Haryo Widya Darmawan, a student from the Muhammadiyah University’s School of Engineering in Malang, East Java, secured a bronze medal at the 2019 International Trade for Fair Ideas and Inventions in Messe Nürnberg, Germany, for his invention.
Haryo showcased a device that reduced the temperature for tires in cargo trucks called Tyrender, which he created to cut down cargo companies' costs for changing tires.
Previously, Tyrender also received a bronze medal and the Special Award of the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers in the 2018 Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF) in South Korea last year.
For the exhibition in Germany, Haryo perfected the device by adding a temperature reader and renamed it Smart Tyrender.
“Smart Tyrender will automatically spray water when the tire temperature exceeds its maximum allowed temperature,” Haryo told The Jakarta Post last week.
He added that Smart Tyrender was equipped with a vehicle acceleration feature, as well as smart power management.
“This device can automatically adjust the vehicle’s running weight with changes in weather to prolong the tire’s durability,” he said.
He said his invention received many compliments from judges from various industry backgrounds, varying from engineers to experts in the automotive industry.
“Some German cargo business owners in Indonesia are interested and want to discuss my invention,” he said. (dpk)
