RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is a technology that uses radio frequency to memorise, store and record data on a device and to retrieve it remotely.
Integrated into the tyres at the design stage, this technology guarantees reliable identification: a unique identifier that cannot be falsified and can be read whatever the state of the tyre, right up to its recycling.
What are the benefits of RFID?
RFID technology improves traceability, efficiency and safety throughout the tyre lifecycle including recycling. It is now recognised as the market standard.
RFID also allows better warranty and claims management, optimised tyre monitoring, particularly during summer/winter tyre rotation. Vehicle monitoring and predictive maintenance are therefore enhanced.
Already present on truck tyres and in motorsport, the ambition is now to integrate RFID technology on all MICHELIN light vehicle tyres by 2024.
