Brussels – As of 2019, Bridgestone will start to supply truck and bus tires with RFID electronic tagging, the company said in an IAA 2018 show* preview statement.
RFID, it said, will be used across all Bridgestone’s interfaces and will “enhance the traceability of tire casings and provide a time-efficient and accurate system for data-sharing and entry.”
“Customers will be able to freely access their report findings, which will ultimately help to educate the business and optimise their total cost of ownership,” added Bridgestone.
Also at IAA 2018, Bridgestone will also present a first-ever application of its ologic technology as a concept on truck and bus tires.
Developed for electric vehicles, ologic technology uses a larger diameter and narrower tread to enhance fuel efficiency without compromising safety.
*The IAA 2018 commercial vehicles show takes place 20-27 Sept at the Deutsche Messe fairgrounds in Hanover, Germany.
