Haptic pedals will reduce the flashing and beeping in the car

The accelerator pedal as an interface: Haptic driver communication is perceived as discreet and effective Our vehicles are being equipped with more and more driver assistance systems, leading to better supported drivers and protected occupants. If necessary, errors are not only indicated, but even corrected. Plans are afoot to further improve the protection of pedestrians […]

Differential Pressure Sensors for the challenges of Euro 6

The region between particulate filter and catalyst needs differential pressure sensors for higher accuracy Following my latest post about pressure measuring at the particulate filter, I would like to talk specifically about Euro 6 today. To meet the requirements and to achieve a reduction in nitrogen oxides, we need another catalyst behind the particulate filter. […]

Step on the accelerator pedal – but protect the environment at the same time

Electronic accelerator pedals support today’s challenges Can you remember? Those were the days of carefree motoring: stepping on the accelerator pedal, the wind in your hair, and ‘Born to be Wild’ blaring out over the radio. Today, mobility is more important than ever, as transport of people and goods drives prosperity and growth. Yet our […]

Pressure Sensors in the exhaust system

With this blog I should like to make another contribution to the discussion of pressure sensing and control in the exhaust system. Today`s topic: Pressure sensors before and after the particulate filter. As stated in my last post, the exhaust after treatment for combustion engines is largely determined by thermodynamic processes. Temperature and pressure conditions […]
