Steering-wheel mounted switch and thumb-wheel modules allow the driver to operate critical functions without releasing the wheel. The modules communicate with the vehicle via a LIN-Bus link.
An acoustic engineer believed the tonal quality of Stradivarius violins was a result of minute thickness variations in the front and back panels. We built a nondestructive magnetic mapping system so that he could acquire cross-sectional images of the panels and view them on a PC.
