The automotive sensor module is made of cover, sensor and wiring unit. The cover holds the sensors in its place and this include connector which creates a connection with devices which is fitted externally. Further, the cover includes wiring units, these wires are attached with connector to the sensors. The wiring includes a second connector terminal, which is again integrated with the first connected terminal. The automotive sensor module includes a wide range of application in the vehicle. Some of the key application for the automotive module includes accurate real-time monitoring.
