My opinion - it is better to perform monitoring tire height then its' pressure. The height of loaded tire must be about 10% lower. Let's remove thinking stereo-tips!

Correction....mean to say TPMS system that lasts 7 to 8 years with a coin-cell would be more ideal as it lasts till a tire gets replaced.

True, today the cost of energy harvesting systems is a bit on the higher side. Considering the life-time of a tire is 7 to 8 years, a battery-powered (coin-cell) TPMS unit that can last for the life-time of a battery, would be cost-effective.

This would seem to be a good application for energy harvesting so that the battery could be removed from the system. Would that work? Any major issues?
