Tesloop vehicles are to be equipped with wireless sensors to enhance tire management and maximize fleet uptime.
The city-to-city mobility service based in California in the USA exclusively uses Tesla electric vehicles. The sensors, which will be supplied and fitted by Goodyear, will measure temperature and pressure. This information will be paired with other vehicle data and connected to Goodyear’s cloud-based proprietary algorithms to enhance overall fleet operations and predict when the tires need service or replacement.
As part of the program with Tesloop, Goodyear is also extending its mobile fleet solutions to passenger vehicles, providing tire maintenance and repair while Tesloop vehicles are at charging stations during regularly planned downtime.
“When you are operating cars nearly 24/7/365, minimizing tire incidents is critical to the customer experience and the business model,” said Rahul Sonnad, Tesloop’s CEO.
“The possibilities for data-driven tire diagnostics are remarkable and promise to help a business like Tesloop operate more efficiently and make our vehicles the safest on the road.”
