The tire pressure monitoring system or TPMS is an electronic device that is used to monitor the air pressure of your tire. When your vehicle tire is under inflation, the tire monitoring system immediately alerts the drivers so that drivers can prevent unwanted accidents.
The low air pressure in your tire can result in deteriorating the balance of your vehicle and lead to tire accidents on the road. As a result, you may get injured. This is why tire monitors are designed to suit all vehicle needs.
Types of TPMS
There are two types of tire monitoring systems as described below:
Direct tire monitors can measure the exact pressure in every tire of your vehicle because the individual sensors are fixed directly in all tires. It may have a precise value on the tire pressure and the temperature inside it to avoid over-heating. As soon as there is something unexpected, the information transmits via the computer in your vehicle.
Since direct tire monitors are different from the car’s computer, it can work with batteries or through the system of electromagnetic induction by creating electricity.
Indirect tire monitoring systems are linked to the ABS of your vehicle to examine an approximative pressure in the tires. The theory behind this system is, if your tire has a flat, its diameter will be smaller, making an increase in its speed as compared to the properly inflated tires of your vehicle. Because, it does not measure the pressure directly, but it estimates, it is called the indirect TPMS.
