The Pioneer of Radial Technology, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd. has unveiled its flagship product referred to as “Smart Tyre” technology equipped with TREEL sensors, a first in its sector. With this launch, the company has revolutionized India’s tyre market and marks its entry into the podium of connected mobility.
The ‘Smart Tyre’ technology could be a first-of-its-kind internet-based monitoring system and to take care of optimum tyre pressure & temperature, JK Tyre has introduced Tyre Pressure & Temperature Monitoring System (TPMS) offered by TREEL Sensors into its tyres. With the assistance of sensors, you’ll be able to monitor the tyre’s statistics, as well as pressure and temperature. The knowledge collected by this monitoring system is sent to the owner’s mobile phone with the help of Bluetooth and can be accessed through the smartphone App (TREELCARE). The Smart Tyre technology permits for early detection of problems and maybe corrected before they result in any mishap on the road. Additionally, TREEL Sensors deliver higher fuel efficiency up to 4-5% resulting in a discount in carbon emission. Also, technology enhances tyre life and minimizes operational expenses besides giving bigger safety on the road.
For people who do not know, TREEL Sensors is the outcome of JK Tyre’s recent 26% acquisition in TREEL Mobility Solutions, a start-up venture. The TREEL Sensors is a one-of-a-kind technology-based tool geared towards helping customers in smart monitoring and economical tyre maintenance services. The tyres are designed to provide real-time info about the condition of tyres using sensors. This transformative technology is a bold step by the company in creating the tyre truly intelligent and interactive, providing tailor-made mobility for the needs of India’s digitally-savvy vehicle house owners.
The Smart Tyre technology is compatible with all kinds of cars, bikes and trucks/buses. It is available in three variants for cars – Smart Tyre Sensor Car Kit: Valve, MTrac Smart Sensor Car & Truck Kit: Valve and MPower Smart Sensor Car Kit: Valve. Similarly, it is available in two variants for bikes – Smart Tyre Sensor Bike Kit: Belt and MTrac Smart Sensor Bike Kit: Belt.

The Smart Tyre unveiled by JK Tyre also features GPS, allowing for enhanced safety by holding house owners wherever their vehicles are at any point in time.
How will this work?
The tyre health is gauged by diagnostic sensors that are integrated with a Tyre Pressure & Temperature Monitoring System (TPMS) and therefore the information retrieved is processed for augmented updates on tyre health via multiple digital platforms just like the company’s native TREEL Care app (free on iOS/Android) and website. To call some, the app offers updates to prevent tyre-related breakdowns and fuel savings.
The ‘Smart Tyre’ technical chronology is a stimulating piece of tech that you simply found on the tyre and we are impressed with what JK Tyre has done. We are eager to see how it works in real-time on Indian roads keeping traffic on roads.
