An automotive tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure of tires on vehicles. The TPMS provides real-time information about tire pressure to the driver, allowing them to take appropriate action if the pressure drops below safe levels.
TPMS systems typically consist of a pressure sensor, a wireless transmitter, and a receiver. The pressure sensor is attached to the valve stem of each tire and measures the pressure inside the tire. The wireless transmitter sends this information to the receiver, which is located at the vehicle’s dashboard. The receiver processes the information and displays the tire pressure readings to the driver.
Real-time TPMS monitoring is vital for heavy commercial vehicle management, especially for trucks working in industries with big, heavy, and multiple connected cargos. In these cases, tire monitoring allows for saving costs on fuel reduction and even lower CO2 emissions. These aspects are essential in the fast-growing market, such as Australian logistics, cargo transportation, raw materials transportation, on-road bulk haulage, and more.
