Magnetic Field Sensor and Its Application to Automobiles 800123

A direction sensor, which measures the terrestrial magnetism and its application to automobiles are discussed.

The heading display system which consists of a direction sensor, a control circuit and a display device works quite well. A Trip Computer with more attractive features can be easily embodied by applying this sensor.
