Goodyear Spherical Tire Is Internet Connected

What Goodyear envisions is a tire that constantly samples the surface of the road it is driving on and shares that information not only with the car it is mounted on but also other cars in the area. Is there ice in the middle of a turn? If so, it can let the car’s computer know so that traction control and vehicle stability systems can be activated in real time. A car a mile away will also know to slow down when approaching that same corner a few minutes later. Goodyear proposes to use a tire tread design patterned after brain coral. The design allows the tread to stiffen for high performance driving or soften to absorb water when the going gets wet.
