Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems and the Automotive Assembly Process 2002-01-1308

This paper describes the various impacts, both positive and negative, of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). Comparisons are made of wheel speed based TPMS and pressure sensor based TPMS. Furthermore, the assembly process for pressure sensor based TPMS in the automotive production facility is outlined and critiqued, with various steps to the process evaluated. Examples include potential improvements in controlling the process of filling the tire with compressed air and early detection of slow leaks.
