The automotive industry is in a very dynamic environment and undergoing constant change. In addition to e-mobility, innovative assistance functions that enable semi-autonomous or autonomous driving are playing an increasingly crucial role. However, predicting consumption and wear is also becoming increasingly important and forms the basis for individually planned service and inspection intervals. AST's sensors play an essential role in the implementation of these technology trends. For example, our current/voltage sensors enable the measurement of currents in the range of several thousand amperes and are used in the electric drive systems of vehicles.

The H2 sensor developed by AST is an essential component of the safety design of vehicles with fuel cell-based drive systems. Furthermore, our sensors for determining service intervals and monitoring systems relevant to function and safety are increasingly finding their way into the automotive industry. Specifically, they measure and check the fill level and quality of liquids as well as the position and distances traveled in assemblies. Typical applications include, among others: systems for cleaning windshields and camera systems, battery cooling systems, and exhaust gas treatment with AdBlue®.

They are also used in brake systems, battery management systems, and a wide variety of controls in the vehicle.
