Lives can depend on a vehicle's moment-by-moment traction. New European technology promises to make cars as good as experienced, alert drivers at sensing and adjusting to wet, snowy or icy roads.

You?re heading into a curve at highway speed when you spot a suspicious patch of road just ahead. You have a few tenths of a second to guess if it?s wet, snow-packed or icy and adjust your speed accordingly.

Today you?re on your own, but within a few years your car might detect that water, ice or snow before you do, calculate how much traction your car could lose, and flash you a warning or even apply the brakes and stabilise the car as much as physically possible.
