Sensata Technologies develops Bluetooth Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Sensata Technologies announced it has developed a new Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for vehicle OEMs. Sensata’s new BLE TPMS leverages its tire pressure monitoring sensors by replacing the ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio with BLE radio to enable two-way communication. These new BLE TPMS solutions are available in both clamp-in and snap-in configurations, are optimized for long battery life, and deliver the same pressure, temperature and auto-location capabilities as Sensata’s existing UHF TPMS solutions.

The technology can enhance advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and augment remote diagnostics support, Sensata Technologies noted in a press release. With over-the-air updates, drivers can download new tire-related features and software updates, enhancing their driving experience and avoiding a trip to the shop for service. BLE two-way communication also enables cyber security authentication, which is not possible with traditional one-way UHF, and adds a layer of protection from being hacked.
