- Artificial Intelligence: The concept would also feature an embedded AI processor that would combine information from the tire's sensors with data from vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. The AI processor would analyze these streams of data to recommend a course of action - allowing a vehicle to adapt to a flying or driving mode – and identify and resolve potential tire-related issues before they happen.
While purely a conceptual design, says the company, some of the AERO's featured technologies - such as a non-pneumatic structure and intelligent tire capabilities - are being developed by Goodyear today, while others might become the basis for new ideas and potentially new products in the future.
"Goodyear's concepts," says Helsel, "are meant to trigger a debate on the tires and transport technologies for a new mobility ecosystem."
