After obtaining a reward for the Fleet Safety Product category at the Brake Fleet Safety Awards 2019 in UK, Global Michelin Wheely-Safe has achieved another award for its evolving Michelin Wheel Safe technology. This is the world’s first in-motion driver alert system that helps in detecting the onset of wheel loss from commercial vehicles before they get detached.
In addition to that, it comprises a sensor that aids in providing a warning when the brake and hub get overheated. It also comes with a full tyre pressure management system (TPMS) that provides the drivers with an added peace of mind. Winning this award was not an easy task for Wheely-Safe as they had to compete against five tough finalists. However, the success of Wheely-safe shows that the technology provided by them has put a significant impact on improving the safety of the fleet.
“A huge congratulations to Wheely-Safe for their win at the Brake Fleet Safety Awards. The judges were impressed with the product’s simple yet effective solution that helps fleets prevent potentially catastrophic road crashes, while also reducing major causes of commercial vehicle fires and vehicle downtime,” stated by the Senior Fleet Officer at Brake, the road safety charity, Sarah Plumb.
It was merely four months that Wheely-safe has achieved another award after achieving the Transport Technology of the Year category at the event, UK’s Technology Awards 2019. “Existing solutions on the market were all mechanical devices designed to try and keep the wheels on, but they simply didn’t cover every potential pitfall. We knew we needed to come at the problem from a different angle, and we’re absolutely thrilled to win this major recognition from Brake,” said by the Group Managing Director of Wheely-Safe, Gary Broadfield. The award ceremony was held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 19 September.
