According to official data, 30% of all road accidents caused by technical problems associated with damage to the wheels. Why Japanese tyre manufacturer Bridgestone and Microsoft have announced a partnership to develop the world’s first system of tyre monitoring to track the condition of the wheels in real time.
According to representatives of Bridgestone and Microsoft will be called “monitoring System for tire damages” (TDMS). This will be the first such initiative, able to identify the problem in real time.
How will the system TDMS
Software based on cloud platform the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP). For efficient operation, subject to special sensors that analyze the wheels of cars with the help of special algorithms in order to detect changes in the structure of the tire.

When will the system TDMS
Right now the new system of monitoring of damage of Bridgestone tyres available for all fleets and equipment manufacturers using the cloud platform from Microsoft MCVP.
By the way, the tyre manufacturer Pirelli presented a reasonable car tyre support 5G.
A new system of sensors Pirelli Cyber Tire in the future will be able to provide full details of the machine model, driven kilometers, dynamic load and potentially dangerous situations on the road.
The information obtained will allow the car to adapt its management system that will significantly increase the level of safety, comfort and performance. In addition, the system will send the same information to other cars on the road.
