New materials and technological developments in electronics and computers have changed all of the industries, as well as the world itself. These technological advancements have evolved automotive industry by redefining the concepts like: performance, efficiency, fuel consumption, driving dynamics, ergonomics etc. to a level far beyond expected. In this paper, the development stages; including the finite element analysis of the current sensors, using finite element analysis to design a new sensor, is elaborated. The new model designed in this study is computationally validated for production purposes and is planned to be experimentally tested. Also, in this paper a novel liquid level sensing device development strategy is presented in detail.
