Automotive Sensors

£85.00

Product description

Automotive Sensors reviews the current instrumentation, charts the development of car-based sensors and indicates possible courses for future development. Coverage includes:
- Sensors already in volume application
- Sensors currently under development
- Devices, including torque transducers, which are currently restricted to use in development laboratories.

In well-thought out sections, the reader learns the history of the use of sensors from the early days of motoring and how sensors are currently applied in a wide range of automotive control systems. This information is then expanded in further chapters describing in detail the construction, operation characteristics and method of use of sensors for each of the major parameters of interest to automotive control system designers. Closing chapters describe the current status of smart sensors, the sophisticated range of sensors required to enable intelligent vehicles to communicate and react to external events on the road, and future developments in intelligent sensors and control systems which could result in significant new ways of using the technology.

This is a valuable reference for researchers in automotive R&D, and required reading for electrical and mechanical engineers and sensor designers in the automotive industry. The technical level is pitched at those requiring an introduction to the subject, design theory and sensor physics are covered in depth and the breadth of coverage extends from instrumentation to those sensors which will eventually achieve high-volume manufacturing status. The text is comprehensively illustrated and well-referenced. The authors' lively style, and careful thought to relevant theory and historical detail will ensure that Automotive Sensors remains an essential reference tool for many years to come.

This book is in excellent condition throughout.
