Michelin and Honeywell partner on eTire system

Today Michelin North America and Honeywell announced a three-year agreement to service and support the Michelin eTire System, an electronic tire-monitoring system designed to provide truck fleet managers with tire pressure and tracking information.

“We introduced the eTire system on a limited basis in 2002 to measure fleet receptivity and test its functionality,” said Luc Minguet, COO of Michelin America Truck Tires. “The response has exceeded our expectations and through this new agreement with Honeywell, we will further expand our service and support of the eTire system.”

Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions will handle installation of the eTire system. Honeywell will also provide customer service and support for current and new customers using the eTire System.

The eTire System incorporates an in-tire sensor, a sidewall-mounted SensorDock, hand-held or drive-by data reader, and BIB TRACK software to accurately capture and instantly report tire pressure, wheel position and maintenance information, said Michelin.

The customized information is gathered and reported via the Internet, the tire maker pointed out, enabling fleet managers to track tire information accurately and to monitor existing tire inventories.

“We are pleased to partner with Michelin to service and support the eTire System on a much broader level,” said Ron Sansom, president of Honeywell Sensing and Control. “This new agreement will allow us to expand our sensing and control capabilities into very demanding tire applications.”
