    DYNAMICALLY AUGMENTING WHEEL SYSTEM

    DAWS is a great idea on paper to replace the conventional tyre.But in real world it maybe not practical.

    Read on “Dynamically Augmenting Wheel System: Neat-Looking, But Terrible Idea” from Jalopnik below:-

    The Dynamically Augmenting Wheel System (DAWS) is a segmented wheel which shifts shape to battle cornering forces. It seems like a great idea on paper. Too bad everything about it’s a bad idea in reality.

    Just because an idea can be modeled in 3D does it mean it will work in the real world. DAWS is one of those ideas. There are many things which are technically difficult to begin with, but there are two we’ll point out which are engineering non-starters.

    First, we realize this isn’t absolutely central to the concept, but the suspension would topple the car before the fancy wheel would even have a chance to transform.

    They’ve mistakenly designed control arms which place the roll center outside the car. Turn hard into a corner and the mass of the car acting on the control arms will turn the wheels on their edges.
