Tire Manufacturers Roll Forward With RFID

Beginning next year, all 35 million tires manufactured annually in Korea by Kumho Tires will come equipped with a passive EPC Gen 2 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification tag to enable it to be tracked at Kumho's factory, through the supply chain, at stores and by owners, such as fleet managers. Working with one of its sister companies, Asiana IDT, a developer and provider of IT products and services, Kumho developed a slim, rectangular patch-type UHF EPC RFID tag that is embedded inside a tire's inner liner during a high-temperature and -pressure manufacturing process.
