RHEINTACHO Sensor-Mapping The no-fake-signals-solution

The perfect combination of speed sensor and sensor target is crucial for robust and reliable signal detection. In practice, however, it is unfortunately the case that there can be contradictions between a target that is ideal for capturing and a target which is constructive or cost-effective. In these cases, the search for a compromise begins. A solution has to balance the differing goals practically.

In this task, it is of course optimal, if different variants can be reliably and objectively evaluated in a very early development phase. In this case, professional and precise sensor-mapping is a valuable tool.
