Wireless tyre pressure measurement

Received Date:23 December 2020, Accepted Date:03 March 2021, Published Date:30 March 2021


Objectives: To create a low-powered, smaller-size vehicle tyre pressure and temperature measuring unit and tracking of sensor values using ESP8266 as a core component in a mobile app. Methods: The IoT technique is applied remotely to measure the tyre pressure and temperature sensor. With the aid of Firebase, the mobile app tracks and displays the input signals from the tyre pressure and temperature sensor continuously. This study includes the NodeMCU, MLX90614 temperature sensor and SPD030G pressure sensor to incorporate a direct tyre pressure monitoring system. Findings: The setup is in charge of continuously controlling the tyre’s pressure and temperature. This will be shown via Firebase on the mobile app. Much like MQTT, the mobile app is linked to firebase. Novelty/Applications: The proposed setup is a wireless MQTT-based device designed to transmit data to the Smartphone (Mobile) app, enabling tyre wellbeing to be controlled from anywhere in the globe. It is possible to monitor the pressure and temperature of the tyre wirelessly. No need to use a separate sensor reading controller for wireless communication due to the use of ESP8266. This can be seen in air conditioning devices, BP/health control, and handheld pressure sensors.
