In summer, we all try to park our car in the shade. But it is not always possible to avoid the sun beating down on your car, especially during a heat wave.

Tyres brands have placed future mobility at the heart of their projects. The safety of motorists involves the prevention of tread wear and tyre pressure. But not only! The condition of roads used on a daily basis affects damage to the tread, which is often not detected immediately. And, damaged tyres can alter the handling of the vehicle. The real time tyre monitoring system developed by Bridgestone and the Microsoft platform for connected vehicles closes this gap.
