A TPMS helps to
improve vehicle safety, and aids drivers in
maintaining their vehicle tire pressures. Properly
maintained tires help with vehicle safety,
performance and economy.
Tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an
electronic system designed to monitor the air
pressure inside the pneumatic tires on various types
of vehicles. The system is also sometimes referred
to as a tire-pressure indication system (TPIS).
These systems report real-time tire-pressure
information to the driver of the vehicle, either via
a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple
low-pressure warning light.
