Kavlico offers a combined pressure and temperature sensor for use with the natural refrigerant R744 (C02) in mobile air conditioning systems. The sensor meets the company’s green initiative by replacing ozone depleting or global warming refrigerants with R744 to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. The rugged sensor features a hermetically sealed stainless housing, operating pressure range of 0 to150 bar (0 to 2175 psi), and operating process media temperature range of -40 to +180ºC (-40 to +356ºF). It can be specified with either an analog, SPI, LIN2.0, or CAN bus output and tolerates high vibration environments. A metal-injection-molded design decreases package size and improves installation. The sensor does not use an external probe for measuring temperature, and its sense element is based on the company’s TiON (Titanium OxyNitride) thin film technology, capable of withstanding high media temperatures.

Get ready for the “pod” car: Ford announced today that it intends to mass-produce a driverless, fully autonomous vehicle for commercial ride-sharing or ride-hailing service in 2021. The vehicle apparently will be the embodiment of today’s notion of the driverless-vehicle extreme: it will have no steering wheel, brake or accelerator pedals, said president and CEO Mark Fields during the announcement at the company’s Palo Alto, CA, research campus.
Model ASUH miniature hybrid high-integrity pressure transducer from KA Sensors is designed for use in rugged environments from -65 to +300ºF (-54 to +149ºC) and vibration levels of more than 20 g.
Time of flight (ToF) cameras are ready to let drivers control some of the many options of today’s infotainment systems with a mere wave of their hand. ToF-based systems can also monitor drivers to see if they’re drowsy or not watching roadways.
