Automobile tyre pressure seldom considered as important aspect in ensuring user safety, economical driving and maintenance cost reduction. The research shows that properly inflated tyres can safe tyre life up to 20% which is nine months more of its life span. It can also save fuel from 4% to 10%, increase braking efficiency up to 20%, lightens steering system and ease self steer. Therefore, Automatic Tyre Pressure Controller (ATPC) has been idealized and invented to ensure correct pressure is inflated into the tyre regardless of the setting on the pressure source: e.g. kiosk, compressor, foot inflator, etc. The device will alert the user upon reaching the appropriate pressure by a hissing sound. This product has won few medals at international invention and innovative competitions for its novelty and practicality.
