Pirelli tyres has entered into pioneering partnership with brake and technology systems specialists to develop leading edge solutions for the car industry.
The Italian tyres firm will bring its intelligent ‘Cyber Tyre’ to the table as part of a cop-operative technological agreement with Brembo brake systems specialists and technology stytems manufactuer Magneti Marelli.
Under the project, Pirelli’s innovative ‘Cyber Tyre’, which provides tyres with actual memory, will be integrated with technology from the other two companies to achieve specific performance and safety related technological solutions.
Pirelli states that a particular focus for the trio will be the development of applications in the area of behicle safety stysems, along with reducing environmental impact in line with international regulations and the European Union CO2 emissions limits set to enter into force in 2012.
The exciting ‘Cyber Tyre’ is billed as the first ‘memory’ tyre and functions with the aid of an onboard computer.
Every identifying item of the tyre, from its current state to its operation in different conditions, including eventual total deflation (in the case of the Run Flat), are registered and transmitted by a transponder installed under the tread.
The transmission takes place via an aerial positioned inside the tyre and another installed in the wheel housing of the car.
