MAG-TRAC / Intelligent future tire

MAG-TRAC
MAG-TRAC

Mac-trac is for future electric cars, minimizing the driver’s stress from the noise of the car and from driving. It uses the same principle as the magnetic levitation train that supports the tire without the wheel through the repulsion of the magnet, and allows forward and backward movement through the instant current of electrical signal. It also absorbs the impact on the empty space of the magnetic field and minimizes the shaking of the car frame in curvy roads. This environment-friendly tire makes absolutely no noise, thanks to the absence of a mechanically rotating part.
