Goodyear has revealed a concept tyre that can create its own electricity using living moss grown within the sidewall. “We’ve got our prototype intelligent tyre on the stand today,” he said. “Five or six years ago, that was a crazy concept.

Even fewer can be seen from large cities. In almost every town, big and small D But don’t we need all those lights to ensure our safety? The answer from light engineers, light pollution control advocates and astronomers is an emphatic “no.” J Legislation isn’t the only answer to light pollution problems .

Goodyear has revealed a concept tyre that can create its own electricity using living moss grown within the sidewall.

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the Goodyear Oxygene features a smart tread design that absorbs water from the road surface as well as CO2 from the atmosphere before releasing oxygen as a result of photosynthesis.

It also harvests energy created during photosynthesis to power a host of embedded electronics, including onboard sensors and even an LED light strip that changes colour to warn other road users of upcoming manoeuvres, such as lane changes or braking.

The tyre manufacturer estimates that if every vehicle in Paris used these tyres, nearly 3,000 tonnes of oxygen would be generated and more than 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide would be absorbed.

Speaking to Motoring Research, Goodyear’s director of consumer technology, Percy LeMair, hinted that elements of the concept tyre could make it to production in the near-future.

“We’ve got our prototype intelligent tyre on the stand today,” he said. “Five or six years ago, that was a crazy concept. Now it’s reality.”

It's not hard to find examples of pollution in our society. But it is hard to define exactly what pollution is . For example, is a can tossed on the ground pollution ? 5. People with respiratory health problems prefer living in polluted areas.

Pollution - no easy answers . It's not hard to find examples of pollution in our society. 3. Some pollutants contaminate water, air, land and can travel over long distances. 4. Pollution was a serious problem when people lived in scattered settlements.

The prototype intelligent tyre uses sensors to monitor information such as wear, temperature and pressure. As well as reporting issues to drivers and fleet managers via a mobile app, it can provide an estimate of how long the tyre will last.

Like the intelligent tyre, the Oxygene concept uses Li-Fi internet to allow the tyre to connect to the ‘internet of things’. The tyre doesn’t rely on air, while the materials used to make it can be recycled easily.

Another prototype on the Goodyear stand at Geneva is a tyre intended to increase electric vehicle range by up to 30 percent.

Pirelli confirms first tyre selections of 2018 season

  Pirelli confirms first tyre selections of 2018 season Pirelli has revealed the driver’s first tyre selections of the year for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix later this month. The Italian tyre manufacturer will bring the purple-walled ultra-soft tyre, red marked super-soft tyre and – the hardest compound on offer – the soft tyre to Melbourne. The majority of the 2018 grid has favoured the choice of the softest compound available, with reigning champions Mercedes, Williams and McLaren opting for nine sets of ultra-soft tyres. Ferrari has taken a more conservative approach with drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen taking three sets of soft tyres and two less sets of ultra-softs than its closest rivals. The last of the top three teams Red Bull has given both its drivers the same number of specifications for each compound, with Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen using eight ultra-soft tyres, three super-softs and two sets of softs. The rest of the grid sees not too much variety of choice, Renault has taken the same approach as Ferrari with seven sets of the ultra-soft tyre available, but is the only team bar Haas’ Romain Grosjean to bring four sets of super-soft tyres.

Water pollution can cause a lot of problems other than just detriments to human health. When water is seriously polluted in a certain area, the soil, plants, animals, fish, and even insects suffer. Fish that live in a polluted water source die off quickly

“They also need low rolling resistance to increase range, while tyre noise is more of an issue than it is in a standard car.”
