DriveRight are able to provide technical data to the same level of detail as they have in all their other global databases with the support of a strong technical team.
- Brake Caliper information
- Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems
Brake Caliper information (CAD etc.)
DriveRight’s vehicle TPMS data also contains brake profile data, which is delivered at chassis level in 2D DXF, DWG file formats, with OEM spec data. This is a standalone service and can be purchased as a one off, block or by monthly subscription. This means that application lists can be generated or cross checked against both existing wheels or volume profiles for new designs can be generated so enhancing the design process against current and historic car parc vehicles.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems
A database of original equipment TPMS systems, including frequency and reset location. Analysis of aftermarket vehicle TPMS systems to test, via CAD analysis, suitability for original equipment replacement and aftermarket wheel applications.
Access to the data can be through DriveRight’s standard API webservice methods which can be integrated into your systems or via access to the TPMS 1.0 online tool. Operating the TPMS tool is simple and has a user friendly search engine. Selecting a vehicle via drop-down menus will return the relating TPMS information on all associated sensors, including information on available indirect systems.
Along with vehicle TPMS data, DriveRight’s technical team also offers analysis of aftermarket TPMS systems suitability for original equipment replacement and aftermarket wheel applications via CAD analysis.
Direct TPMS / Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems Data
Direct TPMS data gathers accurate pressure data directly from the tyre valve, using four dedicated sensors. This gives close to real time reports of pressure information, also measuring temperature and sending this precise data to a central receiver via radio.
Other functions include tyre position detection, spare wheel monitoring and, when stationary, measurement of pressure loss. This direct method requires all tyres to be equipped with a functional sensor, including spares and winter/summer tyres.
Indirect TPMS / Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems Data
Indirect TPMS data approximates tyre pressure using the ABS system. Before an alert is generated, the vehicle must be driven quite a distance due to an absence of pressure sensors. An indirect system will not trigger a warning alarm if, due to reasons such as neglect, pressure is similarly low in all four tyres.
A requirement of indirect technology is that, in order to operate properly with the system, specific tyres must be installed when replacing the originals. To work effectively, each tyre must be correctly inflated and under optimum conditions. The driver also needs to recalibrate their device after a tyre has been changed or they have modified the pressure.
