Tyre pressure monitoring system
A tyre pressure monitoring system alerts the driver when the vehicle’s tyres are below their ideal pressure. It is generally an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside all the pneumatic tyres on automobiles and other vehicles. These systems report real time tyre pressure information to the driver of the vehicle - either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low pressure warning light. Most pressure-sensor based systems have a two-stage warning approach. The first driver notification is to show that the tyre is a little under-inflated - and so should be pumped up at the next opportunity. The second warning is more important - it is to signify that the tyre is dangerously under-inflated. Names Tyre pressure monitoring system, tyre pressure indicator and Tyre Pressure Indication System are also used for the system.
