Delphi will research sensor

FLINT, Mich. - Delphi Automotive Systems Corp. of Troy, Mich., and nonprofit transportation technology research organization Electricore Inc. are working together to develop a low-cost nitrogen oxide sensor for vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy will spend as much as $1.85 million to match the companies' investment.

The companies must design the sensor so it can be produced in high volume at low cost. Most of the work will be done at Delphi sites in Michigan and Indiana.
