Air Maintenance Technology


October 24, 2014 - Products


Goodyear has been developing and testing its Air Maintenance Technology since 2011, and announced it will be testing the technology on trucking fleets over the next year and a half.

The system automatically keeps tires inflated to a specified cold inflation pressure with internal pumps and sensors. The AMT system is designed to work under many operating conditions and through multiple retreads.

The system uses a peristaltic pump technology to automatically maintain tire pressures specified by the fleet. All components of the AMT system are contained within the tire.

Properly inflated tires result in lower emissions, longer tire life, improved safety, and better performance.

The Department of Energy’s Office of Vehicle Technology gave a $1.5 million grant to assist in the research and development of AMT. Representatives from the DOE met with Goodyear’s AMT teams in September to review the progress on the project.
