Structural Health Monitoring of automobile tires has
been an active area of research in the last few
years. Tire manufacturers are looking to develop a
sensor system that can monitor the health of an
automobile tire. A sensor system that can measure
the overall strain of a tire is known as a
centralized strain sensing system. However, a
centralized strain sensing system cannot find the
location and severity of the damage on the tire,
which is a basic requirement. Various sensors such
as acceleration and optical sensors have also been
proposed to be used together to get more local
damage information on the tire but a tire equipped
with multiple sensors is neither practical nor cost
effective. We have developed a strain sensing system
that performs accurate, local strain measurements on
the tire and transmits them to a console inside the
vehicle wirelessly. We have also developed a
reliable and an energy efficient geographic routing
protocol for transporting strain data wirelessly
from a tire surface to the driver of the automobile.
