Positioning measurements with HallinOne®
Reliable, robust, precise and cost-effective. The demands on positioning systems are becoming ever more complex. In modern vehicles for example, the input elements for the navigation, climate control and ventilator systems must able to detect the rotation angle, draft or pressure directions at the same time. In a mechanical construction, the corresponding solutions are complex and costly.
The HallinOne® technology developed by Fraunhofer IIS makes it possible to detect a magnetic field using an integrated Hall sensor with nearly 100 percent precision. Combining these magnetic field sensors with an intelligent evaluation algorithm opens up new opportunities for multi-axis position measurements. That means a mechanical six degrees-of-freedom measurement system could be operated with a single sensor chip, such as what would be required in the previously mentioned example.
