Home > TPMS News > Are intelligent tires in your future?

The last decade has been a boon for technologies like traction and stability control, but the tire itself has remained relatively low tech. Schrader Electronics is reportedly looking to change that equation with a "smart tire" that could be production ready within three years. The electronics company already knows a thing or two about tires, as a self-proclaimed global pioneer of the Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems that stabilize today's trucks and crossovers. Schrader claims that its Smart Tire tech utilizes sensors on the tire itself that wirelessly transmits data to receivers in the wheel housing and is routed to the vehicle's ECU sensor. Schrader is working with Pirelli to bring its new tire tech to market starting in 2010. The first tire, called 'Cyber Tyre Lean," will transmit pressure, temperature, average load and the number of revolutions. Click here to find out more information on TPMS! The company claims that the fully-integrated "Cyber Tyre" will transmit information on "tread depth, pressure and temperature, along with the shape of its footprint and the amount of load it is under, will be combined with precise readings of road conditions to optimize control of the vehicle's dynamics." Schrader expects to offer the Cyber Tyre by 2013. Hit the jump to read over the Schrader Electronics press release.
