An MEMS for automobile sensors are computer systems that govern and control the car’s complete mechanical, electronic, and electrical systems. At the nanoscale, these systems integrate nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) with nanotechnology.

Several applications have become well-known because of their widespread use in cars. Certain apps with the most advanced capabilities are mostly available in high-end models, but they are on their way to becoming common. Automotive MEMS sensors are categorized according to their functions, which include crash detection for airbag management, vehicle dynamic control, rollover detection, antitheft systems, electronic parking brake systems, car navigation systems, and so on. Automotive MEMS sensors are primarily made up of a microprocessor/central unit that processes data and a number of microsensors that interact with the environment. Silicon, polymers, and metals such as gold, nickel, aluminum, copper, tungsten, chromium, titanium, and platinum are often utilized materials for the construction of automobile MEMS sensor systems/semiconductor devices.
