- To support a vehicle weight
- To transmit accelerating and braking force to the earth
- To change/maintain track direction
- To absorb shock from the highway surface
Tyres, which are the only parts of a vehicle in interaction with the road, serve to steadily grip the surface to transmit forces between the vehicle and the road though driving.
For example, at night, when you have poor visibility, getting detailed info on road conditions would be useful for your safe driving.
The Bridgestone Group‘s “CAIS™ (Contact Area Information Sensing )” is a technology to categorize road conditions in real time into seven different types, fresh snow, dry, wet, slush, compacted snow, and ice by using sensors attached to tyres.
