Michelin MEMS Lite is an entry-level tire MEMS solution that combines Michelin’s sensors to deliver periodic tire pressure and temperature readings. These tyre sensors are mounted inside the tyres, where data is captured periodically as vehicles drive by fixed reading stations strategically located at the mine site. The data is then sent remotely to connected devices through a local server or secure cloud server.
Michelin says its product requires no hardware installation on trucks and that it is an easy-to-install and operate tyre monitoring solution that gives operators better control of their equipment.
According to the company, MEMS Lite is easily upgraded to MEMS4, as they both use the same platform and communication protocols currently available in North America.
