Sensors are essential to the safety, efficiency, and dependability of modern vehicles. Crash sensors can anticipate a collision faster than humans would, and tire pressure sensors can alert the driver or pilot in case action is needed.
In the episode “Sensors: Advanced Safety” (20:36) Continental engineers look at the evolution of passive safety systems, discuss the changes in sensors over the last ten years and what is coming next. Engineers at Meggitt demonstrate how tire pressure monitoring system sensors for aerospace are built and tested.
This episode highlights multiple areas of interest, including:
- Background and definitions of vehicle safety sensors
- A look at the evolution of airbag safety sensors
- Manufacturing of TPMS sensors
- Demonstration of TPMS sensor testing
- Future trends
