Pirelli puts his electronic tire on the McLaren supercar

Tire manufacturer Pirelli is launching its e-tire as standard on the McLaren Artura supercar. The frame is connected to the central computer of the car.

The Pirelli Cyber ​​Tire is the superior tire that not only measures air pressure on a tire. A sensor built into the frame sends signals directly to the vehicle’s central computer and also provides data on temperature and acceleration.

The first vehicle to use Pirelli’s Cyber ​​Tire as standard is the McLaren Artura, a hybrid vehicle equipped with technology for a safer driving experience, according to the manufacturer. The sensor in the tires knows if summer or winter tires are on the vehicle and can affect the vehicle’s anti-lock system.

Today, the sensor is battery-powered and weighs about ten grams. In the future, the tire manufacturer aims to power the sensor with energy generated when the tires are rolled. Pirelli thinks the sensor is in a generation or update that may warn of aquaplaning.
