“Driver and road safety is one of our industry’s biggest issues. By collecting comprehensive data from the wheel sensor and communicating it to the driver and fleet at the right time, we want to support prevention of accidents, and avoidance of expensive vehicle repairs,” said Pieter Klinkers, chief executive officer of Maxion Wheels. “Maxion Wheels’ MaxSmart wheel uses the kinetic energy from the wheels’ motion to continuously power the sensors that are collecting and communicating wheel load, clamp force to the axle, and tire pressure and temperature. This information is uploaded to both the vehicle and cloud, providing vehicle safety intelligence to both driver and fleet.”

MaxSmart is currently in testing and is expected to be ready for production in 2017.
