Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Helps prevent accidents caused by decreased tire air pressure

This system will alert drivers when critically low tire air pressure is detected.
There are two different types of sensors in this system: a direct method, in which a pressure sensor on each tire employs direct pressure, and an indirect method, in which the ABS monitors low air pressure from the sensor on each tire.

Conception of system

[Direct-sensors]

Feature : Detects absolute air pressure and uses transmitter to send data.

[Indirect-sensors]

Feature : Detects apparent air pressure and differentials between tire pressure.
