The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has collaborated with Plus (formerly Plus.ai) to provide optimized, autonomous trucking solutions.

Through this collaboration, Goodyear's suite of services, including connected tires, will further enhance transportation efficiency and safety for semi-trucks powered by Plus's Level 4 autonomous driving technology.

Goodyear and Plus will explore how Plus's autonomous driving system can incorporate feedback from Goodyear's connected tires into Plus's online, machine learning-based fuel economy efficiency, to further improve fuel economy.  

Integrating Goodyear's intelligent tires with Plus's autonomous driving system can also improve a vehicle's overall performance in severe weather and extreme road conditions. Plus is already deploying its driver-in autonomous driving solution to customers and is expected to start production of the FAW J7 L3 truck (First Automobile Works) powered by PlusDrive in the third quarter of 2021.
