'[PICLIST] [OT] Technology Lost'

I was looking throught an 1980 issue of Elektor today and they were waxing lyrical about the wonders of electronics in cars (just beginning then), one of the devices made by Bosch I think was a tyre inflation sensor device. Supposed to become standard on all cars to let you know about blow outs under pressure etc.

I can't recall this ever being fitted to a commercial car, anybody know different?

Also adverts for the latest ZX80 a massive £79.95 and 1K ram .

The Hummer vehicles can be fitted with auto-inflation/pressure
check/anti deflation devices, all controllable from the cockpit

Yes, I've seen this before. In particular, they are a must with these
new tires that can be driven flat.

Mercedes used a PIC to transmit back tire pressure in some of their
cars for a long time. I am not sure how it was sensed or how the
connections were made.

I think it was killed by a simple valve stem pressure indicator that was
available & cheap. I wonder why that one is no longer available? Liability,
perhaps?

A friend of mine made some tire stem inserts for commercial trucks that
measured the pressure and radioed it back to a central computer.  Pretty
slick for something that fits in a tire stem and then whirls around at 70MPH
on a slushy snow covered road.  Don't think he's selling them commercially,
though, just for one customer.
