Angle and motion sensors are widely used in vehicles for applications such as pedal position-sensing, throttle control, and in transmissions and steering wheels. It hardly needs stating that, particularly in steering systems and the throttle, reliable operation is absolutely essential to the safety of the driver, passengers, other road users and pedestrians. Automotive sensors, then, must be extremely robust, and perform reliably for the whole life of the vehicle.
