Bridgestone Tires has made headlines with their smart tires. "Today's mobility technology is unaware of what is happening in a tire and on the road surface, which is a barrier to fully autonomous driving, the company warned in a press statement.
But luckily, with its "tire sensors and powerful simulation capabilities, Bridgestone is addressing this need by building a next-generation digital twin of the tire." The Tokyo-based company says its smart tire will cost around $175.
The shoes offer "data tracking and real-time analysis will help runners," according to a press release. No release date yet, but this prototype might be real soon: ASICS says they'll debut at some point in 2020.
Finally, Sony debuted a surprise prototype car earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas, jam-packed with 33 sensors and a slick design. "I believe the next mega-trend will be mobility," said CEO Kenichiro Yoshida.
