Today’s invention is a supplementary form of drive and braking for a motor vehicle.

It consists of one or more autonomous vehicles operating inside the tyres.

These vehicles would be inductively powered, via the wheel hubs, and would have sprung rollers, above and below, to ensure good contact with both the wheel surface and the tyre inner surface.

These motors would talk to each other, as well as the suspension, to coordinate cornering and road holding. The tyre stiffness could be augmented, for example, by stiffening the springs of the in-tyre vehicle during a journey.
