  • Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems continuously mea- sure air pressure inside all tires of passenger cars, trucks, and multipurpose passenger vehicles, and alert drivers if any tire is signicantly underinated. While both direct and indirect measurement technologies exist, only direct measurement has the measurement sensitivity required by the TREAD Act and is thus the only one in produc- tion.
