Yokohama announced it will participate in the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019, to be held at Tokyo Big Sight from October 23 through November 4.
Yokohama’s booth at the event will introduce visitors to the company’s excellent technology development capabilities. 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 technologies corner will introduce the company’s technologies compatible with the CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared & Services) technology that is 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 Tire Concept, a tire IoT technology; the Self-Seal Concept Tire, a technology that will sustain tire rotation in self-driven, unmanned vehicles; and the Silent Foam Hook-and-Loop Fastener Concept Tire, a tire noise reduction technology for next-generation vehicles. The environmental technologies to be displayed will include the Ultra Lightweight Concept Tire, which applies a technology that significantly reduces tire 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 tire. This display too will have a hands-on experience corner where visitors can compare the difference in tires’ grip on wet surfaces.
Visitors can visit Yokohama’s booth at South Hall 4, S4304.
