In Europe, one third of all HGV breakdowns are linked to the tyres, 90% of them due to inflation problems. Michelin decided it was high time it offered services based on preventive rather than curative maintenance! In addition, the arrival of new market players in the tyre sector, particularly in Asia, is forcing the manufacturer to develop innovative new offers and uses to maintain its position as market leader.
The goal of the strategic project to develop connected tyres was to offer new value-added services to HGV fleet managers and maintenance centres. The aim was to improve fleet management by storing all the data in a cloud accessible both to the carrier and to Michelin.
