The main function of This TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) is to monitor the air pressure and temperature of vehicles. It then transmits the readings to a smart system where the user can set upper and lower thresholds of the air pressure. The alarm system will deliver an audio alert or text when your tires are above or below a safe level.
TPMS will monitor the pressure based on the thresholds with its smart algorithm and will provide alerts when the thresholds are breached. TPMS can increase your safety on the road by improving your vehicle’s handling, decreasing tire wear, reducing braking distance and increase fuel economy.
There are two different types of systems being used today: Direct TPMS and Indirect TPMS.
Direct TPMS uses a sensor mounted in the wheel to measure air pressure in each tire. When air pressure drops 25% below the manufacturer’s recommended level, the sensor transmits that information to your car’s computer system and triggers your dashboard indicator light.
Indirect TPMS works with your car’s Antilock Braking System’s (ABS) wheel speed sensors. If a tire’s pressure is low, it will roll at a different wheel speed than the other tires. This information is detected by your car’s computer system, which triggers the dashboard indicator light.
IS MY VEHICLE EQUIPPED WITH A TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM?
Your vehicle has TPMS if the “low tire pressure” warning light appears on your dash when the key is turned to the “on” position.
