Obvious, or Not-?

NO RATINGS
Its funny how some things seem obvious to me, while others have always puzzled me.  For example, this comment in the article seemed obvious having a basic working knowledge of applied mechanics: ",,,pressure from brakes in a stopped vehicle differs from pressure in a brakes in a moving vehicle, as  attributed to the torque imparted on the calipers by the spinning rotors,"   To me this seemed obvious. 

On the other hand, I have never understood how they get accurate PSI monitors on my car while cruising at 70 mph.  Guess I just never thought too hard about it.

Jae, thanks for sharing this piece of information. There is no doubt that sensor, IoT and automated technology can improve saftey, performance and efficiency of automobiles. Now it's the age of driver less cars and hence these technologies can make the cars more perfect in all sense.

Good point, naperlou. These aren't the kind of applications that receive a lot of attention, but brakes, tire tread and tire inflation are vastly more important to me as a driver than some of the high-profile auto applications, such as infotainment.

This is another good example of the rapid improvement in sensor technology. While not a "sexy" as some other technological improvements it is essential and very important.  Without these more advanced sensors, it would not be possible to do many of the things we seeing.  It is also driving the Internet of Things and Big Data to a large extent.
