French term or phrase:forceurs
I'm assuming it is a transmitter, but is there another name in this specific application?
XXX est le leader européen des outils associés aux système de surveillance de la pression des pneus : apprentissage automatique en usine, forceurs LF, récepteurs RF, …
YYY a acquis depuis plusieurs années une expérience et une compétence reconnue dans le domaine du développement de TPMS pour le compte de clients dans le domaine de l’automobile.
is my educated guess - because one has to convert a mechanical quantity - pressure - into an electrical signal then compare it (versus a fixed or variable threshold), encode the result and transmit it over Radio Frequency. Transmitter can also be - but not in the radio communications domain but rather in the instrumentation domain.
Here's a bit more blurb with the word 'forçage' this time.

who xxx are, and what method they use for powering their sensors. Schrader quote 10 years for battery life, which must surely exceed the life of the tyre. Whether I'm right or wrong, I'd be interested to know for sure what they mean by "forceur". Maybe it's just the pressure sensor itself?
I did some work for Schrader a few years ago on a tyre-deflection generator to replace the lithium cell they had been using for their TPMS, the idea being that each revolution of the tyre was associated with a small periodic displacement, in turn used to generate power from a small piezo cantilever. It is possible that such a generator could be the "forceur", especially if you assume that LF means low frequency. I forget the frequency of transmission of the pressure to an RF receiver, but it would naturally be in one of the allowed bands, I guess at several tens of MHz.
