Tire-Tracking Sensors

This Bridgestone Car Tire Technology Informs Drivers About Tire Problems

— December 10, 2015 — Autos
The Contact Area Information Sensing or CAIS system is a new car care tire technology, developed by Bridgestone, that keeps drivers informed if there are any issues with their tires. The system is built around a sensor that can be attached to the internal wall of the tire and used to monitor the manner in which it interacts with the surface of the road.

Data is analyzed with respect to the traveling conditions, painting a picture of car tire health that can be of use to the driver. In the future, Bridgestone hopes to expand the functionality of the Contact Area Information Sensing car tire technology to enable it to share information with vehicles following behind, so they can anticipate actions from the vehicle in front of them.

This car tire technology shows how the automotive industry continues to embrace connected technology to improve safety on the road.




Trend Themes
1. Connected Car Tires - With Bridgestone's CAIS system, car tires are becoming connected devices, enabling real-time monitoring and feedback to drivers.
2. Predictive Maintenance - CAIS system provides data that can enable predictive maintenance to reduce downtime and costs for both drivers and automotive companies.
3. Safety-centric Design - The focus on safety in automotive design is shifting from reactive safety features to proactive technologies that can prevent accidents and keep drivers safe.
Industry Implications
1. Automotive - CAIS system is set to disrupt the automotive industry with its potential to improve car safety and create new business opportunities in the connected car market.
2. Iot - As car tires become connected devices, IoT companies can explore opportunities in the automotive market by developing sensors and software to improve car safety and performance.
3. Big Data Analytics - With CAIS system generating large amounts of data about car tires, companies specializing in big data analytics can explore opportunities to provide predictive maintenance and safety insights to the automotive industry.
