Sensing is what we do.

In fact, our name Sensata comes from the Latin word sensate or ‘those gifted with sense’. Our focus on sensing is also reflected in our logo, which spells Sensata in Braille.

Sensata Technologies is a world leader and early innovator in mission-critical sensors and controls designed to make the world cleaner, safer and more efficient. Mission-critical means products that are essential and difficult to do. You’ll find our 47,000 unique products in many applications – anywhere from automotive braking systems to aircraft flight controls. 

Sensata devices are in systems that protect people and the environment, so what we do matters. We take pride in knowing our technologies improve safety, efficiency and comfort for millions of people every day.

Future Focus



We are ready for the next century.

Our vision is to be a world leader in mission-critical sensing and electrical protection while satisfying the world’s growing need for safety, efficiency and a clean environment and being a partner, employer and neighbor of choice.

Our sensors are the fundamental building blocks needed for a smart, connected, electrified and, ultimately, autonomous world.

There are four major trends that will shape our markets over the next decade.

Clean & Efficient
Sensata sensors are being used to make more efficient industrial pumps, improve fuel efficiency in cars and heavy off-road vehicles and more.
As electric vehicles rise in popularity and demand, they require sensors to monitor and optimize everything from battery systems to thermal management systems.
Sensata is developing sensors that will enable light passenger cars, off-road vehicles and material handling equipment to operate autonomously.
Smart & Connected
Sensata is developing smart, connected sensors that enable actionable insights for commercial vehicle operators.
