The Mercedes-Benz Truck App portal, a digital marketplace that equips its vehicles with tailored apps to enhance operational efficiency, now welcomes the Goodyear DriverHub application as an official partner application.
Goodyear DriverHub is designed to provide drivers and fleet operators with a continuous stream of tyre data, optimising their tyre management practices. The app offers real-time information sourced from Goodyear's tyre management solutions, including Goodyear TPMS, Goodyear CheckPoint, and Goodyear DrivePoint.
The new integration means instant alerts and notifications are triggered upon detecting deviations from predetermined tyre pressure and temperature levels. Armed with information on the affected tyre and the degree of urgency, drivers can take targeted actions to reduce breakdowns as well as help support safety and performance on the road.
Piotr Czyżyk, managing director proactive solutions and fleets Europe at Goodyear, said: "By seamlessly integrating our tyre data insights into the Mercedes-Benz Truck app, we empower drivers and fleet operators to make informed decisions that support optimisation of their fleets' operations and contribute to a more sustainable future."
According to Goodyear, one of the standouts features of the Goodyear DriverHub is its predictive technology that alerts drivers and fleet operators in case of pressure leaks with ability to detect and differentiate fast or slow leak. This notification allows drivers to take appropriate actions and connect with the dispatcher for further instructions. The same information can be shared in real-time with fleet operators via mobile app, helping to reduce the likelihood of tyre-related incidents and enhancing overall road safety.
