TOKYO—Sumitomo Rubber Industries' Sensing Core technology can track wear-levels on tires as well as tire pressure, tire load and road conditions.
By monitoring the dynamic behavior of tires via digital filtering technology, Sensing Core analyzes and interprets wheel-speed signals, transmitted as tires rotate.
With the latest advance, the technology can detect tire-wear levels by calculating tread rigidity based on wheel speed signals, engine data and other vehicle information.
"This technology not only alerts drivers about the wear condition of their tires, but also allows for centralized management of tire conditions over the cloud," SRI said in a release.
Sensing Core holds enormous potential for future applications among mobility service and transport service providers, ensuring the overall safety of their operations while greatly reducing maintenance costs, SRI said.
