Michelin's SmartWear algorithm to predict when tires need to be replaced
According to The Drive’s press release, Michelin has developed an algorithm, called SmartWear, which can predict tire wear down to the millimeter by using data from existing sensors on the vehicle combined with environmental data.
The algorithm was developed specifically for Michelin's tires, but the company hopes to make it brand-agnostic. With vehicles getting bigger and heavier, and electric cars wearing out tires more quickly, Michelin's technology is particularly useful for automakers.
The company has already tested the algorithm's accuracy with several automakers in Europe, North America, and Asia and believes its algorithm is uncrackable by automakers. However, it may take some time before the technology is scaled and implemented in production vehicles.
