Tyre pressure device developed in Oxford

First published in News

The pressure is off for a bus company using a new tyre pressure monitor developed in Oxford.

Thamesdown Transport is using the device, created by Oxford-based WheelRight, which does away with the need for manual checking.

A driver can simply drive the bus over a device embedded in the road that contains highly-sensitive sensors.

Presumably the tyres (and wheels) will still be given a periodic visual inspection for damage, etc?

You can alsogenerally see if a tyre is underinflated without the need for sensors to tell you.
