Goodyear has unveiled an information system that includes a tyre, sensors and cloud-based algorithms. The intelligent tyre prototype is designed with the intention of providing continuous connectivity and real-time data sharing for safer and more cost-efficient mobility. The sensors on the shared mobility product solution work with the vehicle and third-party information to provide real-time data to Goodyear’s proprietary algorithms. It delivers information on tyre ID and status including wear, temperature and pressure which is updated and shared with fleet operators. “Tyre performance and wear information provide a real-time signal for when a tyre needs service to extend its life, fuel economy and performance attributes,” said Chris Delaney, president of Goodyear Europe, Middle East and Africa. “This kind of proactive maintenance allows fleet operators to precisely identify and resolve tyre-related and potential service issues before they happen. As the face of mobility continues to evolve, so will the needs of consumers and fleet operators.”
