Steering-angle position sensors measure steering wheel movement and are usually mounted on the steering column (rotary sensor) or the steering rack (linear sensor). The steering angle information is important to race engineer's to evaluate the vehicles steering characteristics verses chassis movement and also driver performance. The sensors are also used in electro-hydraulic power-assisted steering systems for varying the assistance given to the driver depending on the vehicles speed and cornering. Active Sensors offer a number of 'motorsport ready' sensor solutions for steering angle measurement.
