Pirelli Is Launching Smart Tires That Can Monitor Wear and Load
From Car and Driver
Pirelli is among the first tire manufacturers to introduce a truly “smart” tire, which it calls Connesso (Italian for “connected”) for the aftermarket version and Cyber Tire for the variant it’s selling to automakers. The system delivers a richer well of data than the industry-standard tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS), which transmits real-time readings to the car’s CAN bus and displays tire pressures and sometimes temperatures on your dash. Pirelli’s smart tire certainly can do that, but instead of mounting pressure sensors to each wheel’s air valve, it embeds a combination sensor in each tire’s inner wall that measures pressure, temperature, and vertical load. That’s only the start.
Surveillance Detection, The Art of Prevention, a book by Laura Clark and William Algaier
As much as we would all like to believe that our government and law enforcement agencies can protect us from crime and terrorism, our safety is not completely assured. Certainly, we cannot take the law into our own hands, but we can use legal preventative measures to protect ourselves, our families, our businesses, and our assets. Surveillance detection (SD) is a technique that has been around for a long time and is now being revitalized and implemented worldwide for the war against terror.
