Goodyear - BHO3 Concept

Apart from vehicles of all sorts, Tyre manufacturers are also showcasing its wares at the Geneva Motor Show. For the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, two groundbreaking concepts were unveiled.

“These concept tyres reimagine the role that tires may play in the future. We envision a future in which our products become more integrated with the vehicle and the consumer, more environmentally friendly and more versatile.” said Goodyear Senior Vice President and Chief Technical Officer Joe Zekoski.

The first concept, called BHO3, uses specialised materials that is said to be able to generate electricity by transforming the heat created, into electrical energy.

Triple Tube is the second concept that supposedly contains three tubes that can adjust tire inflation pressure according to changing road conditions, to give better performance.
