Read more Radar-based sensor network helps drivers finding a parking spot February 26, 2015Radar-based sensor network helps drivers finding a parking spot Searching for a parking spot can be quite annoying. In particular in urban areas, motorists waste lots of time and fuel on the search for a place where they can leave their vehicle - for a couple of minutes or overnight. A test project in Munich currently puts a radar-based sensor network through its paces that could help drivers to find a parking spot faster and easier. Read more Infineon: CAN FD success goes at the expense of FlexRay February 25, 2015Infineon: CAN FD success goes at the expense of FlexRay The faster version of the venerable CAN bus, CAN FD is currently taking off at several carmakers. Infineon's Thomas Böhm, Head of Body / Automotive, believes this could well go at the expense of FlexRay. Read more Surface mount rotary position sensors maximise precision at 1% linearity February 20, 2015Surface mount rotary position sensors maximise precision at 1% linearity Murata has announced what it claims to be the most precise surface-mount type rotary position sensors available, the compact and low-profile SVK3 series. With linearity of ±1%, the sensors achieve twice the precision of the preceding products and withstand the automotive temperature range. Read more
