Therefore, when the phase angle sensor 122 outputs the minimum value during the rotation of the wheel 10, the phase angle P is 0 degree, the phase angle P is 90 degrees when the intermediate value is outputted, and the phase Each P is 180 degrees and 270 degrees when outputting the intermediate value again. The phase angle P can be calculated according to the continuous output value of the phase angle sensor 122. [

The signal output from the phase angle sensor 122 is transmitted to the pressure sensing controller 123 and converted from an analog signal to a digital signal.

The pressure sensing battery 121 supplies power to the pressure sensing control unit 123, the pressure sensing sensor 121, the phase angle sensor 122 and the pressure sensing transmission unit 124. Since the tire pressure sensing module 120 is not connected to the vehicle's electronic device by wire, it requires its own battery. The pressure sensing battery 121 serves as a power source of the tire pressure sensing module 120. The pressure sensing battery 121 senses its own voltage and transmits the sensed voltage value to the pressure sensing controller 123. The voltage value of the pressure sensing battery 121 is included in the tire information and transmitted to the control unit 140 so that the control unit 140 predicts the life of the pressure sensing battery 121. [

The pressure sensing transmission unit 124 wirelessly transmits the tire information to the tire information reception module 150. [ The pressure sensing transmitter 124 outputs the processed tire information as a radio frequency (RF) signal, which is processed by the pressure sensing controller 123.

The pressure sensing control unit 123 receives the pressure value and / or the temperature value of the tire 20 sensed by the pressure sensing sensor 121 and processes the tire pressure information and the tire information. The pressure sensing control unit 123 converts an analog signal corresponding to a pressure value and / or a temperature value of the tire 20 output from the pressure sensing sensor 121 into a digital signal. The pressure sensing controller 123 processes the pressure value and / or the temperature value into tire information so that the pressure sensing transmitter 124 can transmit the tire information.

The pressure sensing controller 123 stores a unique identifier. Preferably, the unique identifier is different for each tire pressure sensing module 120 and is preferably a number consisting of a combination of numbers. The pressure sensing control unit 123 processes the stored unique identifier into tire information and outputs the tire information.

The pressure sensing controller 123 calculates the phase angle P of the wheel 10 from the signal output from the phase angle sensor 122. [ The pressure sensing controller 123 converts the analog signal output from the phase angle sensor 122 into a digital signal to calculate the phase angle P of the wheel 10. [

The pressure sensing controller 123 transmits tire information through the pressure sensing transmitter 124 when the phase angle P of the wheel 10 matches the preset transmission phase angle P_set. When the phase angle P of the wheel 10 coincides with the preset transmission phase angle P_set, the pressure sensing controller 123 processes the tire information and outputs the tire information to the pressure sensing transmitter 124. The pressure sensing transmitter 124 transmits tire information output from the pressure sensing controller 123 when the phase angle P of the wheel 10 matches the preset transmission phase angle P_set.

Since the phase angle P of the wheel 10 coincides with the preset transmission phase angle P_set at intervals of 360 degrees, the pressure sensing control unit 123 transmits tire information to the pressure sensing transmitter 124 every time the wheel 10 rotates. Send via According to an exemplary embodiment, whenever the wheel 10 rotates a plurality of times, the pressure sensing controller 123 may transmit tire information through the pressure sensing transmitter 124.

The preset transmission phase angle P_set through which the tire information is transmitted may be uniquely set according to the tire pressure sensing module 120. In the present embodiment, the preset transmission phase angle P_set is 180 degrees. Therefore, when the phase angle sensor 122 outputs the maximum value, the pressure sensing control unit 123 transmits the tire information when the tire information is transmitted through the pressure sensing transmitter 124.

Referring to FIG. 4, at time t1 when the phase angle P of the wheel 10 coincides with a preset transmission phase angle P_set as time passes, the pressure sensing controller 123 may read tire information when the t1 is the pressure sensing transmitter ( 124, and at time t2 when the wheel 10 rotates once and the phase angle P coincides with the preset transmission phase angle P_set, the pressure sensing control unit 123 transmits the tire information when the t2 is the pressure sensing transmitter 124. Send via). Similarly, the pressure sensing controller 123 transmits tire information through the pressure sensing transmitter 124 at t3, t4, and t5.

The pressure sensing control unit 123 processes the tire information. The tire information includes a unique identifier stored in the pressure sensing control unit 123, a pressure value and / or a temperature value detected by the pressure sensing sensor 121, a voltage value of the battery 121, and various other information. can do.

Referring to FIG. 5, in the present embodiment, tire information is generated by processing a unique identifier, a pressure value, a voltage value, a temperature value, a number of retransmissions, and a checksum in order. According to the embodiment, the tire information may further include a vehicle type code indicating a vehicle type, a sensor mode indicating an operation mode of the sensor, sensor information indicating failure information of the sensor, and the like.

The unique identifier is a number assigned to the pressure sensing controller 123 and has a 32-bit size. The pressure value is a value of 16 bits as a value for the pressure of the tire 20 sensed by the pressure sensing sensor 121 and transmitted to the pressure sensing controller 123. The voltage value is a 16-bit value as a value for the self-voltage sensed by the pressure sensing battery 121 and transmitted to the pressure sensing controller 123. The temperature value is a value of 16 bits as a value for the temperature of the tire 20 sensed by the pressure sensing sensor 121 and transmitted to the pressure sensing controller 123.

The number of retransmissions is the number of retransmissions of tire information. The tire information receiving module 150 may not be able to receive the tire information transmitted by the pressure sensing transmission unit 124 due to various kinds of noise and other errors. Therefore, the pressure sensing control unit 123 determines that the remaining values excluding the retransmission times And repeatedly transmits the same tire information through the pressure sensing transmission unit 124. [

The number of retransmissions in the tire information is incremented by 1 every time transmission is performed. It is preferable that the tire information has a size of 8 bits. The number of retransmissions is set according to the embodiment, and in the present embodiment, the tire information is transmitted repeatedly three times. Therefore, the number of retransmissions has a value from 0 to 2. The tire information is desirably retransmitted at regular time intervals, and the retransmission interval of the tire information in this embodiment is defined as t_repeat.

The checksum is a value for checking the integrity of the data and preferably has a size of 8 bits.

According to an embodiment, the unique identifier included in the tire information, the pressure value, the voltage value, the temperature value, the number of retransmissions, and the order of the checksum may be changed, and either the pressure value or the temperature value or the voltage value may be changed. , Or the number of retransmissions, or checksum may be excluded.

6 is a flowchart illustrating a method of controlling a tire pressure sensing module according to an embodiment of the present invention.

The tire pressure sensing module 120 detects the phase angle of the wheel 10 and the pressure and / or temperature of the tire 20 (S310). The pressure sensor 121 detects the pressure and / or temperature of the tire 20, and the phase angle sensor 122 detects the phase angle of the wheel 10.

The pressure value and / or the temperature value of the tire 20 measured by the pressure sensing sensor 121 is transmitted to the pressure sensing controller 123 and converted into an analog signal from a digital signal.

The phase angle sensor 122 outputs an electrical signal according to the change of gravity. The signal output from the phase angle sensor 122 is transmitted to the pressure sensing controller 123 and converted from an analog signal to a digital signal. The pressure sensing controller 123 calculates the phase angle P of the wheel 10 from the signal output from the phase angle sensor 122. [

The tire pressure sensing module 120 determines whether the detected phase angle of the wheel 10 matches the preset phase angle (S320). The pressure sensing controller 123 calculates the phase angle P of the wheel 10 from the signal output from the phase angle sensor 122, and the transmission phase in which the phase angle P of the wheel 10 is preset. Determine if it matches each P_set.

When the phase angle P of the wheel 10 does not match the preset transmission phase angle P_set, the tire pressure sensing module 120 continuously senses the phase angle of the wheel 10 and the pressure and / or temperature of the tire 20. (S310).

When the phase angle P of the wheel 10 matches the preset transmission phase angle P_set, the tire pressure sensing module 120 transmits tire information including the pressure and / or temperature of the tire (S330). When the phase angle P of the wheel 10 coincides with the preset transmission phase angle P_set, the pressure sensing controller 123 processes the tire information and outputs the tire information to the pressure sensing transmitter 124. The pressure sensing transmitter 124 transmits tire information output from the pressure sensing controller 123 when the phase angle P of the wheel 10 matches the preset transmission phase angle P_set. In this embodiment, the tire information is generated by processing the unique identifier, the pressure value, the voltage value, the temperature value, the number of retransmissions, and the checksum in order.

It is preferable that the pressure sensing controller 123 repeatedly transmits the tire information having the same remaining values except for the number of times of retransmission through the pressure sensing transmitter 124 at regular time intervals. The pressure sensing controller 123 repeatedly transmits the tire information whose number of times of retransmission has changed by a predetermined number of times at regular time intervals.

7 is a block diagram of a control unit according to an embodiment of the present invention.

The control unit 140 according to an embodiment of the present invention includes a rotation information processor 143 which receives rotation information of each of the plurality of wheels 10 from the plurality of wheel rotation detection modules 130 and stores and processes them. The tire information processor 142 receives the tire information received by the tire information receiving module 150 and processes the tire information, a time calculator 144 for calculating a time or a time displacement, and the tire information processor 142. And a control processor 141 for automatically allocating the position of the tire pressure sensing module 120 from the processed tire information and the rotation information processed by the rotation information processor 143.

The rotation information processor 143 receives each rotation information from the plurality of wheel rotation detection modules 130. The rotation information processor 143 accumulates and stores the rotation information received from an arbitrary time point over time. The rotation information processor 143 stores the rotation information for each point of time according to the time information provided by the time calculator 144.

