The Future Car Will Have Intelligent Tires


This year a popular tire producer, Goodyear Company, presented two innovations in Genève, in the field of mobility. First was a conceptual tire with an artificial intelligence, Eagle 360 Urban, which will be able to recognize the environment, make decisions, modify itself and be interactive. In the other hand, Goodyear tire IntelliGrip Urban is developed for the new generation of autonomous cars and with its embedded sensors technology will enable higher safety of passengers in the car.

Eagle 360 Urban


This tire is made with a 3D printer and it is based on the spherical shape. But, this time Goodyear made a step forward and developed a first conceptual tire with Artificial Intelligence which can recognize the environment, modify itself and be interactive. By embedding artificial intelligence Goodyear added the “brain” to this tire and at the same time equipped it with bionic skin and variable tread. That way the tire became a part of “nervous system” of the vehicle end IoT elements. It can adjust fast to the changeable circumstances and to the development of need to mobility as a service – MaaS – for fleets and its users.

The artificial intelligence enables Eagle 360 urban to continuously and in real time recognize the state of the road and its surrounding areas. At the same time it is able to review their situation using neural networks, programmed with in-depth learning algorithms, process collected information, make decisions and also learn and optimally adjust his future responses.

The tire may also be adjusted by using its own variable tread and the interface between the tire and the vehicle. In the case of damage, a self-healing process is activated. Artificial intelligence even allows communication with other vehicles, and all other elements that build the IoT, and thus pass on the information obtained and the knowledge gained.

Autonomous vehicles will have to learn how to deal with multiple potential variables with which drivers face every day, and it will require access to data and the ability to learn. According to forecast, Goodyear tires will then have even more important role than today.

The tread recognizes environment


The tread has a bionic surface layer with high capacity to recognize environment, which allows the network of sensors to collect the information about the road and the weather conditions. The data is submitted to the tire so it would be able to be optimally adapted, as well as to “nervous system” of the vehicle so that it will enhance braking, maneuverability, and efficiency.

Besides, the collected information performed procedures and their performance is delivered to all other elements which make IoT so that it would spread it further to all tires and vehicles which will travel the same route.




Variable tread tire adapts to road conditions


Intelligent tread proactively enables security in all conditions. Its surface is made from elastic polymer, it is also limber as man’s skin, meaning it stretches and shrinks. With the variable tread and bionic surface, this tire modifies itself and formulates the most appropriate “design” for current weather and road conditions.

Bionic skin is improving under the principle of self-treatment


Bionic skin or surface layer allows repair on the principle of its own treatment. In the case of damage bionic skin, tire sensors in the tread recognize the place of the problem and the tire rotates and change the contact area, thus the pressure on the damaged area decreases and the process of self-treatment occurs.

Bionic surface layer with artificial intelligence measures current tire wear and predicts how it will happen in the future; this enables automated tire and proactive maintenance.

Self-treatment is allowed by dedicated developed materials that are flowing to the damaged area and interact physically and chemically to achieve molecular bonds and thereby shut the damaged area.

Moving in all directions


Spherical shape allows movement in all directions and contributes to greater comfort, safety, and agility. This form is suitable due to limited space in the cities of the future (less space for parking, shared use of vehicles, simple replacement, etc.)

The new generation of tires will bring value to the vehicle producers and it will surely enable almost continuous drive and proactive maintenance of vehicle tires.
