  • Market Research Report
  • MR-AB-016
Published 2015-01-01 by ABOUT Publishing Group in United Kingdom
Two major concerns for automotive engineers are how best to maximize fuel economy and to reduce emissions. Powertrain sensors, which measure temperature, pressure, rotational speed and other vehicle performance parameters, are central to both. There is also a trend in the powertrain sensor industry toward higher temperature and electromagnetic compatibility requirements, due largely to the increasing deployment of smaller engines. This exclusive report from ABOUT Automotive focuses on the following key areas: Temperature sensors: • Manifold air temperature sensor • Engine coolant temperature sensor • Transmission oil temperature sensor • Engine oil temperature sensor • Boost air temperature sensor Pressure sensors: • Manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensors • Barometric pressure (BARO) sensors • Engine oil pressure sensors • Fuel rail pressure sensors • Boost pressure sensors • Air conditioning (A/C) pressure sensors • Brake vacuum pressure sensors Speed sensors: • Transmission input speed sensors • Transmission output speed sensors • Vehicle speed sensors Position sensors: • Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) position sensors • Pedal position sensors • Throttle position sensors • Camshaft position sensors •…

Published 2014-10-01 by ABOUT Publishing Group in United Kingdom
LEDs are now acknowledged as the mainstream standard light source of what might reasonably be called ‘the future already in progress’. Their small size, powerful light emission, extreme reliability, low energy requirement and long lifespan mean that LEDs continue to make quick inroads in automotive sectors governed by cost and performance demands alike. Indeed, since the last edition of this report was published in 2010, the sector has continued to witness a blistering rate of innovation, and LEDs have now broken every automotive application barrier. Nevertheless, there are other light source technologies that have sprung from LED research and development, and some are poised to supplement – or even, in certain applications, supplant them. The study updates and extends ABOUT Publishing’s previous 2010 analysis of this sector, and provides crucial insight in topical areas including: • The market, cost, and adoption trends for automotive exterior LED lighting, with expository coverage of related issues; • The main manufacturers serving this sector and how the market is divided and shared in the main markets worldwide; • Trends…

The increasingly stringent emissions regulations faced by vehicle manufacturers have been driving the growth of more fuel-efficient conventionally powered vehicles. The ability of stop-start systems to improve vehicle carbon emissions by between 5% and 15% at very low additional cost has seen a dramatic increase in the proportion of vehicles being fitted with such systems. And this growth in demand for stop-start systems is set to increase substantially, especially in Europe, North America, China and Japan. The exclusive new report from ABOUT Automotive reviews the key market drivers for stop-start engine technology for the ‘micro hybrid’ segment and conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle applications. It sets out the market drivers and forecasts for the global stop-start systems market through to 2020 and reviews the technical advances made in stop-start technology, including the competing technologies, and the latest developments. It also profiles a number of major suppliers of stop-start systems. The report provides answers to such vital questions as: • Why is the bulk of manufacturer investment now being directed towards improving ICE performance? •…
