Abstract

Describes the progress made to date in testing and developing a system to monitor the environment within a commercial vehicle’s tyre ‐ its temperature and pressure ‐ by means of a radio link to a single central receiver inside the vehicle. Discusses the economic and safety implications of maintaining the correct pressure in vehicle tyres and reports that reactions from commercial vehicle suppliers have been positive.
