Siemens VDO Brings Piezo TPMS Technology to IAA

20th September 2007 | 0 Comments

While many attended the IAA in Frankfurt to admire the crisp styling of the latest vehicle models and concept cars, for others the technology lying beneath the skin of a car is every bit as beautiful. To satisfy the cravings of these technophiles, a number of companies chose the motor show as a venue for showing off tomorrow’s standard features.

Amongst these was Siemens VDO, who brought its next generation, battery free piezo element tyre pressure monitoring system to Frankfurt. Integrating the sensor, communications system, identification electronics and processing in a single module located directly in the tyre, the Intelligent Tire System (ITS) automatically detects tyre data and transfers the data to the system controls. When necessary, the driver receives critical tyre information, such as the tyre pressure and the vehicle’s load status. To support the optimised functioning of these systems, important tyre status information also can be transmitted to other electronic vehicle systems, such as the braking assistant, stability control, or the drive control system.
