Nexen Taps Into AI to Predict Tire Performance

March 2, 2022

Nexen Tire Corp. says it has developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based tire performance prediction system to anticipate fuel efficiency, handling and other factors.

"The ability to forecast tire performance early in the tire development process has a significant impact on the quantity of prototypes produced," as well as tire development time, according to Nexen officials.

The new, AI-based system also "will allow faster and more accurate tire design and performance improvement during the pre-production process."
