Sensata Showcases Leading Edge Technologies at Frankfurt Auto Show (IAA)

  * Compact, solid-state LiDAR sensor developed with Quanergy
  * Sensata also featuring sensors to improve connectivity and support

HENGELO, The Netherlands and FRANKFURT, Germany, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE
NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata Technologies (NYSE:ST), a leading provider of sensors to
the automotive, heavy vehicle, aerospace and industrial industries, is
showcasing some of its latest sensor technologies for connectivity,
electrification and automated driving at this week’s Frankfurt Auto Show

“We are excited to bring our portfolio of innovative sensor technologies to
IAA,” said Paul Chawla, Senior Vice President, Performance Sensing Europe and
South America. “As a sensor supplier with more than three decades of
experience leading new advancements across the industry, we are
well-positioned to support these emerging areas for our automotive customers.”

A new solid-state LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor for highly
automated driving cars is the feature of Sensata’s exhibit. LiDAR is critical
to the development of autonomous and highly automated driving vehicles
and essential for the reliable detection and classification of objects in a
vehicle’s path. Developed in partnership with Quanergy Systems, an innovator
in the field of solid-state LiDAR sensors, the S3 sensor will be on display.

The S3 LiDAR sensor from Sensata and Quanergy uses the Optical Phased Array
principle to scan the field of view and is a scanning LiDAR sensor with no
moving parts, thereby contributing to increased reliability of the automated
driving system. Another advantage of the S3 sensor is the ability to scan
areas of interest within the field of view on demand through dynamic laser
beam positioning without having to go through the entire field of view

Steve Beringhause, Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President,
Performance Sensing, Auto, for Sensata Technologies, explains: “Nearly every
car on the road today is equipped with sensors and technology from Sensata,
and we are leaders in pressure and high temperaure sensing. We are now
accelerating investments in new technologies such as LiDAR and vehicle health
management. Together with Quanergy, we are pursuing a solid-state,
optical-phased array LiDAR sensor. These sensors – which are compact, have no
moving parts and offer customers strong performance and reliability – have the
potential to enable widespread adoption of highly automated driving features.”

Sensata is also highlighting some examples of it’s suite of vehicle health
management sensors at its booth located in the IAA New Mobility World - Hall
3.1, Booth B.23.
