Each tire pressure sensor 20 is connected wirelessly with control 18 by a wireless communication link 22 that, in the illustrated embodiment, is a radio frequency RF link. Tire pressure sensor 20 is commercially available from several sources and conventionally includes a wireless communication link 22 with a vehicle controller. Control 18 is an electronic control, and is preferably a microprocessor-based electronic control, but may, alternatively, be a digital logic controller, an analog controller, or the like.
Preferably, control 18 performs additional vehicle functions. Most preferably, control 18 is interconnected with a vehicle serial bus system such as of the type disclosed in commonly assigned U. Exterior rearview mirror assembly 14 includes a reflective element 24 and a support 26 supporting the reflective element by vehicle 12 FIGS. As is conventional, support 26 includes a fixed portion 28 attached to vehicle 12 and a movable portion not shown which movably supports reflective element Preferably, the movable portion is an electrically controlled actuator of the type disclosed in commonly assigned patent application Ser.
Reflective element 24 may be any of several reflectors such as glass coated on its first or second surface with a suitable reflective layer or layers, such as disclosed in U. However, the invention applies to all forms of reflective element Electrochromic reflective elements 24 may be of any type such as disclosed in U.
Electrochromic reflective elements 24 include electrochromic units, or cells, that decrease in transmissivity in response to a drive signal applied thereto. Most preferably, reflective element 24 comprises a front substrate and a rear substrate with an electrochromic medium disposed between, such as a solid polymer matrix electrochromic medium such as is disclosed in U.
Most preferably, the front substrate comprises a glass plate of thickness less than about 1. The rearmost surface of the rear substrate the fourth surface as known in the mirror art is reflector coated with a high reflecting metal film such as of aluminum or silver, or an alloy of aluminum or silver. Most preferably, the frontmost surface of the rear substrate the third surface as known in the mirror art is reflector coated with a high reflecting metal film such as of aluminum or silver, or an alloy of aluminum or silver, optionally overcoated with a transparent electronic conductor coating such as of indium tin oxide or of doped tin oxide.
Exterior rearview mirror assembly 14 may include other elements and functions as disclosed in commonly assigned U. Tire inflation indicator assembly 19 preferably generates a pattern of light P viewable from the location of the tires of the vehicle on the side of the vehicle with which tire pressure sensors 20 are associated. In this manner, a user of the vehicle or an attendant or mechanic may inflate the vehicle tires while observing the pattern of light P generated by the tire pressure indicator assembly This may be accomplished by mounting tire inflation indicator assembly 19 to a lower surface 30 of the portion of exterior rearview mirror assembly 14 that houses the mirror reflector.
In addition to producing a pattern of light P, which is visible at the tires on the side of the vehicle with which the associated tire inflation indicator assembly 19 is located, the pattern of light P preferably will not be substantially visible to the driver of the vehicle. This avoids any distraction to the driver from the tire inflation indicator assembly while the driver is in the vehicle.
Furthermore, there is less wind noise below the exterior rearview mirror assembly Thus, the presence of the tire pressure indicator assembly there does not substantially contribute to wind noise generated by the exterior rearview mirror assembly. Furthermore, the bottom portion of exterior rearview mirror assembly 14 is typically hollow and provides a convenient attachment point for the tire inflation indicator assembly.
Because the exterior mirror assembly protrudes outwardly from the vehicle body, locating the tire inflation indicator assembly at the exterior mirror assembly, and especially at a lower portion of the part of the exterior mirror assembly that houses the mirror reflector element, is advantageous.

For example, a tire inflation indicator assembly that includes a light source, such as a light-emitting diode, can protrude from the underside of the casing part of the exterior mirror assembly that houses the mirror reflector element. Thus, whether the user adjusting tire pressure is located at a front wheel tire or a rear wheel tire at one of the driver side or the passenger side of the vehicle, the user can see a single indicator of the tire inflation indicator assembly that is positioned below the casing of the exterior mirror assembly on that side, and that preferably protrudes therefrom for example, as a pendant elementas he or she crouches down at that particular wheel tire on that particular vehicle side.
It is preferable, for economy, that a single tire inflation indicator assembly be provided on an exterior vehicle portion of a side of the vehicle at a location visible to a person inflating either a front wheel tire of that side or a rear wheel tire of that side. In an alternative embodiment, a tire inflation indicator assembly 19 a may be positioned at fixed portion 28 of support In the embodiment illustrated in FIG. Another tire inflation indicator assembly not shown may be positioned on a forward-facing portion of fixed portion 28, thereby being visible at the area around the forward tire on the same side of the vehicle on which the tire inflation assembly is located.
In another alternative embodiment illustrated in FIG. Preferably, tire inflation indicator assembly 19 b is positioned behind reflective element 24, thereby protected from environmental elements such as road splash, car washes, and the like. This is accomplished by removing a portion of a reflective coating on reflective element 24 such that tire inflation indicator assembly 19 b is viewable through reflective element 24 or by using a semitransparent mirror reflector such a dichroic mirror element such as is described in U.
Tire inflation indicator assembly 19 b may be joined with reflective element 24 according to the principles disclosed in U. Other mountings for tire inflation indicator assembly, according to the invention, may be apparent to the skilled artisan.
For example, the tire inflation indicator assembly may be mounted at the sail portion 30 of exterior rearview member assembly 14 or a portion of vehicle 12 adjacent to exterior rearview mirror assembly Also, the tire inflation indicator assembly can be located at an exterior vehicle portion other than at the exterior mirror assembly.
For example, a tire inflation indicator assembly can be located at a vehicle body side panel, such as at or part of a side marker assembly, or as part of a door panel assembly. Other elements may be combined with the tire inflation indicator assembly.
For example, a temperature sensor for sensing the exterior temperature surrounding the vehicle may be positioned in a common housing with the tire inflation indicator assembly. Tire inflation indicator system 16 optionally comprises a lockout 33 that prevents inadvertent actuation of tire inflation indicator assemblies 19 during operation of vehicle Such lockouts are conventional and preferably comprise a circuit that is responsive to the vehicle being placed in gear to the vehicle reaching a determined speed such as at least 5 miles per houror to turning an ignition switch to operate the engine.
When the lockout circuit senses that the vehicle is operating or in a condition to operate, operation of tire inflation indicator assemblies 19 is optionally disabled. Thus, receipt of an input indicative of operation of the vehicle by tire pressure monitoring controller 18 from lockout 33 would disable operation of tire inflation indicator assemblies Thus, and optionally, control 18 processes the input 32 in order to lock out illumination of tire inflation indicator assemblies 19 during operation of vehicle This further reduces the likelihood of the tire inflation monitoring system providing a distraction not only to the driver of vehicle 12 during normal driving of vehicle 12, but also to operators of vehicles in the vicinity of vehicle Tire inflation monitoring system 16 may additionally receive an input 34 indicative of the locked state of the vehicle doors.
Preferably, control 18 provides outputs to illuminate tire inflation indicator assemblies 19 only when the vehicle doors are in an unlocked state, which is likely when the tires of the vehicle are being inflated. Most preferably, control 18 is capable of illuminating tire inflation indicator assemblies 19, in response to a sensed tire inflation condition only for a predetermined period of time after door lock input 34 indicates that the vehicle doors have changed to an unlocked state and, optionally and preferably, after ignition sensing circuit 32 indicates that the vehicle ignition is not operating i.
