Resumen:
Un inventor rumano ha desarrollado un método para aumentar la adherencia de los neumáticos con la carretera en condiciones climatológicas desfavorables durante el invierno. El agarre del neumático conseguido con esta tecnología mejora la movilidad del vehículo, el frenado (reduciendo accidentes) y la estabilidad del vehículo en pendientes pronunciadas, curvas cerradas y a causa de vientos laterales. La tecnología utiliza aire caliente de la parte inferior del coche para garantizar una temperatura constante de los neumáticos y mantener su flexibilidad y adherencia. El inventor busca fabricantes del sector de automoción con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Road-tire adherence in the cold season optimized with novel technology
Summary:
The Romanian invention presents a method to maximise road-tire adherence during unfavorable weather conditions in the cold season.
The tire grip improved by this technology enhances (among other things): vehicle mobility, braking grip (thus reducing accidents), vehicle stability on steep gradients and/or tight bends, as well as vehicle stability when encountering side winds.
The inventor is looking to engage with automotive manufacturers through technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
This invention presents a device placed through the components of any vehicle type to optimize tires traction in the cold season. The technology applied uses some of the hot air, normally lost under the car, providing a constant temperature of the tires to keep them flexible and adherent.

The device is designed to direct hot air towards tires in order to provide greater traction of all the vehicle tires on the roads in the cold season, regardless of vehicles factory equipment, standard or optional. This invention is based on jets of hot air directed steadily and continuously to the friction area of the tires (surface that touches the road). The air jets propelled aimed to melt the snow stuck to tires and to maintain them more malleable, canceling their rigidity state given by the low external temperature, increasing tires grip to their maximum capacity. In this way is ensured optimal movement of the vehicles in adverse weather conditions (heavy snow, ice) on roads and highways.

The temperature imprinted to the tires determines:
- snow melting on tires;
- snow melting from the entire wing flaps below vehicle;
- eliminates the factor of rigidity of tires, causing increase adhesion and stability;
- eliminates vehicle drift.

The Romanian inventor is interested to find partners for technical cooperation agreement that can be achieved through technology transfer, adapting and integrating the technology into their automotive manufacturing activity.
Advantages and Innovations:
The propulsion of hot air to the tires is a technique currently unused.
The technical problem solved by this device through directing warm air to the tires, is to increase adherence of the vehicles in traffic (except for vehicles that are completely electrically powered), during the cold season, regardless of whether it is installed during production or as a seasonal adaptor for existing road vehicles, without raising fuel consumption and without polluting the environment.
.
The main advantages of the technology are:
- it provides better tire grip for vehicles in the cold season;
- it does not increase fuel consumption;
- it is adaptable to any type of car (except cars that are completely electrically powered);
- it is easily adaptable according to the vehicle model;
- it is economical in terms of manufacturing and installation costs;
- there is no noise or atmospheric pollution.
The application of this technology results in better traffic flow by reducing accidents and car skidding in the cold season.
