Goodyear runs pilot for its intelligent tyres

Goodyear Tire and Redsher together started a pilot programme of intelligent tyres mobility solutions to fleets.

Redspher, a transport and logistics group operating in 19 countries throughout Europe.

Under the programme, The US tyre maker will supply its intelligent tyres – equipped with embedded sensors – through Redspher, to a variety of fleets connected to Redspher’s shared services platform called Rubiwin. The initial pilots are comprised of outfitting delivery and service vans with intelligent tyres , creating the ability to “fast-capture” relevant data due to the high-mileage use of the vehicles.

“Because some of these vans travel approximately 450 miles per day, this exercise provides feedback in demanding conditions, where high mileage and time-critical deliveries are essential,” said Erin Spring, Goodyear director, New Ventures.

The fleets will benefit from continuously monitored and recorded wear rate and tyre pressure, which is paired with other vehicle data. The information is connected to Goodyear’s proprietary algorithms to enhance overall fleet operations and predict when the tyres need service or replacement. This more effectively helps keep the vehicles operating without interruption, a key in the on-time delivery and service segment.

“The importance of efficient fleet management is vital for Rubiwin members and us,” said Philippe Higelin, Redspher CEO. “The ability to use tire information to enhance safety and performance is a win for all, especially in the on-demand delivery business where time is often critical.”

Goodyear’s advantage for its expanding range of partners is its combination of fleet management expertise, intelligent products and a vast service network to deliver complete solutions for the future of mobility.
