Now available worldwide, the system is completely updated and offers faster and even more accurate critical data collection including tread depth, inflation levels and other factors.

Using EMTrack, the company's trained tyre techs can perform fleet surveys with a special scanning tool, and performance data is automatically uploaded via Bluetooth to a cloud-based platform where it can easily be accessed but is also password protected.

End users can then download the data into tyre performance reports that are customisable and easy to read. All can be viewed in real time, regardless of location, via the Goodyear EMTrack app. A user can even zero in on a specific tyre or calculate costs per hour or per tonne, among other vital metrics.

Eric Matson, global field engineering manager at Goodyear, said: "This will give mining, construction, quarry and port operators an enhanced platform so they can make even more informed decisions about their valuable tyre assets.

"Among other benefits, this will help end users identify, if applicable, maintenance opportunities to help ensure optimal tyre performance…and the information collected through Goodyear EMTrack can also help in forecasting future tyre requirements."

Goodyear has 48 facilities in 22 countries as well as two innovation centres in Akron, Ohio, US, and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg.
