Goodyear Partners with SafeAI in OTR Segment
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is partnering with SafeAI to "incorporate tire intelligence into the programming of autonomous heavy equipment vehicles," according to Goodyear officials.
The two companies will exchange site data "to protect tire health, eliminate downtime and contribute to a smarter, safer standard for the construction industry."
They will test Goodyear's TPMS Heavy Duty rim-mounted sensors at a construction site in California, on a Caterpillar 725 that has been retrofitted with SafeAI's autonomous software.
"These sensors can identify and communicate adverse conditions before they cause maintenance issues and derail a project," say Goodyear officials.
