FRED TALKS The TPMS Sensor Evolution: Uncovering the Historic Bosch Bell and New Sensor Innovations


Join Fred Padgett and Brian Smith from Bosch Automotive Aftermarket in the latest edition of Fred Talks as they uncover an enlightening piece of Bosch history — the Bosch Bell. Discover how this innovative creation coincidentally served as the precursor to our NEW Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Sensors – and explore the unique features of each solution, supporting markets decades apart.

In the early 1920s, when car ownership soared, tires were a high-priced commodity due to a shortage of rubber. In response, Bosch introduced the game-changing Bosch Bell that offered a cost-effective alternative to replacing rubber in tires – saving drivers significant expense.

In this episode, we connect the dots between the historic Bosch Bell and our new universal TPMS sensors. Learn how Bosch continually delivers on its commitment to innovation by consistently providing practical, safe solutions for motorists – spanning multiple generations.
