According to TRW, the new full-function key fob will look virtually like any other, except that it will incorporate tire temperature and inflation pressure signals sent from the transmitters located in the TPMS sensor units in each individual tire.

The integrated system is anticipated to launch in 2012 for a 2013 model year vehicle, TRW said.  

"This system simplifies the electronics architecture by eliminating the need for separate receivers for these two systems – we can maintain the performance characteristics while using less space and reducing system weight and wiring complexity, leading to lower material and assembly costs,” said Martin Thoone, vice president of global electronics engineering.
