New Product Showcase
Smart tires now available from Nokian Tyres
September 2, 2020 by Manure Manager
Nokian Tyres introduced the Intuitu smart tires in Agritechnica 2019 fair in Hanover last November. Now Intuitu will be available for selected agricultural and contracting tractor tires, with sales starting from Finland.
The Intuitu emphasizes plug & play simplicity: all you need is sensor-equipped smart tires and an app on your smartphone to get your tire pressure and temperature data on your phone, with minimal need for configuration.
In its current phase, the Intuitu consists of sensor-equipped smart tires and a mobile application. The smart tires are registered in the Intuitu application, which shows the tire position and pressure, as well as temperature data for all vehicles with smart tires. In the app, the fleet owner can invite as many drivers and vehicles as needed. This means the driver can stay up-to-date and get alerts on the currently used vehicle, while the fleet manager can look at the big picture and get the most out of tires and machinery.
Nokian Tyres Intuitu smart tire sales are starting gradually, first in Finland with the four flagship Nokian Tyres tractor tires – Ground King, TRI 2, Hakkapeliitta TRI and Tractor King. The factory will start shipping orders in September, and the Intuitu application will be available for download at the same time.
In the future, Nokian Tyres intends to add features like tread depth measurement and integrating Nokian Tyres Intuitu with the machine’s own operating software.
