Goodyear’s Air Maintenance Technology (AMT) has been selected by Car & Driver magazine as one of the “ten most promising future technologies” in its 2012 10Best edition.  AMT will enable tires to remain inflated at the optimum pressure without the need for any external pumps or electronics.  All components of the AMT system, including the miniaturized pump, will be fully contained within the tire. Car & Driver editors called AMT an “elegantly simple idea” in their article in the December 2011 issue.
“While the technology is complex, the idea behind the AMT system is relatively simple and powered by the tire itself as it rolls down the road,” said Jean-Claude Kihn, Goodyear’s chief technical officer.

“A tire that can maintain its own inflation is something drivers have wanted for many years. Goodyear has taken on this challenge and the progress we have made is very encouraging,” said Kihn.  “This will become the kind of technological breakthrough that people will wonder how they ever lived without.” AMT is currently under development at Goodyear’s Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio, and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg.
