Direct Tyre Pressure Monitoring System From TRW
TRW is introducing its second generation direct Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for a major Japanese vehicle manufacturer on a 2004 model year application.TRW, in c-operation with Michelin, has developed the “EnTire Solution,” an advanced direct TPMS. The system delivers accurate readouts and has the ability to indicate what tire is under-inflated, front or rear, left or right, and offers other major benefits to the driver. Using predictive algorithms, the driver can be warned that there will be a low-pressure tire problem in the near future. This alerts the driver to take action before getting on a long stretch of motorway.
False alarms are another concern that can cause a true low-pressure warning to be ignored even by the most conscientious driver. TRW Automotive and Michelin have incorporated such advanced monitoring algorithms into the EnTire Solution TPMS that detect slow leaks, yet also account for driver habits and environmental conditions to reduce the occurrence of false warnings.
