Michelin’s ‘Vision’ for Tires

Posted on June 15, 2017 by The Molded Dimensions Team

Today, at the Movin’ On 2017 Conference, Michelin unveiled Vision, a new concept tire that gives consumers exactly what they need, when they need it.Check out the following example:

A young couple gets into their car, which asks them where they are going. They select a destination in the mountains.

“You’ll need winter tires,” the vehicle tells them.

The couple stops at a recharging station, which uses 3D imagine to create a winter tread for their tires, on the spot.

Ultimately, Michelin hopes to make it possible for consumers to get the perfect tires they need for whatever trip they may go on, whether in the mountains, grass or highway, without actually buying new tires and having them installed. This increases the safety of the vehicle, as well as its efficiency.
