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.

MEMS sensors ensure vehicle safety

MEMS sensors ensure vehicle safety
  The increasingly electronic nature of modern cars means that there are more automatic safety systems than ever before. These systems require accurate input about the car’s movement to determine when the car is moving (or will move) in a potentially unsafe way, in order to trigger the appropriate response, be it deploying the airbags or applying the handbrake.

Sensor technology may be relevant for EV batteries

Sensor technology may be relevant for EV batteries
Engineers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum have developed a concept for current and voltage sensors for batteries that might become particularly relevant for electric vehicles (EV). An EV battery is made up of individual blocks, each of which contain up to twelve cells. Typically, each cell is monitored by its own voltage sensor. Designed by Philip Dost, the new system requires only one single voltage sensor, thus reducing overall weight and costs.
