Webinar: Considerations for Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems and Tire Sensor Testing

As vehicle and tire manufacturers look to add new tracking technology into the tire itself, testing requirements will continue to evolve. From TPMS to RFID sensors to tread depth sensors and beyond, the tire is becoming a data source that will help to drive ADAS and autonomous vehicle technologies for years to come.

SensorsTire pressure monitoring system  need to function properly for well-defined product lifecycles and withstand the harsh environment that tires commonly experience on the road. This 45-minute webinar discusses the various considerations for testing of both the component and full tire assembly.

  • Review of various sensors within the tire
  • Common conditions experienced in operation
  • Overview of common TPMS testing standards
  • Evaluating sensor performance in whole tire testing
  • Developing the most effective testing program
