Goodyear showed the video embedded below to demonstrate its Eagle-360 concept tire. The tires are spherical balls with the ability to adapt to weather conditions and be 3D-printed according to your location and driving habits. It uses magnetic levitation to keep the tires with the car and a lot of other sensors and smarts built in to maximize safe driving conditions and wear. By being a sphere, it is also able to parallel park by simply moving sideways.
The Goodyear Eagle-360 is our vision for a tire for the long-term future that looks radically different from tires today…it’s a sphere! The unique shape means ultimate manoeuvrability, safety and connectivity for autonomous vehicles.
