Title: METHOD FOR DETECTING THE REMOVAL OF A TIRE MODULE INSTALLED IN A VEHICLE TIRE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for detecting the removal of a tire-monitoring module for monitoring tire pressure, which tire-monitoring module is installed in a vehicle tire and has a force sensor and can contain tire-specific data and transmit said data and information about the tire pressure to an electronic computing unit provided in the vehicle, wherein an appreciable pressure drop in the tire is regarded as an indication of a possible removal of the tire module, wherein subsequently to an appreciable pressure drop, the signals of the force sensor are monitored with regard to periodicity and, if periodicity cannot be detected, a removal of the tire module is inferred and the tire-specific data are no longer made available.
