Tire technology is part of privacy battles

In the current climate of concern about personal and corporate privacy, every technological advance that sends information automatically is scrutinized for its security, but is also questioned for the possibility of revealing private information. Still, can a tire monitor really tell tales about you and your activities? This question involves the entire system in new automobiles and larger trucks. For some years now, advocates for privacy have argued that systems in place that can track speed and location can be used to unduly penalize drivers, among other concerns.

We will look at the legal and ethical considerations behind the latest regulations, particularly in Europe. We will also compare the unique situation of motor vehicle driving and ownership considering these rules.

Read the article and get an insight into the following aspects:

  • Data and the individual
  • Reporting cars and legality
  • EU mandates and security
  • The ultimate in communication on wheels, from your wheels
