Capacitive sensors

ams OSRAM's highly accurate capacitive sensors enable reliable and accurate presence sensing of humans.

Presence sensing with a capacitive sensor

With the rise of automated driving, hands-on-wheel detection is gaining importance. Beside comfort, the main motivation of driver assistance systems is a safer driving experience. ams OSRAM's capacitive sensor provides flexible, reliable and long-lasting capacitive sensing for human interaction detection and can also be used in various applications in the automotive sector for other types of measurements, such as fluid levels. ams OSRAM's I&Q demodulation-based capacitive sensors, separate the measured capacitance into the parasitic resistive and capacitive part. Therefore the sensors are ideal for detecting human presence or interaction, as well as sensing different liquids and fluid levels.
