Goodyear to develop aircraft tug tire solutions for Trepel

Having long provided smart tire solutions for commercial vehicles and aircraft tires, manufacturer Goodyear will now also provide similar solutions for airport tractors that maneuver aircraft.

A heavy-duty version of Goodyear’s own TPMS was integrated into the Trepel aircraft tug’s dashboard, an industry first for the tire manufacturer’s TPMS technology as it normally operates through a web platform or app. Following any loss in pressure or a temperature change, the TPMS sensor built into the vehicle’s tire will then alert the driver in the cabin via a screen in the dashboard if action needs to be taken such as a change in tire.
