Abstract

See full text

A tire pressure monitoring system electronic control unit for hands free operation of a trunk of a vehicle includes a receiver configured to receive pressure data transmitted from a tire pressure monitoring system sensor, and also include a vehicle controller area network interface configured to send a control signal to a body control module using a vehicle network. The tire pressure monitoring system electronic control unit further includes a control circuit configured to send the control signal to the body control module using the vehicle controller area network interface, wherein the control signal causes the body control module to open the trunk of the vehicle, and wherein the control circuit sends the control signal in response to determining, using the pressure data, that the tire of the vehicle has been kicked.
