There is a wide range of automotive magnetic sensors. This report narrows them down to “2D position sensors” (aka “angular sensors”).

Four different technologies are used in magnetic sensors:

  • Hall Effect (five sensors analyzed)
  • AMR (five sensors)
  • GMR (two sensors)
  • TMR (one sensor)
