Pirelli in­tro­duces Cy­ber Car tech­nol­ogy tyre

Auto components India - - INTERNATIONAL -

Pirelli has in­tro­duced its Cy­ber Car tech­nol­ogy at the 88th Geneva In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show. It en­ables the tyre to in­ter­act di­rectly with the car’s on­board elec­tron­ics and with driver as­sis­tance sys­tems, de­liv­er­ing im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion about the car’s op­er­a­tion to en­sure a safer drive with en­hanced per­for­mance. The new sys­tem will be in the mar­ket by 2018-end.

The Cy­ber Car is the lat­est ap­pli­ca­tion of Pirelli’s Cy­ber Tech­nolo­gies plat­form launched in 2002 with the aim of pro­vid­ing max­i­mum in­te­gra­tion be­tween tyres, cars and driv­ers. Plac­ing sen­sors on the tyres is an in­te­gral part of Pirelli’s Per­fect fit strat­egy. It also in­cludes the P Zero Color Edi­tion and the de­vel­op­ment of spe­cific tyres for in­di­vid­ual cars, de­noted by spe­cial mark­ings on the side­walls.

“Pirelli’s Cy­ber sys­tems are based on a sen­sor placed on the in­side of the tyre con­nected to the Pirelli Cloud. This sen­sor, which weighs just a few grams, mon­i­tors the op­er­at­ing sta­tus of ev­ery tyre and trans­mits the data to an elec­tronic con­trol unit. The in­for­ma­tion col­lected is de­liv­ered to an app, in the case of Pirelli Con­nesso, or to the car’s on­board sys­tems as well as an app, in the case of Cy­ber Car. Pirelli Cy­ber Tech­nolo­gies use spe­cific sys­tems to talk di­rectly to the driver (with Pirelli Con­nesso), or to fleet man­agers (with Cy­ber Fleet), or to both car man­u­fac­tur­ers and driv­ers at the same time (with Cy­ber Car),” the com­pany said.

Key tyre data, such as pres­sure, in­ter­nal tem­per­a­ture and tread depth are among the pa­ram­e­ters that Cy­ber Car can trans­mit to the ve­hi­cle. The sys­tem also has the ca­pa­bil­ity to in­ter­vene and ac­ti­vate sys­tems such as ABS and sta­bil­ity con­trol. Cy­ber Car also in­forms the driver, through the car­maker’s in­ter­face, about the stan­dard op­er­at­ing pa­ram­e­ters of the tyre, such as ver­ti­cal load, tem­per­a­ture and pres­sure, which al­lows timely in­ter­ven­tion if the pres­sures are wrong.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany, Cy­ber Tyre sys­tem will be the next tech­no­log­i­cal evo­lu­tion. The tyre of the fu­ture, based on a tech­ni­cal plat­form, will be able to col­lect even more data, and trans­mit in­for­ma­tion to the car’s on­board sys­tems with ev­ery ro­ta­tion of each wheel.
