Remember Starship’s delivery robots? We have covered plenty of them in the past making deliveries in various locations. These robots are now going to have airless tires. Goodyear developed a special set of airless tires to extend life and reduce maintenance.
As the company explains:
Our delivery robots make thousands of deliveries every day in all types of weather conditions and terrain. To make sure we can keep up with the growing demand for our services, we need tires that are reliable and keep our robots on the move around the clock and around the globe.
explains Siim Viilup, mechanical engineering manager, Starship Technologies. This video shows these non-pneumatic tires in action.
