cloud” server where information on known vehicles is compared to the database and a report is generated comparing the actual and the recommended pressures. For all other vehicles WheelRight reports the recorded pressures for each tyre that has driven over and that includes multiple axles and multiple wheels on each axle.
Optional features that may be configured are:
