Geely launches self-developed driving safety system

September 19, 2008

Shanghai, September 19 ( Privately-owned Chinese carmaker Zhejiang Geely Holdings Group has launched its self-developed driving safety technology, namely the blowout monitoring and braking system (BMBS), which can rival and even replace the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) of the United States, reported today.

The BMBS combines the machinery, computing, electronic control and hydraulic control, and can monitor tire pressure on a real-time basis, alert drivers of the changes, and brake the vehicle proactively, thus ensuring driving safety in the event of a tire blowout. The technology has been put to the test for many times and has been proven of great significance to the automobile industry.

Compared with the widely used U.S. standard TPMS, which is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside all the pneumatic tires on a motor vehicle, Geely's BMBS system features the proactive intelligent technology for the system to apply the brake automatically 3-5 "life and death" seconds before the driver responds to the tire blowup, thus minimizing possible blowout-caused risks.

In addition to all functions of TPMS and ABS (anti-lock brake system) it can perform, Geely's BMBS uses real-time monitoring of tire pressure and begins braking to allow the vehicle to continue in the direction the driver is trying to steer while gradually reducing speed. The technology has been mounted on police vehicles and fleet vehicles in China.
