The Future of Tires is Here: Virtual Sensor Technology from Tactile Mobility

Jul 04, 2024

Ever peeked under the hood of a modern car? You're likely to spot a variety of sensors keeping everything running smoothly. But there's a blind spot in this technology: tires. While TPMS is helpful, it doesn't tell the whole story.

At Tactile Mobility, we’re bridging this gap with virtual sensor technology. As Yagil Tzur, our VP of Products, explains on What’s Treading with Tire Review, we’re harnessing the power of software and AI to transform existing car data into a treasure trove of insights about your tires.

Here’s how it works:

  • Our software analyzes data from existing sensors like wheel speed, steering angle, and engine torque.
  • This data is then used to virtually monitor tire pressure, tread wear, stiffness, and other crucial factors.
  • The result? Real-time insights into your tire health, delivered directly to the driver.

This means no more manual tire checks (which, let’s be honest, most of us neglect anyway). It’s like having a built-in tire health expert constantly on watch, keeping you safe and optimizing your driving experience.

The future of tires is virtual, and it’s here.
