Tire Pressure Monitoring System and electronic-Tire Information System
Since 2002 we have been supplying electronic systems for automatic monitoring of tire pressure to carmakers. Today over 20 car manufacturers worldwide use our systems. In this way we make a major contribution to improving driving safety, ride comfort and environment protection.
The pressure inside the tire is measured, transmitted and indicated. In critical situations, a signal on the center console's instrument cluster, for instance, gives the driver timely warning of a drop in tire inflation pressure or a higher tire temperature. The driver can then stop the vehicle in time before a dangerous situation arises.
Properly inflated tires not only enhance driving safety, they also reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This is because underinflated tires have higher rolling resistance, which in turn increases fuel consumption.
