Automotive Sensors

Book Description

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 work, part of Momentum Press's new Sensors Technology series, edited by Dr. Joe Watson, will offer 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' -- Both on-vehicle sensors as well as outdoor highway sensors for traffic control -- Power train, ignition control, fuel control, emission control, suspension control, braking and traction control -- Use of capacitive sensors for proximity monitoring
