Using its vibration analysis technology and know-how, Akebono offers sensor products including acceleration sensors, angular rate sensors and sensor clusters.
One example of a large variety of sensors used on modern motor vehicles are ABS system acceleration sensors. They detect how vehicles decelerate and are also used by navigation systems.
Sensor clusters are used in electronic stability control (ESC) systems to determine the position and movement of the vehicle and adjust the wheels to avoid skidding and improve steering control.
Apart from motor vehicle applications, sensors are also used in trains, global positioning systems (GPS) and multiple other areas.
