What you see here is a concept 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. The unbelievably sophisticated, nature-inspired, magnetic-levitation-infused ball was created by Goodyear and it’s called The Eagle-360!

Goodyear Eagle-360, A Visionary Tire Concept For Future Autonomous Vehicles!

This spherical tire is linked to the car by magnetic levitation rather than axles, so it can rotate on any axis in any direction. This makes the car ultra-maneuverable and could pave the way for smaller carparks and more efficient use of road space because the Eagle-360 allows the car to move sideways.

The Eagle-360 has embedded sensors that allow the tires to assess the local environment and communicate with other vehicles or the local traffic control system.
