Loose Wheel Sensors Inc. Founders and Developers
Markus is a graduate of the University of Waterloo who has over 40 years of experience as a professional mechanical engineer in heavy equipment design, high-rise building construction and aerospace/automotive testing. He has over a dozen patents ranging from ice crystal nucleation, jet engine runup testing, ingot mould carriers and plastic inclusion comminution. Together with John Sousa they developed the Eaglehook fall restraint system designed to allow repairs to be safely performed atop transport trailers. This focus on safety led them to collaborate on the development of the Loose Wheel Sensor System, a one-of-a-kind safety system that uses modern day technologies to provide real-time early-stage warnings of loosening wheel clamp force and high wheel hub temperatures.
John has been in the trucking Industry since 1978 as a certified mechanic, entrepreneur and product developer. In 1987 he founded and operated Sousa Truck Trailer Repair Ltd. and soon after founded Sousa Convoy Ltd. offering trailer rentals, leasing and sales. John has built an unrivalled reputation in providing the highest standards in customer service. He is passionate about safety both on and off the road. Together with Markus Hess they developed Eaglehook, a unique fall restraint system to allow repairs to be safely performed atop transport trailers. This passion for safety led them to collaborate in the development of the LWS system. This one-of-a-kind safety system uses modern day technology to provide real-time early-stage warnings of loosening wheel clamp force and high wheel hub temperatures
