Tokyo Motor Show-Yokohama To Show Visitors A Glimpse Into Future Tyre Technology

The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced that it will participate in the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019,  to be held at Tokyo Big Sight in Koto-ku, Tokyo, from October 23 through November 4 (open to the general public from October 25). This year’s Yokohama booth will showcase the company’s new technology development capabilities to the visitors.

The booth will feature a future technologies corner that will provide a glimpse into the many changes that are expected to shape the future automobile society as well as a corner where visitors can learn about currently applied advanced technologies through hands-on experiences.

The future technology will introduce CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared & Services) technology compatible with Yokohama technologies that are expected to see rapid application as well as environmental technologies that will help realize a sustainable society.

Three CASE-compatible technologies will be introduced—the Yokohama Intelligent Tyre Concept, a tyre IoT technology; the Self-Seal Concept Tyre, a technology that will sustain tyre rotation in self-driven, unmanned vehicles; and the Silent Foam Hook-and-Loop Fastener Concept Tyre, a tyre noise reduction technology for next-generation vehicles.

The environmental technologies to be displayed will include the Ultra Lightweight Concept Tyre, which applies a technology that significantly reduces tyre weight; a technology that enables the production of synthetic rubber from biomass; and a recyclable thermoreversible rubber.

The existing advanced technology experience corner will introduce the Matrix Body Ply used in the ADVAN Sport V105, YOKOHAMA’s global flagship tyre. Visitors will learn about the difference in rigidity of different carcass structures and feel the difference themselves by touching models at the hands-on display. The corner will also introduce visitors to Yokohama’s wet grip technology and the world’s first 344 size tyre (as of September 2019) to receive the Japan tyre-labeling system’s ultimate “a” ranking for wet grip performance. This display too will have a hands-on experience corner where visitors can compare the difference in tyres’ grip on wet surfaces.
