Michelin adds RFID tags in tires to provide fleets with cost-saving data
adding radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to all of its truck tires in an effort to help companies save on fleet maintenance costs, as reported by Fleet Owner. The company began installing these RFID tags in July 2016 and says they are now in 98% of new commercial products. The embedded chips are built into the tire's sidewall or can be purchased as exterior patches. Using an RFID reader, fleet managers can track the life of a tire and all of the service it has received.
