Goodyear's self-inflating tyre
One of the innovative technologies on display at the 82nd Geneva International Motor Show is Goodyear's Air Maintenance Technology, a self-inflating tyre system that can help reduce fuel consumption.
Visitors to the show will see how tyres can remain inflated at the optimum pressure without the need for any external pumps, electronics or driver intervention.
“Consumers often overlook the importance of maintaining proper tyre pressure,” said Jean-Claude Kihn, Goodyear senior vice president and chief technical officer. “We believe this technology will have immediate positive impact for drivers in terms of performance and for the environment through improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and extended tyre life. Goodyear has taken on this challenge and the progress we have made is very encouraging to the point we are now ready to demonstrate it in Geneva for the first time.”
Additional new Goodyear technologies on display include the company’s Electric Vehicle Tyre Technology developed for CityHush, a European Union-sponsored project to reduce noise in cities throughout Europe, the Spring Tyre – an airless tyre designed originally for use on the moon - and a concept tyre made with BioIsoprene, a revolutionary bio-based alternative for petroleum-derived isoprene.
