TRW has unveiled a new type of TPMS technology: Integrated Remote Keyless Entry paired with a Direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
How does this pairing work and what makes it so efficient? Commands from the Remote Keyless Entry along with temperature and pressure information sent from TPMS sensors in each individual tire are received by a single receiver/electronic control unit. The ECU then decodes the transmitted data to activate the lock/unlock function of the vehicle as well as provide tire pressure information to the driver.
