Depending upon the display choice, the Sosaley Tyre Pressure Monitoring System will consist of several components:
- Multiple battery powered sensor modules mounted on each wheel. This module senses the air pressure and temperature of each wheel and sends that data to the main module through RF communication.
- One main unit that receives the data, processes the data and forwards the data to the driver or others.
- An optional TFT display and control unit that displays the data through a pre-defined UI. It will also deliver visual and auditory warnings when needed. The control unit can be used to define the operational parameters of the Sosaley TPMS.
The communication between the main unit and all other units will be as per the ‘tyre’ message in SAE J1929 CAN protocol. Appropriate application and translators will be defined as APIs at the other ends of the communication. This makes it easy to configure the Sosaley TPMS as per customer’s choice.
Sosaley Tyre Pressure Monitoring System Main Unit
The main unit will be based on the Sosaley Master Controller that already has been tested and proven for both sensor interface as well as communication protocols. The main unit of Sosaley TPMS will be minimum four layered and of the smallest size possible. It also has to be housed in an enclosure such as IP5K2 for protection against dust and water.
The data that comes from Sosaley TPMS includes tyre air pressure and temperature. This data can be used for analytics such as tyre performance, load distribution, tyre mileage, etc. The system comes with a data export facility. Each line of data will be date and time stamped and exported as a delimited file.
The Sosaley Tyre Pressure Monitoring System will follow international standards defined by ISO and SAE. The standards will be implemented across design, coding, hardware, testing and packaging.
