Goodyear unveils smart tyre for future urban fleets

July August 2017
Goodyear has unveiled its IntelliGrip Urban, a concept tyre designed for future-generation, autonomous, electric ride-sharing vehicles in urban areas.

The tyre, equipped with sensor-in-tyre technology, is designed to support autonomous vehicle control systems and enhance passenger safety by sensing road and weather conditions. By gathering this critical data and sending it directly to the vehicle’s computer system, it enables the car to optimise speed, braking, handling and stability.

It also features proactive maintenance, enabling fleet operators to precisely identify and resolve tyre-related and potential safety issues before they happen, while its tall and narrow shape reduces the rolling resistance of the tyre in order to increase the energy efficiency and range of the electrical vehicle fleet in an urban environment.
