Tires are set to go digital with the launch of a system capable of gathering tire data to give drivers “peace of mind”.

Nokian, the Finnish manufacturers behind the tires, say they will combine sensor-equipped smart tires with a mobile application that records the sensor data keeping the user informed.

“The application gives the drivers peace of mind by keeping them informed about the tire pressure and temperature, helping to prevent tire damage and warning about possible anomalies,” said Toni Silfverberg, Head of Sales and Marketing.

The system, called Intuitu, will be available in agricultural and contracting tires initially with plans to extend digitalization to the commercial tire range.
