TPMS IP

Current TPMS Technologies

Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) have been deployed for years since the Federal mandate.  The initial anticipated vendor dilemma for the incumbent RF TPMS technology, manufacturing cost, has come down significantly over the years primarily due to the market volume.

Unfortunately, there are many unanticipated or underestimated issues that at best, have not appreciably improved, and at worst are associated with the incumbent technologies.  As such, in retrospect, the incumbent TPMS technologies have failed to address both government and market expectations, which aside profitability represents a small but finite increase of highway accidents and possible fatalities.

Incumbent TPMS issues:

Reliability (Impact of low MTBF)
    • Safety
    • Liability
    • Cost of Ownership
Accuracy (Impact of false alarms)
    • Unnecessary consumer concern
    • Significant losses in frivolous warranty servicing
Profitability (Impact of mfg. cost vs. price cap)
    • Basic TPMS installations incur a net loss
Ecology (Impact of active TPMS modules)
    • Wasted power
    • Heavy metal pollution

The ATPS Solution

 The ATPS system has none of these issues.

 

The ATPS system has an unlimited life and has no replacement costs.  By eliminating the batteries in each tire this also reduces the cost per unit.

 

The RF pickup box is also eliminated in the ATPS system and further reduces  cost. There is no need to recalibrate as the pick up position is fixed in the vehicle.

 

In Summary the ATPS system solves the issues of:
    • Cost 
    • Reliability
    • Recalibration
    • Replacement cost due to battery failure.
