Electrical engineers have invented a printed sensor made of metallic carbon nanotubes that can monitor the tread of tires in real-time. In its first demonstration, the cheap, simple innovation shows it can measure tire thickness down to the millimeter while surviving the harsh conditions of the interior of a tire.