For example, if the rotation information of the wheel 10 recorded at an arbitrary point is 10, the wheel 10 rotates 135 degrees, and the wheel rotation detection module 130 outputs 36 pulses, The rotation information at the time when the wheel 10 is rotated by 135 degrees is recorded as 46. [ When the wheel 10 rotates one revolution, 96 pulses are generated. When the wheel 10 exceeds 96, the rotation information is initialized to 0 and accumulated. If the rotation information recorded at any time is 94 and the wheel 10 rotates 45 degrees and the wheel rotation detection module 130 outputs 12 pulses, the control unit 140 rotates the wheel 10 by 45 degrees. Record the rotation information as 10.

The tire information processor 142 calculates the transmission time of the tire information received from the tire information receiving module 150. The tire information processing unit 142 stores the tire information received from the tire information receiving module 150 together with the calculated transmission time.

The time calculator 144 may include a resonance circuit to calculate the current time from the reference time or to calculate the time displacement between different points of time. The time calculator 144 may provide time information to the rotation information processor 143 to store rotation information of each of the plurality of wheels 10 for each view point. The time computing unit 144 provides the time information to the tire information processing unit 142 so as to calculate the transmission time of the tire information.

The control processor 141 automatically allocates the position of the tire pressure sensing module 120 from the transmission time of the tire information calculated by the tire information processor 142 and the rotation information processed by the rotation information processor 143.

A detailed description of the control processing unit 141 will be described later with reference to FIGS. 8 and 9.

8 is a flowchart illustrating a control method of a control unit according to an embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 9 is a diagram illustrating rotation information of each of a plurality of wheels.

The control unit 140 receives the tire information through the tire information receiving module 150 (S410). The tire information receiving module 150 receives the transmitted tire information and transmits the received tire information to the tire information processing unit 142 of the control unit 140.

The control unit 140 calculates the transmission time of the received tire information (S420). The tire information processing unit 142 of the control unit 140 calculates the transmission time of the tire information through the reception time of the tire information and the number of retransmissions included in the tire information. The tire information processor 142 receives the time information from the time calculator 144 and grasps the reception time of the tire information.

Generally, the delay is constant when transmitting / receiving via radio. In this embodiment, when each of the plurality of tire pressure sensing modules 120 transmits tire information to the tire information receiving module 150, the delay is constant. The transmission / reception delay, which is a time interval between the time when the pressure sensing module 120 is transmitted and the time when the tire information receiving module 150 receives the signal, is set to t_delay.

Since the pressure sensing module 120 retransmits the tire information of only the number of times of retransmission at regular intervals, the initial transmission time of tire information having the same remaining value except for the number of retransmissions is calculated according to the number of retransmissions. In this embodiment, the retransmission interval of the tire information is t_repeat.

The tire information processing unit 142 calculates the transmission time of the tire information by subtracting the transmission / reception delay from the time when the tire information is received and the time interval due to the retransmission. The time interval according to the retransmission is a value obtained by multiplying the number of retransmissions by the retransmission interval. Since the tire information is retransmitted at regular intervals, the transmission / reception delay is multiplied by the number of retransmissions to calculate the transmission / reception delay based on the retransmission.

When the number of retransmissions included in the tire information is R and the time when the tire information is received is t_receive, the transmission time t_send of the tire information is calculated as follows.

Transmission time t_send = t_receive - (t_delay * R) - (t_repeat * R)

The tire information processing unit 142 stores the received tire information together with the transmission time.

The control unit 140 checks the stored tire information and calls rotation information of each of the plurality of wheels 10 with respect to the transmission time of the tire information (S430).

The control processing unit 141 confirms the transmission time of the plurality of tire information stored in the tire information processing unit 142, and rotates all the wheels 10 corresponding to the transmission time confirmed in the rotation information stored in the rotation information processing unit 143. Call up information.

For example, when the transmission time of the plurality of tire information stored in the tire information processing unit 142 is t1, t2, t3, t4, t5, respectively, rotation of all the wheels 10 at the time points t1, t2, t3, t4, t5. The information is called from the rotation information processor 143 and listed as shown in FIG.

The control unit 140 automatically allocates the tire pressure sensing module 120 from the called rotation information (S440). The control processor 141 assigns the tire pressure sensing module to the wheel 10 having the smallest deviation of the called rotation information among the plurality of wheels 10.

Since the rotation information of the wheel 10 changes according to the change in the phase angle of the wheel 10, the rotation information measured at the transmission time of the tire information in which the phase angle of the wheel 10 matches the existing phase angle is almost constant. Therefore, the control processor 141 assigns the tire pressure sensing module to the wheel 10 having the smallest deviation of the rotation information corresponding to the transmission time of the tire information.

Referring to FIG. 8, the rotation information of the FL wheel 10FL when the tire information is transmitted is [30, 35, 28, 31, 37]. The mean for this is 32.2 and the standard deviation is about 3.7, which is the smallest than the standard deviation for the rotational information of the other wheel 10.

Accordingly, the control processor 141 assigns the unique identifier included in the tire information to the FL wheel 10FL. The control processor 141 automatically assigns the tire pressure sensing module 120 that has transmitted tire information to the FL wheel 10FL.
