Continental’s research and development of tires

Hannover, Germany – Continental’s Dr. Hagan Schoenfield, research and development of tires, talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, www.drivingthenation.com about the technologies of the future.

So much has been made of electrification and automated driving, but the one constant for the future is that, so far, we still need four tires on the ground to move a car.

Which is more important, the compounds in the tire, or the pattern on the tire?

What does Continental’s Dr. Hagen Schoenfeld do to ensure they are getting consistency in their tire testing?
