Automotive Sensors B-MOM-001

Sensors are the eyes, ears, and more, of the modern engineered product or system. The modern automobile would not be what it is today without an entire battery of sensors that monitor, and control, everything from engine performance to passenger safety and comfort.

This authoritative reference offers a complete review of all sensors and their associated controls systems typically found in the modern automotive vehicle.

Readers will find invaluable data and guidance on:

  • automotive telematics
  • on-board vehicle sensors
  • outdoor highway sensors for traffic control
  • ignition, fuel, emissions, suspension, braking and traction control sensors
  • use of capacitive sensors for proximity monitoring

Choosing the correct sensor for cost, efficiency and durability is critical to the mechanics of a vehicle. This book will help engineers, technicians, and designers to better understand the wide range of sensors, their purpose and application.
