UK SME Silent Sensors Ltd has developed a new technology, products, and services to manage tyre safety, maintenance and manufacturing. The company’s technology tracks and manages tyres from the manufacturing process, through the supply chain, and onto the road, with a continuous stream of data being collected in the cloud and presented on the driver’s dashboard, or as warnings to the driver on the road. Silent Sensors’ technology will become part of the tyre’s whole life-cycle, leading to safer roads, and a cleaner environment.
Silent Sensors have engaged with CPI to commence a new product development programme which will improve existing antennae designs and incorporate printed sensors into the tyre manufacturing process and associated supply chain. As part of this development program CPI undertook an Innovation Integrator® assessment on Silent Sensors in order to evaluate the current state of the business, and identify its strengths, weaknesses, and the next steps required to progress innovation.
