In recent years the automobile comfort and safety greatly improved by incorporation of specialized sensors. These sensors monitor the satisfactory working of different parts of an automobile by providing timely information to the driver. Tyre inflation pressure sensor is one of the important devices whose satisfactory working will improve tyre life as well fuel economy. The present work is focussed on modeling of a Cavity-Less pressure sensor for sensing inflation tyre pressure. Dielectric soft material for the sensor is taken as Silicone rubber. The sensor is modeled using finite element technique. The influence of width to thickness ratio of dielectric material for square geometry is studied. It is observed that change in capacitance increases with the applied pressure. The highest sensitivity of 4.79 fF/kPa is obtained for a sensor with width to thickness ratio of 100.
