Digital: Operating Instructions

With Pirelli We Learn to... DIGITISE

Today’s ongoing digital transformation processes involve many aspects of our daily lives. Pirelli has always embraced technological innovation and was very quick to focus on the potential of the digital world, rapidly transforming all areas of the company: from the factories to the continuous training of employees, to the products themselves and customer relations.

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW
Photographs, films, sketches, technical documents and video installations will all help us follow the main technological innovations that Pirelli has introduced over the years. The students will learn about patents, from those for the first tyres to Pirelli’s current Cyber Tyre, which communicates with the vehicle’s electronics for enhanced road safety. They will find out about driving simulators for virtual tyre testing for any model of car, in any road condition, as well as about the Next MIRS robotic line in Pirelli’s automated, connected and increasingly environmentally friendly factories. Taking inspiration from the programming codes that enable digital systems to function, the students will then build a robot of their own and program and operate it.

OBJECTIVES
The aim is to explain the importance and potential of digital transformations, which must always give top priority to human wellbeing and environmental considerations. The course also aims to promote digital skills among students, empowering them to engage actively and critically with computer programming and computational thinking in order to learn to interact actively and critically with technology.

This course will be in the form of a single in-person meeting.

From Track to Road

With Pirelli We Learn to... EXPERIMENT

Creating high-quality tyres requires extensive research and experimentation. Races on two and four wheels are a crucial open-air testing ground for Pirelli for the development of the models that we use every day on our roads. In cycling, motorcycling and car races, tyres are pushed to their absolute limit on the most demanding tracks in the world and in every imaginable weather condition. The technology gleaned from the track is transferred to the road, bringing comfort, safety and sustainability, along with advanced design and production processes.

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW
The course will start with words, a brief lexicon of the world of racing and rubber. This will take us through more than a century of racing, from the international Peking to Paris Motor Race in 1907 to the latest generations of Formula 1 tyres, taking in the most exciting stories of male and female drivers, from Juan Manuel Fangio to Maria Teresa de Filippis. The visit to the Pirelli Foundation, which is also home to the Historical Archive, will help the students learn about the company’s history of innovation and technological advancements. But also of team work between technicians, workers and engineers in the laboratories and in Pirelli factories around the world, in the technological centres where people work with innovative robotic machines. The students, divided into groups, will build, program and operate a small Formula 1 car.

OBJECTIVES
The course aims to highlight the importance of research and experimentation in order to bring innovation to any field of human knowledge and action. Assisted also by the practical activities, the students will strengthen their teamwork abilities and find out about the world of robotics and coding.

The course will be in the form of an in-person meeting.
