A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) monitors the air pressure inside the pneumatic tires on vehicles. A TPMS reports real-time tire-pressure information to the driver, using either a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light. The goal of a TPMS is avoiding traffic accidents, poor fuel economy, and increased tire wear due to under-inflated tires through early recognition of a hazardous state of the tires.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System is a comprehensive and detailed check of the health of the tires on the vehicle. Tires require constant monitoring with pressure, threading etc. playing a huge role in the life of the tire. If unchecked, this could be frequent and expensive payout for the company, bringing down vehicle efficacy. By constantly checking tire pressure, the system ensure the longevity to the tires and reduces the stoppage, thus ensuring optimum use of resources.
The portal consists of each vehicle and the feature of TPMS is turned ON if the customer has bought the same. Once the feature is turned ON, the admin can configure the vehicle with the number of tyres and add the unique ID number of each transmitter (sensor) for each tyre along with the thresholds for pressure and temperature. So once it is configured, the data can be received by the receiver which is inside the vehicle and also on the cloud for the admin to monitor. using this concept, the sensor of any tyre can be changed remotely without the need of the technician pairing the receiver and the transmitter by visiting the vehicle physically.
The sensors are fitted in tire valves connected to the ECU via RF frequency , for ease of installation and replacement if needed.
