Autonomous vehicles with smart tires are on the way

In the future, tires designed for autonomous vehicles will require smart characteristics in addition to traditional ones such as wet grip. The sensor technology in tires will provide us with even more information on the driving conditions and their changes.

We will be seeing even more driver assist features, especially in premium tires, within a few years. The popularization of smart tires and autonomous driving is also likely to reduce traffic accidents, says Mika Penttilä, Head of Digital Technology for Nokian Tyres.
