  • Publication number: 20140305199
    Abstract: A system for monitoring the pressure in the tires of a plurality of wheels of a motor vehicle comprises a first sensor module that comprises at least one sensor measuring the angular velocity of at least part of the plurality of wheels of the motor vehicle. A means is provided for determining, from the angular velocity of at least part of the plurality of wheels of the motor vehicle, a signal indicative of a first value of the heading of the motor vehicle. A second sensor module generates a signal indicative of a second value of the heading of the motor vehicle, and an abnormal situation with the pressure in at least one of the tires is determined when the first value of the heading of the motor vehicle and the second value of the heading of the motor vehicle are not consistent with one another.
