Automotive Sensor Technology

Machine vision is only as good as its sensors.

Vehicles depend more and more on sensors that are smart, responsive and dependable. Sensors need to inform drivers, read road signs, and talk to each other. They need to stay aware of dangers, obstacles and rapidly changing conditions.

Sensors need to be strategically placed, secure and above all, functional. But 3M Science adds another layer of thinking: Design. You want a sensor that does its job without calling attention to itself. Out of sight, out of mind.

3M Science offers next generation materials, cross industry expertise and real world experience to bring proven solutions to your engineering and design challenges.
