Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR LOCATING WHEELS OF A VEHICLE, AND TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a method and a device for locating wheels (2a–2d) of a vehicle, according to which method at least one wheel has wheel electronics (3a–3d). In accordance with the method, a signal (7) is received on the vehicle side by the wheel electronics, which signal allows conclusions to be drawn about a point in time (t0) at which the wheel (2a–2d) assumed a first rotation angle position (α). The signal consists of a plurality of packets (7a–7c). At least one time interval (dt1, dt2) between the packets is determined, and at least one estimated value for the at least one time interval is provided on the basis of the at least one determined time interval.
