Collaborations with US-based shared mobility providers Borrow and Envoy are providing Goodyear Tire & Rubber the opportunity to pilot its predictive digital service solutions with electric vehicle fleets. Experience gained with the two companies allows Goodyear’s Innovation Lab in San Francisco to test solutions on new models of emerging mobility.
Goodyear has started to pilot a new predictive digital service with Borrow, a short-term, fully electric car subscription company based in West Hollywood, California. Reflecting the tyre manufacturer’s increasing interest in future mobility services, Goodyear is using its predictive tyre servicing solution for connected fleets to forecast and automatically schedule needed tyre maintenance and replacement. Leveraging Goodyear’s expertise in tyres, the cloud-based platform predicts and automatically schedules tyre servicing via vehicle data and proprietary algorithms.
