These self-driving trucks are getting smart tires.

Gatik’s autonomous box trucks are going to be the first AVs on the road to roll on Goodyear’s ultra-intelligent data-collecting tires. Using its proprietary Sightline tech, the tires can measure their own air pressure, the amount of friction between the rubber and the road surface, the amount of tread that’s left, and the temperature of the air around the tire. This should help improve safety and efficiency, the companies claim.
