Plessey develops sensor solution to monitor driver fatigue

Plessey develops sensor solution to monitor driver fatigue
Plessey has developed a novel solution to monitor driver fatigue that is based on its multi-award winning EPIC sensor technology. According to the British Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, research shows that driver fatigue may be a contributory factor in up to 20% of road accidents and up to a quarter of fatal and serious accidents. Car manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to make their vehicles safer especially as safety can be a strong selling point.

Rugged MEMs pressure sensors from Melexis deliver high accuracy & ease of use via innovative technology

Rugged MEMs pressure sensors from Melexis deliver high accuracy & ease of use via innovative technology
Melexis introduces the first of its new line of commercial, off the shelf, packaged MEMs pressure sensors. The MLX90809 benefits from 10+ years of developing custom MEMs pressure sensors for demanding automotive applications. This device is a highly accurate, AEC Q100 qualified relative pressure sensor specifically targeted at 1 Bar applications. The company’s proprietary piezo-resistive MEMS technology combined with a high accuracy sensing element, low noise analog front end and 16-bit sigma-delta analog-to-digital converter (ADC) delivers superior performance. The resulting sophisticated analog chain provides the necessary amplification and offset compensation for the sensing element. The built-in 16-bit microcontroller unit (MCU) deals with temperature compensation and supplies the diagnostic mechanisms required for safety critical applications.

New Bosch MEMS acceleration sensors Fifth generation of sensitive crash detectors SMA58x and SMA59x in SOIC14n housing

Bosch has introduced the next generation of peripheral acceleration sensors for passenger protection systems in vehicles – the fifth since 1996. The key features of the new digital sensors include a wide measurement range of between ±120 g and ±480 g and the choice of communication via the SPI or the PSI5-V1.3 interface. Peripheral sensors are located at the outermost points of a vehicle's engine compartment, at the sides, or at the rear, thus enabling them to recognize a collision quickly. However, the new fifth-generation models can do more than simply register a crash. In just a few milliseconds, they transfer to the airbag control unit all the data needed by the electronics system to determine with absolute certainty whether a collision is minor or serious. The control unit checks the plausibility of the incoming sensor data before deciding which vehicle restraint systems (e.g. front, head or side airbag and seat-belt pretensioners) to activate.
