ERJ staff report (DS)
Wueschheim, Germany -- TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. has developed its next generation tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) - a hybrid system which uses a combination of sensing technologies to identify which tyre is at reduced pressure, or elevated remperature.
The system uses basic, wheel-mounted direct TPMS sensors to measure the pressure and temperature of the air inside a tyre, but this has reduced identification functionality. This is found through data from a vehicle's ABS or ESC wheel speed sensors.
TRW anticipates that its hybrid TPMS will be ready for production in 2013.
