Dr. Aaron Franklin to Speak at the Clemson Univ. Tire Conference

Dr. Aaron Franklin, Chief Technology Officer at Tyrata, will speak at the Clemson University Global Tire Industry Conference, Hilton Head, South Carolina, on Friday, April 12, 2019. Dr. Franklin will be speaking about Intelligent Tire Tread Wear Sensor Technology in Session 5: Tire End Of Life Recycling & Sustainability beginning at 9:25 am. Every year, tire-related accidents claim the lives of thousands. The industry is in desperate need of a tire sensor that monitors the thickness of a tire’s tread, in real time.

Tyrata, Inc. is a sensor development and data management company offering patent-pending IntelliTread™ wireless sensing technology that monitors, tracks, and predicts tread wear over the life of any tire. Dr. Franklin will describe how the new technology works, present results from recent testing, describe the roadmap towards commercialization, and discuss the potential impact the technology can have on safety, efficiency, and vehicle autonomy.
