Michelin Track Connect, a fully networked solution for car tires, has been awarded the 2018 Creative Prize at Tire Cologne in Germany. The award presented by the Bundesverbands Reifenhandel und Vulkaniseur-Handwerk e. V. (BRV) recognizes the high degree of innovation of the new smartphone application. In conjunction with the high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tire, it enables optimum performance on the race track and provides the driver with real-time data on the tires.
The first fully networked application for sports car use
Michelin Track Connect will be available for the first time for a passenger car tire, designed specifically for sporty and ambitious drivers. Tailor-made for fast laps on track days and on closed circuits, the Michelin Track Connect application collects temperature and air pressure data via sensors integrated in the tire. These are continuously calibrated with track and weather values entered in advance, and if required, advise the driver to adjust the air pressure to improve performance.
