Nexen Tire America, Inc., a worldwide leader in high-performance, passenger, SUV/light truck and winter tire technology, today announced it has developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based tire-performance prediction system. Nexen Tire will use machine-learning technology in the design stage to predict tire-performance parameters more precisely and rapidly, such as fuel efficiency, noise, stopping distance and handling.

The ability to forecast tire performance early in the development process has the benefit of reducing the quantity of prototypes produced and the development time. Traditionally a method called Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used to build and analyze virtual 3D-tire models. With FEA, the mechanical properties can be precisely predicted through numerical calculation, but the process requires a lot of computer-processing power and can take a long time, slowing the development process. The newly developed AI-based tire-performance prediction system will allow faster and more accurate tire design and performance improvement during the design stage, adding a valuable tool to the existing FEA-based performance-prediction methods.

Nexen has vast amounts of tire data from both current and historical testing that was used to create a forecasting model with accurate predictive capabilities. However, the predictions made by the new AI-based system are only as good as the data that is input, therefore it was necessary to assure only quality data was used. To assure the integrity of the data, Nexen Tire created a data pre-processing technology that detects irregularities in the data and screens them out.

“We aim to finalize the development of the ‘Virtual Brain Loop System,’ a tire-development system based on our own virtual design technology, and apply it to OE and RE tires,” said Seong Rae Kim, Researcher of THE NEXEN univerCITY, Nexen Tire’s central R&D Institute. “Through combined industry-academic research, we intend to increase talent training and R&D skills.”

Professor Seoung Bum Kim of Korea University and Professor Ki Chun Lee of Hanyang University collaborated on the newly created tire-performance prediction system using AI technology.

Nexen Tire America, Nexen’s subsidiary in the United States has completely revamped its website and added several new features to make it more user-friendly. The site nexentireusa.com has now become a highly informative website which is designed to make it every useful to help consumers find just the right tire for their vehicle.

Some of the most notable updates to the website include a new feature that makes it possible for browsers to text tire and dealer information to their mobile phone so that they can look it up easily when they are at a tire shop. They can also send the details of the tire that is most suitable for their vehicle to their email address. There is a button that provides them with the option to print their tire selection and dealer information. The revamped warranty registration page can be used to register tire purchases in an easy two-step process. In the first step, customers need to fill out a form to register tires with the Department of Transportation so that they get to see safety-related and recall information. In the second step, they can register their tires with Nexen’s Roadside Assistance program. As part of the program, they are entitled to receive 36 months of roadside assistance in the United States and Canada with a free on-site tire change or tow service.

Commenting on the new website, Kyle Roberts, senior director of marketing at Nexen Tire America Inc. said that since the all-new website was launched in June, the company has received highly favorable feedback from its customers and dealers regarding the website. He went on to add that the newest update is meant to make tire shopping even easier and to provide more customers with more information when they plan to purchase new tires. With the onset of seasons of inclement weather, Nexen Tire America also wanted to highlight its warranty and roadside assistance programs, to give customers an added feeling of safety when they use Nexen tires.

Dealers can use the website to gain easy access to the NexenACE dealer portal. The portal has a lot of valuable information and a number of training videos for Nexen dealers. They can also use the portal to earn points that they can accumulate with the goal of winning Nexen brand merchandise.
