distance and provides increased protection in emergency situations. The electronically controlled system recognises a "panic stop" by monitoring the rate of the brake application and initiates full braking within a fraction of a second, reducing the car's braking distance by as much as 20 percent. This technology is in production on several vehicles today, including SUV's, trucks, and personal vehicles. . Fuel CellsA fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device... (read more)

DEWE-VGPS-200C 200 Hz Speed / Distance Sensor
Where are you and how fast are you going? That's what GPS sensors and interfaces are ideal for telling you. We're all familiar with the 1 Hz GPS-based navigation systems found in cars, boats, and hand-held systems, but if you increase the speed and accuracy, GPS can also be used for dynamic braking and handling vehicle testing applications. Fast GPS can replace the old fashioned "fifth wheel" sensor used to test cars, as well as the more modern optical/digial fifth wheels, in many applications... (read more)
