Hella - Use Cases for a Solid-Borne Vibration Sensor

Placeholder Show Content



Piezo technology is one of those smart materials that will be relevant for a wide range of industries in the near future. In general, it is possible to divide piezo technology into 5 different application areas. These correspond to placing & positioning, measuring & inspection, materials treatment, power supply, and vibration applications. HELLA has now developed SHAKE which is a piezo- based device to measure structure-borne vibrations. Since HELLA is mainly producing parts for the automotive market the first applications, they have used the SHAKE technology in, are surface vibration detections for cars.
To widen the range of potential applications for SHAKE HELLA started the design challenge: Find potential viable use cases for the short, mid and long-term to improve safety, the environment and comfort from a holistic, strategic view on the different applications. with us.
