Pirelli has invented a tyre that can talk to your car
Tech developed by the Ferrari FXXK could shape how tyres actively make cars safer.
I really never thought that tires could be made intelligent like this, but man this is futuristic!

Re: Pirelli has invented a tyre that can talk to your car
Other than the PSI readings - that many cars are now offering as standard via TPMS - everything else is pretty useless. Tyre wear? Sure, but that's a topic visited once in 3, 4 or 5 years.
However, this kind of data could be very useful for commercial vehicle operators (trucks as well as buses). Might also make life easier for fleet managers.
Nice effort by their PR though. PR teams can usually talk about the 50 different colours of a plain vanilla white wall.
