TyreWatch Sponsor Guy Heywood and Trainsaid and their Virtual Malawi Charity Challenge - September 2020

Challenging times and a good time to reflect on the importance of health care - prevention, access and quality delivery. Imagine Covid with no advice, distant medical facilities and no transportation. This is the reality for most of Africa’s population.

Transaid are working hard on many African projects ; to provide community healthcare, emergency transport, Covid and Malaria prevention and road safety training - saving lives everyday.

Their vital work needs funding - which comes from many fellow transport professionals completing their challenges.

2020 was a big year with two large events in the UK and Malawi, however Covid means they are now postponed until 2021.

TyreWatch are pleased to support Guy as he is riding the planned Malawi route indoors - 504km and 10km of climbing in 5 days with a target to raise enough money for 2 bicycle ambulances or to fund a health care worker for 1 year.

All of the money donated goes to support Transaid in saving lives - preventing; Covid, Malaria, GBV (Gender Based Violence) and providing essential mobility solutions for remote African communities

AutoAlign reducing air pollution - August 2020

We are proud to announce the development of AutoAlign – a connected technology to continuously monitor wheel alignment – in conjunction with Aston University, University of Chester, McLaren Applied and Dynamon.

Tyre Industry Research concludes that on the UK roads today there are 18.7 million vehicles operating with incorrect wheel alignment. This misalignment is simply a consequence of routine day to day use, but often goes undetected for months until the problem is identified at scheduled maintenance or legislative testing. The consequential excessive tyre tread abrasion is widely recognised as a major contributor to vehicle particulate emissions (PM2.5 and PM10) by the World Health Organisation. For business it adds costly overheads of increased fuel consumption and premature tyre replacement.

AutoAlign is being engineered to detect all three alignment issues (toe-in/toe-out, camber and caster) as accurately as existing workshop technology. Significantly, it will identify the issue in real-time while the vehicle is operating on the road. AutoAlign is designed to promote fast correction therefore minimising emissions and improving vehicle efficiency.

Mark Longden, Project Lead and Technical Director of TyreWatch, commented: "We are delighted that Innovate UK chose to support our important new environmental health project. We have months of hard work and testing ahead of us before AutoAlign will be ready for production in quarter 4 of 2021 – under our AlignWatch brand."

McLaren Racing sign another contract - February 2020

McLaren Racing has one single mission: to win Grand Prix and World Championships. Their logistics fleet is essential for the European leg of the F1 circuit which sees the Team travel to nine countries.

TyreWatch are proud to be the official supplier of connected tyre technology across the entire McLaren fleet. The renowned race team rely on TyreWatch to continuously monitor every commercial tyre to ensure their vehicles arrive on schedule.

With just days between races, the fleet must cover long distances within intensive time constraints; often requiring non-stop travel with triple manned drivers. McLaren have recently invested in 24 state-of-the-art Volvo FH trucks combining all the latest technology to enhance drivability. These power a fleet of 25 bespoke HGV trailers providing the ever-changing logistical requirements for the race cars, technical support and hospitality operations.

Glenn Sherwood, co-founder of TyreWatch, commented: "we are delighted to have secured another three-year contract with McLaren. Our digital truck tyre platform connects commercial tyres in the same way F1 cars have enjoyed for years. McLaren were early adopters of TyreWatch back in 2016 and our platform has consistently proved itself since."

Scania add TyreWatch to R & M contracts - December 2019

Simply Waste Solutions are a recycling-led waste management company for businesses based across London, the home counties, Oxford and Bristol. They are responsible for around 24,000 collections a week, managing more than 120,000 tonnes of waste and recycling with a service success rate of over 99%.

To achieve this, Simply Waste rely on a modern fleet of over 50 vehicles across their sites. Scania Heathrow supply their vehicles on a full R & M contract covering all scheduled maintenance and tyres. However, with daily operations across waste recycling and transfer stations their tyres naturally experience a higher frequency of damage. To help control this avoidable and unnecessary cost, Scania Heathrow selected TyreWatch continuous tyre monitoring to provide real-time visibility of every tyre issue and to maximise vehicle uptime.

 

Glenn Sherwood, co-founder of TyreWatch, commented: "due to the success of TyreWatch on all new vehicles, Scania Heathrow have already decided to retrofit the system across every Simply Waste vehicle at their PMIs. This is a terrific achievement and an endorsement of our sustainable approach to tyres."
