JOHNSTOWN, Ohio — Technical Rubber Co. Inc. (TRC), parent of TECH Tire & Wheel Service, has launched a business unit, dubbed Advanced Mobility Solutions (AMS), that offers autonomous tire health monitoring and data analytics.
AMS' initial mobility solution offering, called "Smart-Tread," is designed to provide fleet operators with tire performance data, driven by a data analytics engine using proprietary "Nano-Wave" direct tire data capture technology.
"Change is all about us; we see this daily in our legacy businesses," TRC CEO Dan Layne said.
"This change creates opportunities, particularly with connected, autonomous, shared and electrified vehicles. The way people and products will be transported is rapidly reshaping our world, and AMS intends to be at the center of these emerging modalities of mobility."
