- Packing machines - Angle sensors are often used in label, paper and foil wrapping machines. In order to hold the draw-off speed of the object, a dancer stirrup which has an angle sensor mounted in its center of motion is used.
- Four-wheel steering control - Angle sensors are fitted directly to the the kingpins in road sweepers, for easily manouvering between parked cars and other obstructions.
