New Sensor For Vehicles To Make Its Own Mark
There is yet going to be another company who would be out to make a mark in the automotive industry through one of its newest products. This company is SmarTire Systems Inc. and it would be sending out a new product that would be of great use to tire pressure monitoring systems.
According to an announcement released by SmarTire Systems Inc., they have just recently filed an application for a patent in the country. Their patent would be for the external valve sensor which can be actually used in the previously mentioned tire pressure monitoring system. Of course, such would be as essential as having the right kind and right size for your Ford Crestline parts. As per the new external valve sensor, it would also be important so much so that people and vehicle owners would be able to know just how under inflated or over inflated their vehicle’s tires actually are.
“This technological innovation further strengthens our product position and directly addresses the needs of the commercial market,” explains David Warkentin who holds the vice president position for SmarTire Systems Inc.’s sales and marketing division. He even further adds, “SmarTire’s external valve sensors will reduce the installation costs of tire pressure monitoring systems and enable faster implementation for large fleets during retrofit in the aftermarket. Although our current products are well received at the OEM level and in fleet trials, market research indicated that a percentage of the commercial vehicle market would be slower to adopt tire pressure monitoring systems without this complimentary solution.”
Indeed, such an invention would be marking its way in the automotive industry milestone. And SmarTire Systems Inc. is certainly proud to be able to mark such an invention. On behalf of the company, Warkentin does conclude, “We are pleased to be the first to introduce this technological milestone. It is the result of extensive industry collaboration and product development that builds on our existing technology. Adding this to our patent portfolio is in line with our goal to build and protect the intellectual property that forms the basis for our products. Patent production will help us maintain and extend our dominance in this market.”
As per the real purpose of the SmarTire external valve sensors, these were actually designed and crafted with the commercial vehicle industry in mind. The company does say that this new invention of theirs would actually be able to help those commercial drivers be able to make productive use of their time. And for those who are interested in this product, you would do have to wait up until the second quarter of next year for this is when they would be entering the market for sale.
