TPMS

Nuisance or safety standard? Everything about tyre pressure monitoring systems

TPMS - Two systems, same task

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)
… control the status of tyre pressure on a car automatically. Not only do these systems improve your driving safety by reducing the chances of accidents caused by tyre pressure losses, but their use might also reflect on fuel mileage as well. Since a pressure loss can be detected much more promptly, the tyres can be serviced accordingly to have them always working at the proper pressure. This means an optimised fuel consumption, which is obviously good for your wallet but most importantly for the environment. Tyre pressure monitoring systems are generally divided into two categories, which are respectively known as direct (active) and indirect (passive) depending on their mode of operation.
