Bosch acceleration sensors for chassis control
Chassis control systems can make an important contribution to driving comfort and safety in cars, and they are based on sensors that precisely record the dynamics of the chassis and body. The two new Bosch SMB431 and SMB433 low-g acceleration sensors are tailor-made for this task. The SMB431 records vertical movements of the body in a range of ±1.6 g (where 1 g = 9.81 m/s2). The SMB433 measures the wheels’ vertical accelerations in the ±16 g range. The two new sensors are already available in sample quantities for engineering purposes.
