Incorrect tire pressure reduces vehicle performance, braking effectiveness, system control, and a ride comfort. Tire pressure checking framework (TPCF) is a system framework applied for checking tire pressure. This study aim at summarizing early work for the tire pressure checking framework including early different methods. Direct and indirect tire pressure checking frameworks are discussed and a comparison between both methods is summarized. A development of tire pressure checking framework is presented. Risks of the low/high tire pressures are discussed. Operating the tire at lower and/or higher pressure than the specified one can cause several severe problems. Direct TPCF uses physical sensors, however, the indirect TPCF uses velocity and vibration sensors to monitor the tire pressure. Direct TPCF framework method is more accurate than the indirect one; however, the direct showed some problems related to battery life and framework costs. The indirect needs calibration/adjustment by the drivers, and cannot realize the simultaneous loss of pressure from more than one tire in time.
