Smart Tags and Sensors

Support the coronavirus global response effort

On 4 May the European Union joined forces with global partners to kick-start the Coronavirus Global Response, a worldwide pledging effort to raise €7.5 billion of funding to rapidly develop and deploy universally available and affordable diagnostics, treatments and vaccines against the coronavirus.

The opening event already raised €7.4 billion, including a significant contribution of €1 billion mobilised by Horizon 2020.  This marks the role of research and innovation in the worldwide pledging marathon, which will continue in the following weeks.

To fight the coronavirus, the world urgently needs effective and safe diagnostics, treatments and vaccines – without these we ALL remain vulnerable.

The crisis requires a response of unprecedented scale, speed and solidarity – the global research and innovation community is already mobilised but we need to do more.

Silent Sensors is an innovative company that designs and creates smart tags and sensors.

Embedded in rubber and elastomer based materials and powered by energy harvesting and micro batteries where needed, these tags and sensors generate data from mobile assets that help companies reduce costs, improve overall performance and extend an asset’s lifetime. The value is in the data.

Our R&D is primarily focused on creating this vital component of the Intelligent Tyre, which itself is designed to provide more cost efficient tyres for commercial vehicles and logistics companies.

Our Technology

RFID Tags

We use cutting edge additive printing technology to make a new generation of RFID tags. Light, flexible and robust, these tags can be fitted to physical assets made of rubber and polymers both in and after the manufacturing process.

Energy Harvesting

We are actively working on one of the most import issues of the day: generate energy so that tags and sensors can work ‘forever’. By eliminating the need to change batteries, tags and sensors can be built into physical assets without the cost of future maintenance.

Sensors

We work with expert partners to design and manufacture function-specific sensors that measure and monitor performance, and integrate with systems architectures. Our sensors can be fitted both in and after the manufacturing process.

Cloud and App

Telematics neutral with open APIs, data generated by tags and sensors is outputted directly to ERPs and other Cloud based systems. Dashboards and Apps for monitoring and managing lifecycle performance can be customised as needed

Tyre Lifecycle Management

For tyre manufacturers and resellers, fleet operators and managers, retreaders and remoulders.

A very cost effective way to monitor and manage a tyre throughout its life. Improves supplier efficiencies and operational performance; reduces risk of damage, loss and accidents; eliminates errors in recording data; keeps inventories balanced and properly valued.

Installed as in inlay during hot cure manufacturing process or as a patch for the After Market.

Unique identity which serves as a Certificate of Provenance to track and trace its physical location from manufacture to distribution, warehousing, usage, repair, retread and recycle at the end of its usable life. 

• Frequency 433 MHz UHF
• Range up to 3 metres
• Read by Hub, Smartphone App and Reader

• Temperature reading accurate to ± 2°C
• Pressure measurement range • 0 to 92 psi
• Pressure reading accurate to ±1psi under normal pressure
• Operating temperature from -40° to +85°C

Unique Tag ID registered in the Cloud at date of manufacture and associated with tyre at moment of installation.

Reports data in real time to driver via a gauge, pictogram display, low-pressure warning light and smartphone App.

Telematics neutral with open APIs to integrate with the vehicle’s existing sensing systems and outputted directly to Cloud based Management Dashboards, ERPs and other systems.

Upcoming Events

One of the best ways we can be known and get to meet people, companies and organisations is to exhibit and attend trade and technology events. We have been lucky to meet and engage with people who have become technology partners, suppliers and investors.
