Thank you Carsurance for the amazing infographic. However even today I was asked what’s the future of cars. What is with gas stations. Where will mechanics be?
Ok look. You’ll still have TIRES and wheels. Alignments and balanced plus rotating tires. Let’s not forget replacing them.
For example and for starters, the first concept is named “BHO3”.
These offer the possibility of charging the batteries of electric cars. All by transforming the heat generated by the rolling tire into electrical energy. Talk about that and the future of cars. The second concept named “Triple Tube” contains three tubes that adjust tire inflation pressure in response to changing road conditions. Thereby delivering new levels of performance and versatility.
Goodyear also is considering launching
The concept, named Oxygene, has a unique structure that features living moss growing within the sidewall. This open structure and the tire’s smart tread design absorb and circulate moisture and water from the road surface, allowing photosynthesis to occur and therefore releasing oxygen into the air.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) more than 80% of people who live in air pollution-measured urban areas exposed to air quality levels that exceed WHO limits.
“With more than two-thirds of the world population expected to live in cities by 2050, the demands on transport networks in urban environments will increase substantially,” said Chris Delaney, President of Goodyear Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Smarter, greener infrastructure and transport will be crucial in addressing the most pressing challenges of urban mobility and development.”
