The 2006 Michelin Challenge Design (www.michelinchallengedesign.com) features California as the geographic focus for the design forum. Designers must combine vehicle aesthetics with vehicle technology, and must also incorporate an alternative power train, consider the effect of that power train on tire size and appearance, and define the role that electronic transducers embedded in the tire could play in the tire/vehicle system. Submissions will be accepted until April 15. Selected works will be displayed at the North American International Auto Show.
