Sensors in the Automotive Industry

The average car on the road today is fitted with a variety of sensors monitoring a whole host of elements from engine speed and mass air flow to parking sensors. In fact, the standard on board diagnostic interface on most automotive vehicles will contain more than 50 individual sensors.

This is largely driven by the relentless pursuit of increased safety, improved reliability, energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact. All of which are becoming more and more important in modern day cars.
