Improper tyre pressure is a safety issue that is usually not taken seriously. In addition to causing accidents, under-inflated tyres can cause a reduction in mileage, tyre life, and performance. Over-inflated tyres also have a negative impact on the safety of the vehicle. In this paper, we are presenting the idea of using a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System in combination with an Android phone. Notifications and indications in the form of color changes are implemented to communicate proper warnings about under or over inflation of the tyres via Serial Port Bluetooth Profile (SPP).
