The Aptera Forum
This could improve range by reducing rolling resistance of the front wheels. It should be especially effective on the Aptera as rolling resistance is a greater proportion compared to air drag than any other car.
Wow, intriguing technology if it is robust and reliable.
"This system has been extensively developed and tested, and provides at least: 15% increase in handling performance; 10% reduction in rolling resistance; and 10% reduction in peak tyre temperatures. With support from AMGC, Doftek is now working on the second version of its system, which will offer next-generation dynamic (semi-active) and adaptive (real- time) capabilities. This system will also achieve an improvement of up-to 29% in handling performance observed during initial testing with differential camber settings."
Their baseline must be a 1980's corolla that's been in several accidents. I can see huge applications in racing technology and the hypercar market if they can achieve real time control. Very cool idea. As a low hanging fruit maybe aptera can identify a wheel alignment issue via its sensor suite. Maybe rolling resistance normalised for tyre pressure and bearing noise.
