GPS Navigation

Honeywell's electronic compass modules are used for compass solutions as the perfect complement to GPS navigation systems.

Magnetic Sensor Components

Honeywell’s magnetoresistive sensors are able to sense Earth’s magnetic field (~0.6 gauss) and provide the sensitivity for enhanced accuracy and performance.


Honeywell magnetometers offer low cost, high sensitivity, fast response, and a reliable alternative to mechanical or other magnetometer systems.

Position Sensing

Honeywell offers non-contact position sensing solutions with a family of low-cost position sensors including linear position sensors, angular position sensors, and rotary position sensors that are highly accurate, reliable, and offer exceptional longevity.

Vehicle Detection

Whether mounted in the pavement, or alongside vehicle traffic lanes, Honeywell's magneto-resistive sensor technology offers high sensitivity solutions for detecting vehicles and managing traffic.
