Pressure Sensor for Side Crash Detection (SAB)
How Infineon XENSIV(TM) safety pressure sensors make cars safer - PSI5 PRO-SIL™ ready pressure sensors for side crash detection and pedestrian protection
Typical safety-related automotive pressure sensing applications such as side impact and pedestrian protection call for the highest quality and accuracy standards with full ISO26262 compliance. Every year thousands of pedestrians are severely injured in traffic due to slow or failing sensing elements. Our Infineon XENSIV™ safety pressure sensor family includes integrated pressure sensors that tick all these boxes with PSI5 peripheral sensor interfaces for safety-critical use cases. Our sensors supprt new safety systems, increasing the protection of pedestrians and car occupants in the event of a collision.
The Infineon safety pressure sensors deliver a reliable signal with benchmark reaction time in the industry, even though only 2 sensors are needed, the exact impact position over the complete front side can be calculated granting reduced system cost.
