What: Brake system sensor
Innovation: Electrohydraulic brakes typically operate with two separate magnetic sensors — a pedal travel sensor that detects brake pedal position, and a motor position sensor that determines the position of the brake motor. Hella has developed a technology that combines both sensors into one integrated inductive sensor, achieving significant cost reduction and performance benefits, while shaving time off the brake system assembly process.
