The Philips Tire Pressure Monitor System is a real-time monitoring system for drivers to safely assess car tire pressure and temperature.
Tread separation and tire failure due to under-inflation result in 40,000 accidents, 33,000 injuries and over 650 deaths per year in the US.
Properly inflated tires, however, add greater stability, handling and braking efficiencies and provide greater safety for the driver, the vehicle, cargo and others on the road. The Philips Tire Pressure Monitor System uses information from sensors in/on the tires to assess pressure and temperature in real-time. Data is relayed to drivers via a display device or smartphone, resulting in greater control over vehicles.
