What is TPMS?

1 minuteread


A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic system designed to watch the gas pressure inside the pneumatic tires on various kinds of vehicles. A TPMS reports real-time tire-pressure information to the driving force of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a straightforward low-pressure visual signal. TPMS will be divided into two differing types – direct (dTPMS) and indirect (PMS). TPMS are provided both at an o.e.m (factory) level yet as an aftermarket solution.

The goal of a TPMS is avoiding traffic accidents, poor fuel economy, and increased tire wear thanks to under-inflated tires through early recognition of a hazardous state of the tires. This functionality first appeared in luxury vehicles in Europe within the 1980s, while mass-market adoption followed the USA passing the 2000 TREAD Act after the Firestone and Ford tire controversy. Mandates for TPMS technology in new cars have continued to proliferate within the 21st century in Russia, the EU, Japan, the Asian nation, and plenty of other Asian countries. As of November 2014, the fitment rate stands at 54% of passenger cars.
