A smart new gizmo that monitors the pressure in your car tyres has sparked interest at The Gadget Show Live 2009.
The gadget Tyresure is a system for wirelessly (via Radio) monitoring the pressure on each of the tyres for vehicles including cars, bike and vans.
It is billed as saving fuel, tyre wear and ultimately, lives.
The system works by having a sensor and transmitter placed inside of each wheel – and then a receiver inside the vehicle – either permanently attached, or turned on when needed.
The logic is sound, since tyres being wrongly inflated means exta wear, more fuel, and also more accidents.
As Tyresure say: ‘The T.P.M.S system constantly monitors tyre pressure and temperature.
The system alerts the driver when tyre pressure or tyre temperatures are abnormal. It is totally wireless and CE Certified.’
In the USA the T.P.M.S was required to be fitted by law on new vehicles from September 2007 and many European vehicles already have this system installed.
