Goodyear CheckPoint, on the other hand, is a connected, yard-based drive-over tyre inspection system that reads tyre conditions and vehicle parameters. It then transmits actionable insights to fleet managers. This innovative system streamlines the traditionally time-consuming task of manually inspecting tyre pressure and tread depth, completing inspections within seconds through automation.

Through the incorporation of Goodyear CheckPoint's tyre inspection capabilities, the integration expands the scope of the TÜV SÜD Digital Vehicle Scan, granting users a comprehensive assessment of their vehicle's health, including tyre conditions. Customers opting for the DVS variant equipped with Goodyear CheckPoint benefit from a detailed inspection report covering both tyre conditions and overall vehicle health. This empowers them to make informed decisions regarding maintenance.

"Integrating the Goodyear CheckPoint into the TÜV SÜD Digital Vehicle Scan offering will provide users with a holistic view of their vehicle's condition, enabling proactive maintenance and enhancing overall performance. This is consistent with our Goodyear Total Mobility offering which is all about providing worry-free mobility solutions and taking fleet management to the next level."
Piotr Czyżyk, Managing Director Proactive Solutions Europe at Goodyear.

The integrated offering holds particular value for fleet operators, automotive service providers, and individual vehicle owners aiming to optimize their maintenance practices. Real-time insights into tyre conditions and overall vehicle health enable proactive addressing of maintenance needs, leading to reduced downtime and improved operational efficiency.

Additionally, the amalgamation of CheckPoint's tyre inspection data with the TÜV SÜD Digital Vehicle Scan Inspection System opens up possibilities for the development of predictive maintenance strategies, ultimately resulting in significant cost savings.

"TÜV SÜD is committed to driving innovation and continuously improving its solutions to meet the evolving needs of the automotive industry. This collaboration confirms our vision of advancing vehicle inspection, maintenance, and safety standards."
