Goodyear, Siemens adapt TPMS to truck tires
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and Siemens VDO Automotive AG have adapted their Tire IQ tire pressure monitoring system for use on truck tires, including super singles.
Goodyear and Siemens originally engineered the Tire IQ system for use in passenger cars.
In truck tires, the system´s sensor is permanently linked to a 360-degree antenna that maintains contact with a receiver.
"The driver receives a specific warning of which tire needs air," say Siemens officials.
The sensor also measures tire temperature.
