Abstract

In 2005 the Department of Transportation made it mandatory for all new cars to be installed with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The TPMS system typically consists of transmitters in the tires and a receiver within the car. This project was the first in a series of projects designed to investigate the security vulnerabilities between a tire pressure monitoring sensor and the receiver within the car. Through controlled, distance, and roadside testing a generic receiver was designed using the universal software defined radio (USRP) and MATLAB for all TPMS variants.
