In September 2019, ZF OPENMATIS, a subsidiary of* ZF and*Maxion Wheels*announced the joint development of the world's first fully-integrated wheel sensor system. The multi-service Smart Wheel Connectivity Solution will track, analyze and broadcast key data such as tire pressure, temperature, wheel load, and other wheel and tire performance metrics to drivers, fleet operators, mobility providers, and infrastructure authorities. This integration of technology in wheels will drive its competitors to adapt with the advancement to maintain their position in the market. As this development will attract major OEMs in the market to prefer wheels with such sensors which provides hand on data about wheel performance.
