CPI enables intelligent tyres that reduce carbon emissions and improve safety

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), the UK’s technology innovation provider for process manufacturing, announced that it is collaborating with Bath University and Silent Sensors to develop a key component for the future of intelligent tyres, using piezoelectric energy harvesting, which converts mechanical motion into electrical energy. This component will be part of the innovative Silent Sensors Tyre Management System (TMS) for vehicles. The technology, which is being funded by Innovate UK, will enable the production of TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems) sensors that can extract energy from the tyre.
