Title: WHEEL UNIT, SYSTEM FOR TRANSMITTING DATA FROM A WHEEL UNIT, AND METHOD FOR TRANSMITTING DATA FROM A WHEEL UNIT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a wheel unit (10-1 to 10-4) for a system for transmitting data from the wheel unit (10-1 to 10-4) to a receiver (32) of a vehicle (1), wherein the wheel unit (10-1 to 10-4) is designed to be mounted to a wheel (W1 to W4) of the vehicle (1), and wherein the wheel unit (10-1 to 10-4) comprises: a storage (18) for storing wheel type data related to the type of the wheel (W1 to W4) at which the wheel unit (10-1 to 10-4) is mounted; a processor (16) for processing the wheel type data stored in the storage (18); a transmitter (20) for RF-transmitting data telegrams to a vehicle-mounted receiver (32). The processor (16) is designed to determine an RF power value based on the stored wheel type data, and the transmitter (20) is designed to transmit the data telegrams with an RF power based on the determined RF power value.
