Bridgestone Teams Up With Microsoft To Develop Intelligent Tyre Monitoring System

  • Through its partnership with Microsoft, Bridgestone has developed a unique Tyre Damage Monitoring System, using Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP).
  • This collaboration is the next step on Bridgestone’s journey to become a global leader in sustainable and advanced mobility solutions.

Tyre Manufacturer Bridgestone has announced its partnership with Microsoft to develop a world-first monitoring system for detecting tyre damage issues in real-time.

These issues are a serious matter, contributing to some 30 percent of all car accidents caused by technical failure. the company said in a release.

Tyre issues take four main forms: inadequate pressure, fatigue, irregular wear, and lastly, damage from curbs, potholes, or items on the road.

TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring systems) have been mandatory in all cars built since 2012, and help motorists avoid low-pressure problems. Regular service and replacing tyres in time will guard against wear and fatigue.

Laurent Dartoux, CEO and President of Bridgestone EMIA, says: “Digital is such a huge part of what we do today at Bridgestone; it’s imperative that we work with industry-leading partners who can support our needs today and in the future. By teaming up with Microsoft, we have the opportunity to bring our Tyre Damage Monitoring System to millions of drivers, offering them better safety and peace of mind.”

Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP) will provide Bridgestone with a digital infrastructure that will accelerate its delivery of connected mobility solutions, providing access to a multitude of Microsoft Azure cloud, AI, and IoT capabilities.

“Using MCVP, Bridgestone has created Tyre Damage Monitoring System that offers a remarkable contribution to road safety and proves how the collaboration between industry leaders can unlock new business opportunities ahead”, said Tara Prakriya, General Manager, Azure Mobility and Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform at Microsoft.
