Intelligent Tires of the Tomorrow

Your daily selection of the latest crowdfunding projects

According to


Part of Hankook Tire’s annual Design Innovation Project, this collaboration with a student team at the Royal College of Art explores the theme, “Extending Future Life Beyond Mobility.” Adapted for autonomous vehicles in private, public, and commercial scenarios, the three resulting designs — dubbed Aeroflow, HLS 23, and Hexonic — identify and present solutions unique to each context.

Aeroflow is an advanced aerodynamic tire with maximized downforce for use in single driver or autonomous hyper-racing circuits of the future. It disperses the flow of air by instantaneously expanding the width of the treads while maintaining the contact surface. Hidden wings strengthen the downforce of the tire, enhancing stability in corners and traction in the straightaway. Additional fans on the lateral sides absorb the air and release it in the rear to maximize acceleration.
