This award is especially dedicated to the valuable employees at Bridgestone, who put in a tremendous amount of hard work to embody our mission statement- ‘Serving society with superior quality.’”
Bridgestone has always been the champion for encouraging innovations in the tyre industry. Their smart tyres are focused on enhancing driver experience by utilizing exciting future technology that provides real-time road surface condition information and evaluation to the driver through a sensor located inside the tire tread. The sensor wirelessly sends the information to the vehicle’s analytical equipment, and this information is then transmitted directly to the driver through an in-car display.
Some other advancements have been Bridgestone’s iTrack solutions, a new monitoring system for detecting tyre damage issues in real-time, TPMS for mining and off-the-road tyres, and Webfleet Solutions- whose applications range from transport management systems and on-board cameras to mileage and HGV specific navigation.
Bridgestone has always set a high benchmark as a leader in tyre innovation. By securing this award, the company has further underlined its commitment to create more innovative and sustainable technologies while also supporting global communities.
