Modernizing tire testing with in-situ contact length measurement.

Case study

Client profile: 4th largest tire OEM in the world.


The length of the contact patch informs how the tire interacts with the road and predicts tire lifetime and wear. Partner sought method to measure the length of the contact path in real-time during tire development and testing.


Mesomat is the first solution to provide real-time, in-situ measurement of contact length. Sensors optimized for use in tires are integrated into a patch which is easily adhered to the inner lining of the tire during dynamometer testing. Data is visualized in real-time through a cloud based portal.


Real-time measurement of contact patch length, temperature and pressure provides the richest dataset for high confidence insights into tire performance. Technology being integrated for tire testing and R&D.
