1. A system comprising:
an antenna disposed on one or more of a vehicle or a vehicle component and configured to output an electromagnetic ping; and
a tire including one or more tire plies, at least one of the one or more tire plies including a plurality of split-ring resonators (SRRs), each SRR having a natural resonance frequency configured to shift in response to a change in an elastomeric property of the at least one tire ply, the elastomeric property including one or more of a reversible deformation, stress, or strain.
