Research Institution
IOS and the University of Arkansas propose to design a novel and compact platform consisting of Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) devices designed to 1) automatically sense and control tire pressure, 2) generate and store power from tire vibration, 3) telemeter data to the driver cabin or road side service analyzers, and 4) be installed by the factory on new cars or retrofitted onto existing cars without disrupting vehicle aesthetics
