Tire Pressure solutions using passive RFID technologyMarcus TaylorSilent Sensors Ltd
Making you cleaner, safer & saving you money!
Adding value to TPMS and lowering TCOTPMS/RTPM solutions exist but withtechnical and commercial challengesSilentSensors’ solution is precise, low cost,uses proven RFID & requires no maintenance• Average error ≈ 1psi (cars) & 2psi (trucks)• Texas Instruments guaranteed performance• Rugged - wide temperature operating range• No batteries, whole replacement units orwheel or tire removals• Less than £1 and 10g per tire• Typically half or less than competing solutions• Products for existing (retrofit) & new markets• Existing market solution – easy retrofit cap• New market solutions (built-in stem or patch)• Patented for ≈ 75% of global market• Inaccurate range of readings• Wide margin of error• Complicated maintenance typicallyrequiring wheel or tire removal• Expensive (typically ≈ £50 a wheel)• On-going battery requirements• Typically confined to new vehicle market• Limited retrofit potential
