Modern vehicle restraint systems employ side airbag pressure sensors for passenger car safety. Integrated into the side doors, these sensors transmit digital crash signals to the central airbag unit. Moreover, the air pressure sensor enhances engine efficiency by precisely controlling spark advances in gasoline and diesel engines. Consequently, the market is poised for development as pressure sensors find increasing use in both engine and vehicle safety systems.

In the next few years, the autonomous capabilities of commercially available vehicles are expected to advance rapidly. This progress is driven by stricter regulations and safety tests, particularly for emergency brake assist, as well as a growing emphasis on vehicle safety. Developed countries already mandate functions such as cruise control and lane-keep assist on all vehicles, while regulations for blind-spot monitoring, especially in Europe, are gaining traction.

To enable features like adaptive cruise control, these vehicles rely on long-range radar sensors, along with approximately two medium-range backward-facing radar sensors for blind spot detection. Additionally, up to 12 ultrasonic sensors are necessary for functionalities such as parking assistance. As the demand for autonomous driving features continues to grow, the utilization of high-precision sensors is expected to rise accordingly.
