Vehicle Sensor Technology

It is likely that there are many of us out there who are unaware of the sensors and technology used and how they operate – both individually and collectively.

By seamlessly integrating vehicles and sensing devices, their sensing and communication capabilities can be leveraged to achieve smart and intelligent transportation systems.

Three major sensors amongst dozens are essential for safety –

Airbags sensors – After seatbelts, airbags are one of the most important safety features in modern vehicles. To keep passengers safe during an accident, airbags must deploy immediately after a crash occurs. And to help airbags deploy in time, crash sensors have the important job of detecting a collision and quickly triggering the airbags.

Speed sensors – Speed sensors communicate important data to the engine about the car’s speed, which in turn helps the engine regulate its functions. As a result, speed sensors are an extremely important component in any vehicle. You can usually find a vehicle’s speed sensor near the transaxle or transmission.

Fuel sensors – A functional fuel level sensor is essential. If a car owner doesn’t know how much fuel is in their tank, they could end up stranded on the side of the road.
