Leading Indian tyre manufacturer JK Tyre and Industries Ltd. launched their new Smart Tyre range at the Auto Expo 2020. The company is the first in the sector to launch Smart Tyres Technology. A first-of-its-kind cloud-based monitoring system Smart Tyres warrants maintenance of tyres through timely diagnostics by using sensors integrated with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). The sensors thus augment updates on tyre health via multiple digital platforms like the company’s indigenous Treel Care app and web page.
The Smart Tyre technology allows for early detection of issues and deployment of timely preventive measures to avoid them and also deliver higher fuel efficiency up to 4-5 per cent leading to a reduction in carbon emission. In addition, through this technology, the tyre life is enhanced thereby minimizing operational expenses.
