The system analysis of the main directions of the fourth scientific and technological revolution, called "Industry 4.0" in the field of road transport, is conducted in the article. The essence of the industry 4.0 is the development of the digital economy using cyberphysical systems, the Internet of things and large data. Applicable to road transport can be identified three areas: the creation of an unmanned vehicle, the development of technological support for the movement of trucks in the convoy, the development and implementation of "automobile Internet". At the same time, there are a number of technological, legal and ethical problems that hamper the large-scale development of a new generation of transport.

An important role in the safety of the car's movement is played by the state of the operated tires. If the tire pressure decreases, the deflection increases. There is a flattening of the tire, which increases the bearing surface. The article presents the development of tire pressure monitoring systems. When using the tire, there is always the possibility of a puncture. Often this happens far from the car-care center and in this case, an urgent repair of the tire is required. A solution of this problem is presented with the help of a viscous substance or sealant. Also, the article describes the design of airless tires, which are not afraid of punctures.
