Sumitomo Rubber’s Sensing Core Tech Now Detects Tyre Wear Levels

Sumitomo Rubber expanded its proprietary Sensing Core Technology with the addition of tyre wear detection.

With the Sensing Core Technology, tyre wear levels are now calculated by tread rigidity based on wheel speed signals, engine data and other vehicle information.

The Sensing Core is an advanced technology that detects various conditions of tyres and roads with extensive knowhow related to tyres' dynamic behaviour and specialised digital filtering technology that can analyse and interpret wheel speed signals.

The Sensing Core technology already detects tyre pressure and load and road conditions.

The Japanese company said with the new addition and other advancements, the Sensing Core technology will contribute to the realisation of a new Mobility Society by supporting the rise of CASE, MaaS and other innovations that are already transforming the automotive industry.

Another highlight of the technology is that it uses tyres as its sensors, meaning that it requires no additional sensor installation and is completely maintenance-free. Further, by sharing wheel speed signal data and other pertinent information over the cloud, Sensing Core also allows for cloud-based detection of potential issues at the regional level.

Sumitomo said this technology alerts drivers about the wear condition of their tyres and allows for centralised management of tyre conditions over the cloud. As such, Sensing Core holds enormous potential for future applications among mobility service and transport service providers, ensuring the overall safety of their operations while significantly reducing maintenance costs, added the company.
