Intelligent Tyres

How will you roll into the future?

The tyre of the future... is smart

No matter what new innovations car technologies bring, tyres are what deliver them to us. The tyres on the car you are driving today are probably already smarter than you think. And as we drive towards an even more electrified, autonomous and connected automotive future, you won’t believe how intelligent tyres are going to become.

We don’t know all that the future holds, but our most advanced tyre technologies, present and future, are good indicators. Step by step, it is bringing us closer to a vision of fully intelligent tyres.

The tyre of the future will change the way you drive forever! Here’s how…

The tyre of the future… has smart sensors

Continental tires with ContiSense™ tire technology

You already rely on your tyres to provide your car with grip, traction and stability in any weather, to keep it rolling, or to bring it to a swift and safe stop, as needed. Modern sensors help you monitor and maintain your tyre pressures, but what if your tyre sensors could do more? The tyre of the future won’t just tell you if it’s underinflated, it will also notify you of potential damage, low tread depth and changes in temperature indicating risky driving conditions.

The tyre of the future… is electrified and reliable

Electrified tyre technology in action

What’s even better than being notified that your tyre pressure isn’t optimised? Having your tyre take care of itself – while it’s rolling. A tyre that can adjust its own air pressure according to the driving situation, road conditions and weather isn’t just convenient. Perpetually optimised tyre pressure also makes for a safer, more energy-efficient and sustainable drive.

The tyre of the future… is connected

Connected tyres within the intelligent car of the future

Shared vehicles make urban mobility modular, flexible and convenient. However, to further reduce costs and lower their environmental impact, they have to be on the road as much as possible. The easiest way to optimise capacity and decrease maintenance is to automate route planning, error reporting and servicing. You won’t have to worry about any of that, because the smart sensors of shared vehicles will self-report any issues to a cloud-based system. Preventative maintenance or repairs will be performed automatically with minimal fuss, so your car can get back on the road – and you can get to your destination.

The tyre of the future… is autonomous

Autonomous cars like robotaxis need smart tyres

Sounds futuristic? Wait until you call your first robotaxi. These autonomous vehicles aren’t just impressively smart and efficient, they are packed with artificial intelligence – from top to tyre. Crucially, their tyres will be able to perform their own maintenance and repair damage automatically, so they can keep on rolling. making public transport even more customisable and accessible.
