Project Output:

To develop a novel class of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMSs) for real-time monitoring and reporting of the internal air pressure. The proposed sensors shall derive their power from the tire’s rotation and vibration, and hence can operate autonomously without having to replace batteries.
