Bridgestone Corporation Develops New Technology for Estimating Tire Wear and Tread Depth

Bridgestone Corporation has developed a new technology for estimating tire wear and tread depth based on the Contact Area Information Sensing, or CAIS, concept. As tire tread becomes worn, the tire's ability to grip wet road surfaces may decrease, increasing the potential of low-traction occurrences. In addition, a tire that has experienced extremely uneven or lopsided wear is at greater risk of causing a vehicle malfunction. The new technology utilizes sensors attached to the inside of tires to obtain information on changes in tread condition during normal driving. By analyzing this information, the technology estimates tread wear conditions and provides the driver with real-time monitoring of tire conditions. By providing drivers with real-time tire information, such as the remaining tread depth and whether tires are experiencing uneven wear, Bridgestone's technology will contribute to improved driving conditions by enabling users to judge the most appropriate timing for tire replacement. Furthermore, this technology helps to prevent uneven wear by enabling consumers better understand the optimal timing for tire rotations, thereby allowing them use their tires for the longest possible period without waste.
