Imagine dispensing of position sensors for electric seat adjustment, automatic tailgates, power windows, and sunroofs. Gentherm has made this a reality with IPS. By using an electronic control system for electric motors, we have been able to dispense with the position sensors necessary in conventional systems.
Instead, the position is determined by means of a sophisticated software algorithm which detects and counts the recurring disturbances during the changeover of the electric motor’s poles. This allows reliable and accurate positioning without the need to measure the motor’s position using an external sensor.
Gentherm delivers Memory Seat Modules as independent control units to coordinate control of personal comfort and convenience settings. Our MSMs are capable of motoring seat positions via common hall sensors or our patented Intelligent Positioning System – IPS.
Gentherm PilotSense Hands on Detection Electronic Control Module works to ensure a safe and comfortable drive. The Sensing element under the steering wheel cover is used to precisely detect if an occupant’s hands are on or off the Steering Wheel. Our single ECM to control both the HOD and heater is unique in that it doesn’t require interrupting the heater functionality for sensing HOD status.
