Syntronic China signs a cooperation agreement with a world leading sensor fusion software company within automotive

The third most common reason for car breakdowns are tire problems, often due to under inflation (puncture or slow leakage). This has created an increased implementation of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) by car manufacturers.

Syntronic in China has recently signed a long-term cooperation agreement with a world leading sensor fusion software company within automotive, where Syntronic will be responsible for implementation, integration and verification of indirect tire pressure monitoring systems (iTPMS) for local customers. A team from Syntronic’s recently opened office in Tianjin will be responsible for the projects. The team, that consists of project managers, software developers, integrators and software testing engineers, will work with data collection, test, integration and verification.

The customer’s advanced iTPMS, is a software solution which indirect determines the tire inflation pressure from the wheel speed signals. Today, you can find the solution in many vehicles from several well-known car manufacturers.

Syntronic has more than 30 years of experience in development, test, integration and verification, standardization and quality assurance processes. Our technical solutions help customers to shorten the R&D cycle, saving costs and ensure high quality products.
