The environmental impact stemming from scrapped tires has indirectly affected ecological sustainability. One effective approach to mitigate the impact of tires on the environment is to enhance the wear resistance of tires. However, balancing wear resistance and meeting performance control requirements can be challenging. Therefore, improving drivers’ driving habits can be regarded as another way of prolonging tire usage. In this study, we aim to develop a suitable sensor for tires that can detect tire overcontrol to reduce the possibility of excessive wear. However, commercially available sensors are designed for use within the interior of tires and are commonly used rigid parts and components to detect microstrains. Hence, the primary objective of this study is to develop and design a special strain gauge for tires while discussing and recording the tire strain characteristics during tire operation and after the sensor is embedded into the tire. This approach helps in finding the critical value of tire overcontrol. The findings of this study can be integrated into in-car systems to remind drivers, prompting them to reduce their control to extend the service life of tires, ultimately reducing the environmental impact associated with excessive tire replacements.
