Sensata BLE Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Aug. 23, 2022

The Sensata Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is designed for vehicle OEMs to help improve vehicle safety and performance.

Interest in BLE TPMS is on the rise as vehicles become more connected, electrified, and autonomous, the company says. While common in consumer applications like speakers and headphones, BLE is relatively new in the TPMS space for vehicle OEMs and is enabled by newer vehicle system architectures that can support BLE functionality. The system 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.
