Tyre sensors to become an important part of Continental’s in-car network
Prior to the start of the IAA show, which is currently taking place in Frankfurt, Continental’s Dr Elmar Degenhart announced the introduction of new tyre-based technology. The Executive Board chairman stated: “In future we’ll build sensors into tyres that are capable of immediately sensing the texture of a road surface. In this way we will turn the tyre into an important component in our in-car sensor network.”
Degenhart added that “by this means Continental will supplement its unique, learning all-in-one system for anticipatory driving.” The automotive systems supplier and tyre manufacturer currently is exhibiting itself at the IAA as “pioneer for connected driving” and with this is pursuing its “Vision Zero” goal of no accidents.
