Bringing together shared goals

References and projects in the field of vehicle technology

Sensors and systems from CAPTRON have been in daily use all over the world since 1983. With our varied portfolio of products, we are able to quickly and flexibly create sensor solutions that are ready to ship and which are adapted to the needs of our customers.

But we also produce customised application solutions. We've put together a selection of the projects we have carried out both at home and abroad on the following page.

In addition to a description of each project, you’ll also find an expert from our list of references.
