Goodyear & Tesloop Partnering For “Intelligent Tire” Testing

The Tesla-focused city-to-city mobility service known as Tesloop is partnering with the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company for the testing of so-called “intelligent tires,” according to new recent press release from the companies.

The Tesla-focused city-to-city mobility service known as Tesloop is partnering with the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company for the testing of so-called “intelligent tires,” according to new recent press release from the companies.

The “intelligent tires” in question are so named because they play host to wireless sensors meant to allow for better overall tire management. In other words, the aim is for the specialized tires to aid in the reduction of downtime for fleets — perhaps an effective way to improve profit margins.

The sensors that are being used measure and record various parameters such as tire pressure, tire temperature, etc.; and are paired with Goodyear’s cloud-based proprietary algorithms and other vehicle data systems.

Green Car Congress provides more: “As part of the program with Tesloop, Goodyear is also extending its mobile fleet solutions to passenger vehicles, providing tire maintenance and repair while Tesloop vehicles are at charging stations, during regularly planned downtime. …Goodyear has been working with Tesloop since January 2017 to study the effect of autonomous technologies on tires. Goodyear’s effort with Tesloop builds on its successful commercialization of Goodyear Proactive Solutions for truck fleets, using advanced telematics and predictive analytics technology to allow fleet operators to optimize fuel efficiency and precisely identify and resolve tire-related issues before they happen.”

Probably not the most important piece of news, all things considered, but still interesting to see that Tesloop is apparently continuing to do well. For more on the company, see:
