Sensor designed for angular position sensing in automotive applications

Sensor designed for angular position sensing in automotive applications
The dual die 360° angle sensor TLE5012BD from Infineon is designed for angular position sensing in automotive applications such as electrical commutated motors, steering angle measurements or general angular sensing. It detects the orientation of a magnetic field by measuring sine and cosine angle components with monolithic integrated Giant Magneto Resistance (iGMR) elements.

Depth sensors could be sensitive enough for self-driving cars

Depth sensors could be sensitive enough for self-driving cars
  For the past 10 years, the Camera Culture group at MIT’s Media Lab has been developing innovative imaging systems — from a camera that can see around corners to one that can read text in closed books — by using 'time of flight,' an approach that gauges distance by measuring the time it takes light projected into a scene to bounce back to a sensor.

Boosting GNSS with sensor fusion

Boosting GNSS with sensor fusion
Have you ever been led astray by your car’s GPS? After following it blindly for an hour, it suddenly dawns on you that you’re heading in the wrong direction. The immediate instinct is to blame the device, even though it’s much more likely that you misinterpreted its instructions or mistyped your destination. Either way, you’re fuming behind the wheel and not an inch closer to where you want to go.
