Do any companies make Wi-Fi RFID tags specifically for this application?

—Name withheld


I am unaware of any Wi-Fi RIFD tags or readers designed specifically for tracking tires. Generally speaking, Wi-Fi RFID tags are fairly large, as they house a battery and a printed circuit board. Most companies use passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) transponders and readers to track them. Here are some articles that might be of interest as you pursue a tire-tracking solution:
