Dunlop reveals new tyres that can ‘talk’ to your car
An exciting new innovation was revealed at this year’s Geneva Motor Show – chip in tyre technology.
This new invention uses a battery free microchip embedded in the tyre that can communicate with the car’s on board computer.
Information that can be shared include tyre pressures, temperature and even what type of tyre it is allowing the car to refine its systems to offer the best braking and stability performance.
Today’s advanced vehicle control systems can greatly benefit from tyre specific information”, says Marc Engel, Senior Engineer at Goodyear Dunlop. “We have always understood that when we were able to gather this information, we could deliver new levels of driving performance to the car. Today we are showcasing a first concrete step in that direction as we begin to translate the wealth of information received by the tyre back to improving and enhancing the overall driving experience – it is a major step forward.”
Dunlop state that the product is still at development stage and no launch date has been announced yet.
