Smart Tires by Silent Sensors, Energy Harvesting, RFID for rubbers elastomers, polymers

Posted by Charbax – August 1, 2018

Marcus Taylor, CEO of Silent Sensors (http://silentsensors.com) demonstrates their Energy Harvesting and RFID products for use in rubbers elastomers and polymers, with a special focus on tires. Tires, first and foremost, are safety products. About 20% of all accidents on the road are caused by underinflated tires. Underinflated tires also translate into increased fuel consumption and increased tire wear. All the components they use have to be automotive grade.

At the IDTechEx Show! Europe, Silent Sensors introduced a new supercapacitor that is very flexible and able to withstand high temperatures, which is necessary for tire manufacture and production.
