The major trends in the automotive sector – connected, autonomous & shared vehicles – directly translate into the tire industry.
The tire industry is increasingly integrating technology into tires in order to make them “smarter”. This technology helps prolonging tire wear, increasing road safety, strengthening road performance and driving comfort, raising fuel efficiency and diminishing CO2 emission. The technology can at the same time be seen as forerunner for self-driving vehicles, which need to be able to detect road conditions so to be able to adapt driving style accordingly.
This conference will discuss the greatest challenges OEMs and tire manufacturers are facing within the field of smart tires, as well as the new trends of 2018.
Focus areas will be: Autonomous driving, fleet management, tire connectivity, sensor standard, processing collected data.
