Automotive companies are more concerned about safety and comfort. Indian manufacturers are still dependent on conventional pneumatic systems to control door operations, for normal open and close. In case of obstacle sensing between the doors, the current system is capable of sensing obstacle with some restriction that includes higher operating cost, high lead time for assembly, and finally dissatisfies customer requirements. New position sensor to be designed and developed to control door system effectively, which is easily mountable, easily adaptable to all types of mounting, and cost-effective solution. Therefore, a new linear position sensor compatible with existing ECU, Valves, and system requirement is designed and developed.
