The TPMS transformation
Initially introduced in the mid-90s, TPMS was made mandatory for every new vehicle since 2014 in tune with EU regulations. The rationale behind this move is that TPMS acts as an early warning mechanism against potential tyre failure which can lead to accidents.
It is a built-in pressure sensor fitted within the wheels, generally in its valve stem. It is a battery-powered sensor which measures the tyre pressure every few seconds and sends respective signals to the OBD-II of a car.
Here’s a list of some of the advantages of TPMS.
- Saves car owners the hassle of checking their tyre pressure regularly.
- Improves road safety by preventing tyre failure and blowouts.
- Helps save fuel as underinflated tyres account for an additional 4-5% fuel consumption.
- Increases tyre life which is again affected by under-inflation.
