According to SmarTire, the sensors offer easier installation and maintenance over existing internal sensor products.

“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,” said David Warkentin, vp-of sales & marketing.

Release of the external sensors is expected to take place sometime during the second quarter of 2007.
