ERJ staff report (DS)
Brussels - Just as the weak 2011/2012 Winter season ends, Bridgestone is pushing its newest developments and commitment to the products for the next Winter season.
The company said it it stepping up investment in Winter tyre development and is testing the tyres using new, objective techniques.
Objective testing measures vehicle movement quantitatively, enabling engineers to calculate the tyre grip force in contact with the frozen surface. The data provides the platform for much more precise tyre design. The system installed at the winter proving ground matches that at Bridgestone's Rome Proving ground.
