Abstract

Four wheelers are often used by most of the people in today’s life for their comfort and sophistication. Some of the vehicle accidents are taken place, due to the burst of tyre, it mainly occur because of under inflation which creates overheating during which causes loss of human life and also severe damage to the vehicle because of uncontrollable vehicle motion. To overcome the problem, this paper focuses on achieving accurate pressure in the vehicle tyre which can be attained by introducing a self-inflating system for tyre while in running condition with a low cost. This system checks the tyre pressure periodically and inflates automatically to the precisepressure. Self-inflation pressure has added advantages like increase fuel economy, reduction of distance while applying braking, improves tyre life. Approximately 3/4 of all automobiles operate with at least has one underinflated tyre. The main causes of under inflation in tyres are because of natural leakage, temperature changes, and road hazards. Maximum drivers normally didn’t check tyre pressure unless they notice unusual vehicle performance. Visual checks are often insufficient to determine under inflation. This paper will focuses to overcome the problems and suggested a proposed working model with expected results of precise pressure maintenance in the tyre.
