Bridgestone and Continental A.G. will join forces to develop an advanced tire-pressure monitoring system for commercial vehicles, Bridgestone/Firestone said.

The companies aim to begin mass-producing the system—which they hope will be the global standard—in 2007. The pressure-monitoring technology the tire makers will develop includes a batteryless module for installation on the inside surface of tires. The direct sensors will read air pressure and temperature and will contain a readable and writable identification tag. The companies also plan to produce peripheral technologies to allow drivers and maintenance personnel to monitor sensor readings, BFS said.

Bridgestone's and Continental's system will be on display at the Bridgestone booth at the Tokyo Motor Show in November.
