Motor sports

Due to the increasing importance of aerodynamics for motor sport and the asso­ciated demand for a constantly optimum distance of vehicle to road, laser sensors are now being used more and more in other racing classes, such as DTM, apart from Formula 1 in which they have already been used for a long time.

In addition to merely measuring the distance and shock absorber travel for optimum chassis balance, these sensors also allow the active regulation of a chassis in a further step. Extreme demands are made with regard to shock resistance and miniaturi­sation due to the restricted space available in motor sport.
