AbstractTesting aircraft brake and tire systems often results in tire temperatures that makes the aircraft unsafe to approach (due to explosion risk) for up to 45 minutes; this complicates cost effective test execution. This paper describes work on a wireless sensor system that measures multiple tire temperatures and transmits the data to someone at a safe distance (>300 ft). The solution consists of a sensor patch adhered directly to the tire which measures the tire temperature. The patch transmits these measurements to off-tire reader/relay nodes that subsequently sends the data to a system controller and display device.
