Feel the pressure

Tyre temperature influences the safety and reliability of the tyre. Tyre temperature and pressure monitoring systems are being developed. These include SmartTire's monitoring systems, TireChek's tyre pressure monitors and Autoware's tyre temperature analysis software. A complex, contactless and automatic external and internal tyre temperature and pressure measuring system, the CTPA system (Complex Temperature-Pressure Analyser), has been developed by the University of Alexander Dubcek. It also measures the surface temperature of the driving tyres in three points specified by the operator. Global positioning system (GPS) technology is used to measure the vehicle's speed. The CPTA system consists of three independent loops of measurement. The system was developed for a Mitsubishi Evolution, but is suitable for all cars.
