Data show that 30% of all vehicle accidents caused by technical problems are tire related. In order to prevent accidents caused by tire related problems,Bridgestone cooperated with Microsoft to develop a new tire damage monitoring system (TDMS). This is a pioneering system that can detect tire damage in real time.
The new system uses Microsoft Internet vehicle platform (mcvp) cloud framework, together with existing sensor data, to detect events affecting tire surface and carcass from installed hardware. The driver can then be immediately informed of the danger and take appropriate action to remedy it. Bridgestone's new tire damage monitoring system is suitable for all fleet and OEM manufacturers using mcvp.
Microsoft is working with mobile companies to support their transformation to smart mobile service providers. Through the Microsoft Internet car platform, Microsoft's mission is to help enterprises accelerate the provision of secure and personalized connected mobile experience. Using mcvp, Bridgestone has created a tire damage monitoring system, which has made outstanding contributions to road safety, and also proved how the cooperation between industry leaders can open up new business opportunities in the future.
