A first—Pirelli now equips as standard, a tire with sensors that can talk to a car!
Pirelli’s Cyber Tire system, made up of a sensor in each tire that gathers vital data for safe driving, is linked to software integrated into the car’s onboard computer. That car is the McLaren Artura complete with sensor-equipped tires: a hybrid supercar packed with technology for an even safer and more involved driving experience.
Cyber Tire technology offers a plethora of information to the car and driver: the tire’s ‘passport’—the type of tire, a winter or summer version, prescribed pressure, load index and speed rating—as well as current running information, i.e. temperature and pressure.
