Abstract: In India, where one in every three houses owns a two-wheeler, around 15 million two-wheelers are sold each year. Each year, the nation manufactures 20 million two-wheelers. A severely underinflated tyre may experience mechanical and thermal stress as a result of overheating, which can quickly result in the tyre blowing out. Failures of this kind may lead to risks and accidents that put everyone nearby at danger in addition to the rider. According to average country estimates, under-inflated tyres lead to tread separation and tyre failure, which result in 40,000 accidents, 33,000 injuries, and over 700 fatalities each year.

The population of India, however, may cause these numbers to increase because more individuals own 2-wheelers, have less time to personally check, and are unable to get their autos regularly inspected at a repair facility. The aforementioned problems will happen more frequently if the riders are unaware of them. The goal of this project is to develop and build a direct tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), which measures tyre pressure directly using a pressure sensor. When the TPMS notices a drop in tyre pressure, the rider does not have to exit the vehicle and manually pump air into the tyres because the TPMS and compressor unit are working together to supply the air to the tyre. The device receives power from a dynamo or a backup battery. The major components must be calibrated to guarantee consistency and accuracy in reporting the pressure and giving the tyre enough air. This prototype is a potential product for usage in the real world, despite the many difficulties and limitations.

Keywords: TPMS, compressor, Tire pressure, two-wheelers.
