A new tie-up between Goodyear and Mercedes-Benz Trucks means drivers and managers can now access real-time vehicle data on driving efficiency, competitiveness and sustainability and also information about tyre condition. This comes with Goodyear’s integration of the Goodyear DriverHub mobile application into the Mercedes-Benz Truck App Portal.
The collaboration is expanding to include telematics services. The Mercedes-Benz Truck App Portal, renowned for its digital marketplace that equips its vehicles with tailored apps to enhance comfort and 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 accurate tyre data, optimising their tyre management practices.
Tailored specifically to the needs of drivers, the app offers real-time information sourced from Goodyear’s tyre management solutions, including Goodyear TPMS, Goodyear CheckPoint, and Goodyear DrivePoint. By joining forces with the Mercedes-Benz Truck App Portal, Goodyear equips drivers with additional visibility into tyre conditions. Instant alerts and notifications are triggered upon detecting deviations from predetermined tyre pressure and temperature levels.
Armed with precise information on the affected tyre and the degree of urgency, drivers can take action to reduce breakdowns as well as help support safety and performance on the road.
One of the stand-out 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 immediate action and connect with the dispatcher for further instructions. The same information can be shared in real-time with fleet operators via the mobile app, helping to reduce the likelihood of tire-related incidents and enhancing overall road safety.
