INNOVATING FOR MODERN MOBILITY CHALLENGES
In a more connected world, safe and secure transportation is at the core of how we live, work and play. For example, at night, when you have poor visibility, getting detailed information on road conditions would be helpful for your safe driving.
The Bridgestone Group's "CAIS™ (Contact Area Information Sensing *)" is a technology to classify road conditions in real time into seven different types, dry, semi-dry, wet, slush, fresh snow, compacted snow, and ice, by using sensors attached to tires.

BRIDGESTONE TIRE CAN IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE
Bridgestone's run-flat technology uses the tires' reinforced sidewalls to support a vehicle's weight even after a puncture. The Bridgestone Group run-flat tires give drivers peace of mind. Unlike conventional tires which need to be changed or repaired immediately after a puncture, run-flat tires can safely drive on for up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) at 50 mph (80 km/h). *
*Drivable distance under conditions based on ISO technical standard or specific vehicle tests.
