Su­mit­omo de­vel­ops AI-based tech­nol­ogy to ex­tend tyre life

Muscat Daily - - CORPORATE NEWS -

Known for its pi­o­neer­ing in­no­va­tions, Su­mit­omo Rub­ber In­dus­tries Ltd. (SRI) has achieved yet an­other break­through in rub­ber tech­nol­ogy that will al­low it to ex­tend a tyre’s new per­for­mance.

The ‘Tyre Leap AI Analysis’ tech­nol­ogy is an ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence-based de­vel­op­ment. It in­cor­po­rates real-world data on tyre raw ma­te­ri­als to­gether with ad­vanced an­a­lyt­i­cal data, to al­low its tech­ni­cians to pre­dict more ac­cu­rately the prop­er­ties of com­pounded rub­ber af­ter use. Im­ple­ment­ing this ‘ground­break­ing’ tech­nol­ogy will al­low the com­pany to ac­cel­er­ate the de­vel­op­ment of ‘Per­for­mance Sus­tain­ing Tech­nol­ogy,’ a key com­po­nent of its ‘Smart Tyre Con­cept.’ This will help de­velop high-per­for­mance tyres that pro­vide both safety and peace-of-mind.

This tech­nol­ogy is all about the struc­ture of com­pounded rub­ber. It com­prises a pack­age of ma­te­ri­als such as poly­mers (nat­u­ral and syn­thetic rub­ber), re­in­forc­ing agents (such as car­bon black and sil­ica), mix­ing agents and ad­di­tive, to eval­u­ate the myr­iad ‘in­ter­lock­ing’ fac­tors re­lated to the proportion­s of these var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als, the struc­tures that they form in com­bi­na­tion and so forth.
