5 Key Sensors That Can Affect Your Vehicle
In the late 1900s, a central processor and chain of sensors controlled the various functions of vehicle’s drivetrains and engine. Such functions they controlled were:
- Anti-lock braking
- Emission control
- Fuel metering and delivery
- Traction control
- Transmission shift points
The engine’s functions were carried out by the distributor, carburettor, throttle kick down linkage and vacuum spark advance. Now, a drivetrain computer and various sensors are in control of these important functions. What kinds of sensors is a vehicle installed with and how they do work?
Parking Sensors Make Parking Easier
Parallel parking is often regarded as the bane of most drivers’ existence. After all, drivers have to determine how much space their vehicle needs and where the vehicle’s front and rear bumpers are. Stick a new driver behind the wheel and ask them to parallel park, and this can be a very difficult task to do successfully.
