Pump smarter

at a smart tyre pump location

The smart tyre pump on location

P+R Maastricht Noord has a smart tyre pump that allows you to inflate your tyres to the correct pressure, free of charge, any time of day or night. In addition to inflating your tyres, the smart pump shows what you save on fuel, tyre wear, and CO2 emissions with the correct tyre pressure. This makes it even easier to inflate your tyres every two months.

How does the smart tyre pump work?

Inflating tyres at the tyre pump at petrol stations is quite a challenge for motorists, but the smart tyre pump is easy to use. Anyone can use the smart tyre pump, even if you don't know what your tyre pressure should be. Simply enter your license plate number or enter the correct tyre pressure on the screen. The smart tyre pump will then show what you'll save on fuel and CO2 emissions with the correct tyre pressure. 

The smart tyre pump has a user-friendly touchscreen and operates on smart software. It gives a step-by-step explanation on how to inflate your tyres correctly, with easy-to-understand icons, buttons, and instructions. If you still need help, you can ask for extra information by pressing the information button. 

Smart tyre pump locations

Visit the Band op Spanning website to see the exact location of the smart tyre pump at P+R Maastricht Noord. The website also features information on the current number of users and the CO2 reductions achieved.

What else does the smart tyre pump take into consideration?

  • Cold or warm tyres?  
    If the car has driven longer than fifteen minutes or more than 5 km, the smart tyre pump corrects the measurement with 0.3 bars.
  • Winter tyres, tyre size, and load
    Winter tyres, tyre size, and the load on the car require a correction to the recommended tyre pressure of your car. The smart tyre pump also corrects the measurement for these factors, guaranteeing perfectly inflated tyres for every situation.
  • Flat tyre warning
    The smart tyre pump will tell you if there is a puncture in one of your tyres. Approximately 7% of cars drive with a tyre with extremely low pressure or that is punctured.

Benefits  of using the smart tyre pump

    • Clear: correct tyre pressure thanks to number plate reading
    • Easy: display shows each action the user needs to perform
    • Insightful: shows number of users, their corrected tyre pressure, and CO2 emissions avoided 
    • Sustainable: The pump is solar-powered, leading to fewer CO2 emissions
