What is the driving force in the automotive sensors market?
Sensors are crucial components of automotive electronic control systems, as modern automobiles rely on electronic systems to meet emission and safety standards. Sensors are the devices that convert physical quantities such as acceleration, temperature, speed, or pressure into electrical signals that serve as inputs for control systems.

Electromagnetic fields remotely disable vehicles

Electromagnetic fields remotely disable vehicles
An EU team has conceived safe ways of arresting a suspect moving vehicle using high-energy electromagnetic fields. It conducted safety tests in addition to examining relevant legal and ethical considerations. Police have various means of stopping vehicles when necessary, but most cause damage and involve some risk. Law enforcement agencies need a safer and simpler method.

Gateway device overcomes LIN bus limitations

Gateway device overcomes LIN bus limitations
Global microelectronics engineering company, Melexis, has announced a new LIN-to-LIN gateway that overcomes the limitation of just 16 devices on a typical LIN bus. Each MLX81120 connects as a LIN slave on the main LIN bus and is controlled directly from the vehicle's Body Control Module (BCM). The new device allows for up to 16 LIN RGB slave modules on a private LIN bus, thereby permitting up to 196 LED lighting devices to be connected to a single BCM via a LIN bus.

Sensor technology detects water leaks during vehicle production

Sensor technology detects water leaks during vehicle production
The collaboration between ON Semiconductor and RFMicron has expanded in order to develop a complete in-line vehicle production leak detection solution. The RFM5126 Moisture Intrusion Detection System uses battery-free, wireless sensors to detect in-vehicle water leaks caused by incorrect assembly. Detecting leaks and assembly issues before a vehicle leaves the factory is critical to improving outgoing quality and to avoiding customer warranty issues.
