Yokohama develops intelligent tyre sensor system

Tokyo — Yokohama Rubber has developed a tyre monitoring system that uses a sensor mounted directly on a wheel to not only check the air pressure but also observe the tyre behaviour and road surface conditions.

The G sensor has three embedded sensors: a pressure sensor, a temperature sensor and a three-axis accelerometer, which has a greater capability than the conventional electric stability program (ESP) system to detect minute changes in the tyre’s three movement directions: rotational, centrifugal and vertical directions.

The G sensor provides…
