Michelin is embedding RFID microchips in its truck tyres

Smart and  connected truck tyres can now easily be identified and provide information on tyre pressure, temperature, wear, etc.

For distributors, connected Michlein tyres are an effective way to promote product performance and gain the trust of fleet managers.

Information such as temperature, pressure, ID number, and location on the vehicle is all necessary to the management of truck tyre stocks. Thanks to RFID technology this information is now more accessible and readily shared.

When connected to a TPMS – Tyre Pressure Monitoring System – RFID cuts tyre inspection time from 15 to 5 minutes.

The advantages?
Reducing vehicle downtime through optimization of maintenance work
Providing the ability to anticipate tire replacements
And thus ensuring better stock management.
