Goodyear announced its first tire intelligence solution for cargo van fleets, Goodyear SightLine, which uses sensors with cloud-based algorithms to communicate with fleet operators in real-time. “Much like smartwatches that monitor vitals like heart rates and oxygen levels, Goodyear SightLine’s tire intelligence monitors the health of a tire,” said Chris Helsel, senior vice president, global operations and chief technology officer.
Goodyear SightLine is aimed at field service, construction, and last-mile delivery industries. Later this year, Goodyear SightLine will also be available to Goodyear’s original equipment customers and emerging fleet and mobility providers.
Goodyear’s proprietary predictive maintenance technologies can help to address many challenges facing drivers and fleet managers today, including predicting breakdowns, minimizing downtime, and monitoring tire pressure and wear for enhanced safety and more cost-efficient mobility. What’s next? A zero-emission tire for last-mile deliveries?
