While F1 teams are expected to line up by the droves to incorporate this new technology into their teams' processes, their counterparts at NASCAR might have to wait a while. NASCAR tires have inner and outer carcasses, making the detection of the outer carcass temperature a more difficult proposition (according to BERU engineers). Perhaps more restrictive, NASCAR currently does not allow real-time tracking of tire data, so the technology could only be used in testing and practice laps. So, what about improving the gas mileage on your minivan? BERU is looking into developing cheap methods that will apply their technology to commuter vehicles. More importantly, the trucking industry could benefit greatly from optimal tire configurations. According to BERU, cost is a function of volume, and they would not offer estimates for their current technology.
