Automotive Applications

Hamlin works with many of the world’s leading Tier One suppliers to the automotive industry to apply sensor technology to a wide range of needs.   We are used to the high quality and production demands placed on a supplier and have the experience to support design engineers in a wide range of applications.

Sensing solutions from Hamlin perform reliably in the harsh and challenging environment of a vehicle engine compartment: from safety-critical applications to just making a driver’s life a little easier. Since first developed by Hamlin, in excess of 250 million vehicle safing sensors (used to trigger the deployment of airbags and seatbelt pretensioners) have been shipped with no recorded instance of failure or uncommanded deployment in an accident situation.

Applications in speed and direction sensing and emissions control are now in active development for the next generation of vehicle management systems.
