Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader wins Int. Bus Sustainability Award

by Editor News

The Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader is capable of providing real-time tyre data and any type of alerts can be automatically sent to the driver, fleet manager and the service technician.


An automated tyre analysis and control system by Goodyear has won the first position at the International Bus Sustainability Awards in the ‘Tyres and Tyre Management’ category. This control system is the company’s all-new Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader. This award is given to honour those companies and products that focus on innovation and also address the difficulties of global sustainability.

The award ceremony was held in Berlin on 18 March 2019. The award for Goodyear was received by Thomas Sauer, Marketing Specialist of Goodyear Proactive Solutions EMEA.

André Weisz, the Managing Director of Goodyear Proactive Solutions EMEA commented on this by saying, “The team is very proud to receive this prestigious award. It recognises Goodyear’s technology leadership marked by a fully trusted tyre range, in combination with an added value suite of digital solutions for tyre and fleet management.”

Talking about the Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader, this system has been designed particularly for public transport companies. It is a ground-mounted sensor that measures and analyses the vehicle and tyre information within a few seconds. This includes data like inflation, axle load, remaining tread depth and total weight data.

The Goodyear Drive-Over-Reader is capable of providing real-time tyre data and any type of alerts can be automatically sent to the driver, fleet manager and the service technician. This information proactively observes the tyre and the efficiency of the fleet. It further enables the fleet operations to augment uptime, keep a look at the maintenance when the vehicle isn't at service, and also set up a long haul tyre replacement plan. Distinguishing potential tyre issues at a beginning period boosts the execution and mileage of the tyre and the fleet.

André Weisz explained, “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 tyre-related issues before they even happen.”
