The switch to steer-by-wire systems is a huge change in vehicle design. To ensure the safety of this shift, water ingress monitoring is essential.
Water ingress into the electronics can cause corrosion, resulting in unforeseen malfunctions of steer-by-wire systems. With sensors that constantly monitor the water ingress, functional safety can be guaranteed under all driving conditions.
Given the UNECE regulatory framework, manufacturers must proof that their steer-by-wire system is completely reliable under all conditions and protected by fail-safe mechanisms. Our sensors allow you to comply with these regulations as they accurately monitor water ingress.
With the trend toward higher levels of automation, car manufacturers are now opting to replace the mechanical connections between the steering wheel and the wheels with fully electronic connections.
With over 20 years of experience in humidity and temperature sensing, we are aware of many challenges and know how to overcome them.
