Installing New TPMS

I plan on replacing my wheels/tires/suspension soon and went ahead and purchased a new set of TPMS and valve stems. My question is, do you have to do anything for the car to recognize the new sensors?
Is it just as easy as resetting from the iDrive?
What if the old tires are sitting in close proximity (say in an install bay) to the car, how does the car tell the difference on which sensors it should listen to?

Assuming they're the right frequency, you just put them on and run the reset procedure from the manual. The car needs to be moving to do the reset, so the other sensors will not be detected.
