Picture of the Day: Reinventing the Wheel
At this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, tire manufacturer Goodyear unveiled a concept tire dubbed the Eagle-360. The spherical, 3-D printed tire is aimed at the long-term future when autonomous driving is expected to be more mainstream, allowing for what they call ‘ultimate manoeuvrability’.
The concept tire also features sensors that communicated road and weather conditions to the vehicle’s control system. According to a recent study from Navigant Research, 85 million autonomous-capable vehicles are expected to be sold annually around the world by 2035.
