This project addresses the advantages of using near-field based automotive systems in applications where RFID based systems cannot function properly, proposing an automotive tire identification and diagnose system to use on fleet commercial vehicles.

The project will research other capabilities of near-field (NF) technology as a replacement for wire based communication between the tractor and trailer, providing the driver and possibly the control center with crucial information about tire conditions. This is the first study on the use of NF in automotive safety systems as well as the first automotive application using low frequency NF. It will look at the various advantages of the use of NF in such an application, and possibility extend this research to initiate major innovation in the automotive industry using this technology.

Project duration: 15.09.2018 - 15.09.2022.
