CYBER TYRES FROM PIRELLI
The latest innovation from Pirelli are the Cyber Tyres which have sensors that collect information on various parameters like tyre temperature,air pressure,stress , wear and tear & payloads.
In the future this data will be combined with other sources like service stations and finally with other cars.
The idea is to engage the drivers and aid them in planning routes to save time and also avoid accidents due to bad road conditions.
Traffic congestion and accidents cost a lot of money across the globe , according to some estimates the number runs in hundreds of billions of dollars.
With the availability of space to build roads being at a premium the need for innovative solutions to reduce congestions is paramount.
Earlier traffic signals went through a change in their frequency settings once in five years in developed countries , now with big data from radars and cameras this is being conducted on real time basis in some cases with amazing results.
Transport management systems relying on GPS , social media and data from products like Pirelli’s Cyber tyres can help in reducing the impact of an overcrowded road and the subsequent pollution emissions by up to 20 to 25 % over a period of time.
