Transformation to Smart Car Tires with RFID

Michelin is one of the world's largest tire manufacturers, with 120,000 employees and 68 plants in 17 countries.

The company aims to optimize and track all processes from tire production to after-sales management.

Transparent tire data should be made available to business customers to improve tire development, sales and recycling processes. All processes from tire production to assembly should be traceable and warranty management simplified. High product quality should be guaranteed and safety for drivers increased.

Process Requirements

RFID tags embedded in tires must be insensitive to both high temperatures and mechanical stress in production, as well as the physical impact of tire materials such as steel and rubber.

Objectives of Michelin

  • Equip all tires with RFID tags by 2023
  • Track all tires in the supply chain
  • Simplify after-sales processes
  • Improve safety for drivers

The Michelin Solution

Michelin mechanically encapsulates the RFID tags with a rubber layer and installs them directly in tire production. Each tire has a unique digital identifier. The data is read by handheld. Faulty installation is detected automatically.

Every stakeholder in the 'tire' ecosystem has the option of using an RFID reader to read the information on the tags. Data is accessed through a cloud database. Information such as tire type, DOT or declaration of conformity is available. After-sales management, such as recycling, is simplified.

Drivers receive automatic reminders to change their tires. Autonomous driving systems access the data to adapt driving behavior to tire condition and air pressure. Driving safety is increased.

Advantages

  • Increased supply chain visibility
  • Automatic detection of faulty installation
  • Simplified after-sales management
  • Increased safety and quality guarantee for drivers
