The aim is the development and design of new sensor devices for the automotive industry, which are also applicable for biomedical application. This project which involves world renowned experts in micromagnetics and Infineon, the world market leader in semiconductor based sensors will lead to the unique opportunity to solve the challenging problem of computer aided design and development of large scale semiconductor-based magnetic sensors. This interplay between simulation and experiments is believed to be the key success factor of this project. This combined effort will be used to optimize existing sensors, to solve performance issues, and to develop new designs for improved sensing. The financial support by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and the National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development (CD Laboratory AMSEN) is gratefully acknowledged.
