Tires are the only thing on a vehicle that touches the ground. That critical position lends itself to breakthrough technology, allowing tires to contribute to enhanced levels of safety and performance. And by 2027, Goodyear aims to reinvent the world of tires and service, delivering data as well as sensor-enabled and artificial intelligence in all of its new products.
With our global tire intelligence platform—called Goodyear SightLine—data from a variety of on-vehicle sensors is sent to our mobility cloud in real time, where unique, customizable algorithms indicate tire health, deliver performance insights and detect potential issues so drivers can seek proactive maintenance.
Goodyear believes in a future powered by new technologies, with a vision of convenient, accessible, sustainable, efficient and safe new mobility experiences.
Goodyear Ventures, our venture capital fund, is fueling this future by partnering and investing in seed-to-growth-stage startups in emerging mobility technology. Leveraging Goodyear’s global resources and technical expertise, Goodyear Ventures is supporting and collaborating with other visionaries that are driving the mobility revolution forward.
Emerging mobility companies are spearheading the future of mobility, but they’re held back by vehicle servicing solutions that are time-intensive, non-digital and difficult to scale.
AndGo by Goodyear is a predictive vehicle servicing platform that provides full vehicle readiness for consumer and commercial fleets. AndGo’s platform solves these hurdles by connecting each vehicle to service providers, such as Goodyear’s nationwide footprint, and facilitating services in a connected and seamless way. The platform functions as a marketplace that becomes more efficient as supply and demand increase, leading to ecosystem benefits such as wider service coverage, increased uptime, lower costs, access to new markets and higher revenues for service providers.
The architecture of tires will look different in the new mobility ecosystem, where ridesharing and autonomous vehicles will become mainstream. Given the shift in vehicle ownership, lower maintenance and longer-lasting tires will be in demand.
Goodyear’s development work in non-pneumatic (or airless) tires (NPTs) is leading to products that are designed to eliminate flats and air pressure checks, contributing to worry-free performance. The technology is part of Goodyear’s strategy to develop maintenance-free options for passenger and commercial vehicles, particularly in fleet applications.
Located in key global markets, Goodyear’s innovation labs keep a finger on the pulse of what is new and next in mobility. The teams work to identify, validate and deliver new ventures and advance Goodyear’s learning agenda. With a focus beyond tires into fleets, autonomous vehicles, connected mobility and electrification, the innovation labs work to build momentum for emerging businesses and investigate new opportunities for future growth.
