Tyrata Inc.'s IntelliTread tire tread wear sensor platform includes a low-profile drive-over system. The IntelliTread Drive-Over-System (DOS) provides actionable data regarding tire tread wear when a vehicle drives over the low-profile, speed bump-like unit. The system was developed based on the unmet need of fleet management, automotive service centers and truck depots for low-cost, real-time monitoring of tread wear in both automotive and commercial vehicle tires. Sensors in Tyrata's drive-over system are linked to cloud-based data analytics to alert service and depot managers as to the actual condition of their tire tread. The IntelliTread Drive-Over-System is currently being implemented in pilot evaluations.
The sensor system is part of a growing Tyrata IntelliTread™ product portfolio designed to address the need for fast, low-cost and highly scalable measurements of tire tread depth. Ideal for a variety of consumer and commercial vehicle service centers, the IntelliTread DOS can quickly evaluate tread depth by simply driving a car, truck or bus over the system to acquire tire tread readings in real-time. Data derived from these measurements can prompt proper tire service, reduce fuel consumption and enhance safety by replacing worn tires in a timely manner.
The rugged IntelliTread™ Drive-Over-System is easy to implement, operate and maintain. Moreover, Tyrata plans to provide all of the hardware, software and analytics for the system with no up-front costs as part of a data package and agreement.da.
