The article reports that Japanese engineers develops a tyre sensor that can detect cars sideslipping more quickly than any other technology to improve road safety. The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System developed at Yokohama Rubber monitors a tyre's pressure, identifies the condition of the road and the movement of the tyres across its surface. Yokohama claims that it is able to detect a vehicle sideslip 0.25 seconds faster than existing systems as the sensors are directly inside the tyres.
