Tyrata Unveils IntelliTread Drive-Over Reader

Posted on October 15, 2019

Tyrata Inc. has expanded its IntelliTread tire tread wear sensor platform to include a low-profile drive-over reader.

"The IntelliTread Drive-Over-System (DOS) provides actionable data regarding tire tread wear when a vehicle drives over the low-profile, speed bump-like unit," say Tyrata officials, who add that the system was developed to meet the need of fleet management, automotive service centers and truck terminals "for low-cost, real-time monitoring of tread wear in both automotive and commercial vehicle tires."

Tyrata says the IntelliTread DOS is ideal for a wide range of commercial and consumer vehicle centers "and can quickly evaluate tread depth by simply driving a car, truck or bus over the system to acquire tire tread readings in real-time. Data derived from these measurements can prompt proper tire service, reduce fuel consumption and enhance safety by replacing worn tires in a timely manner."

"Through advanced data extraction, handling, and analytics, the IntelliTread DOS delivers critical data points that can be used to extend the life of a tire, or keep worn tires off the road to minimize tread-related tire failures," says Dr. Aaron Franklin, Tyrata's chief technology officer.

"This new capability is ideal for our fleet customers because it allows them to get started with tread monitoring right away, without any change in their operations."

Tyrata plans to provide all of the hardware, software and analytics for the system with no up-front costs as part of a data package and agreement.
