  • Patent number: 10046608
    Abstract: A method for localizing the installation position of wheels in a motor vehicle having at least a first, second and third wheels, includes allocating respective wheel electronics to the wheels for emitting a radio signal with an identifier and allocating at least one vehicle-side rotational angle sensor to at least a first possible installation position. The installation position of the first wheel is determined by output signals of the rotational angle sensor at a first possible installation position. In addition, the installation position of the second and third wheels is determined by measuring the field strength of radio signals with identifiers of the wheel electronics of the second and third wheels by using a vehicle-side receiving device. In this way, precise determination of the location of the wheel electronics can be performed with minimum expenditure on devices, without having to provide a rotational angle sensor on each wheel.
