The European Union is finalising plans to expand the coverage of type approval provisions that mandate the installation of tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) in new vehicles.
Bartec Auto ID Limited (Bartec) is to make its Mechanex debut in November, with the TPMS expert hoping to excite and educate technicians visiting Sandown Park by conducting various live demonstrations.
UK-based WheelRight looks set to revolutionise tyre management across the commercial vehicle sector, with the launch of a unique tyre-monitoring system that can help the entire transport industry save billions of pounds each year.
Bridgestone is rolling out an innovative TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) across Europe in order to provide a more thorough pressure maintenance service to contract fleet customers. With service provision supplied by Truck Point, tyres requiring attention are not only identified but also serviced back to peak condition.
From November 1, EU legislation will require all new Type passenger cars to have a direct TPMS installed, monitoring and alerting the driver to abnormal changes in tyre pressure and, normally, the temperature.
