This month’s issue, available in print or digital editions, contains features on Sensor technologies & Automotive applications.

As we approach the next key date in our ongoing Brexit soap opera, it seems #UKMFG is facing a perfect storm as my Editor's comment this month reviews UK PMI data & the outlook for UK manufacturing (p4 digital issue or web version)...

Our cover story explains how sensor fusion incorporating multi-band precision GNSS with integrated RTK algorithms, broadcast GNSS correction services, in-vehicle sensors and IMU dead reckoning, plus a dynamic vehicle model, can deliver the absolute accuracy demanded by v2x, ADAS and autonomous driving applications (p23 digital issue or web version).

For Sensors, we explore how sensors, as the source of data, are a vital component in delivering digital transformation and IoT applications (p20 digital issue or web version); how SPICE software can help design engineers working on applications incorporating digital thermometer sensors save time amd money (p30 digital issue or web version); and how EMI-resistant magnetic position sensors can help improve reliability and efficiency in modern electric, hybrid and even internal combustion vehicles (p17 digital issue or web version).

Meanwhile, for Automotive, as embedded electronic systems, such as ADAS, proliferate in modern vehicles, we take a closer look at how advanced ferroelectric random access memory (F-RAM) offers an automotive grade non-volatile memory (NVM) option that is reliable, low power and faster than current NVM solutions (p11 digital issue or web version).

We also include a show preview for productronica, the world’s leading trade fair for the electronics production industry (p6 digital issue or web version).

And in T&M, we examine how transfer function measurements can address test challenges for smart speakers and other speech communication devices (p33 digital issue or web version). 

And finally, my regular STEM column looks at a new national awareness day for engineering (p38 digital issue or web version).

As always, I hope you enjoy the issue – and I’d love to hear what you think or any ideas for topics you’d like EPDT to cover. You can email me at mark.gradwell@imlgroup.co.uk...
