IBM's Global Innovation Outlook: Thoughts on Transportation

IBM recently published its Global Innovation Outlook 2.0, which makes for some pretty interesting reading.

In particular, Chapter Two deals with transportation.

It even makes mention that, "At least one leading tire manufacturer is considering ways to embed microchips in its products to allow future interaction with smart devices built into roads and other parts of the transportation infrastructure."

Think the Michelin Research and Development Corporation in Greenville, SC!
