Goodyear Moves Closer Toward Tire-Pressure Monitoring

Goodyear has forged another agreement aimed at fully developing a tire-pressure monitoring
system. The latest pact is with Phase IV Engineering Inc. of Boulder, Colorado, a developer
of custom radio telemetry systems. Similar technology was unveiled last week when Goodyear
announced an “intelligent” tire system that monitors and reports tire pressure and
temperature. Last month, Goodyear announced a technology agreement with Cycloid Systems of
Cranberry, Pennsylvania, a developer of continuous air-pressure monitoring and maintenance
systems. In June, Goodyear signed an agreement with Michelin to combine its EMT and
Michelin’s PAX technologies to set an industry tire and wheel standard, and broaden
run-flat tire appeal and availability. Goodyear has been working with Phase IV since 1992
to develop a system that could be embedded in a tire for identification purposes and
monitoring air pressure and tire temperature. The results can be displayed through an
external device or a display on the vehicle’s dashboard. For more information about
