Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige News -

An in­tel­li­gent tyre from Pirelli is said to max­imise the elec­tronic sys­tems in any car by com­mu­ni­cat­ing with its on­board com­put­ers. The Cy­ber Lean tyre has a mi­crochip em­bed­ded in it to reg­is­ter tyre pres­sure and tem­per­a­ture, and the ve­hi­cle’s load. It should be avail­able in 2010 and will be fol­lowed by a Cy­ber Tyre that can ad­vise the car’s elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol and anti-skid brak­ing sys­tems on the state of the rub­ber.
