Where are the wheel rotation speed sensors for the ABS and TRAC systems on a 2003 Pontiac Montana?
It is on front/rear hub assy - bearing, studs and wheel speed sensor
Brake assist lamp, basically part of the anti-lock brake and/or traction control system, wheel / axle / trans speed sensors, possible inertia sensors and more, track wheel rotation and through computer algorithm - try to detect abnormal wheel spin and/or braking. If you suspect an issue - these systems can be diagnosed via ODB-II connector and proper test equipment with software covering the applicable vehicle and sub-system.
Fire alarms have various sensors. Everything from gauges that determine if water is flowing through pipes, to detectors that contain trace amounts of radiation that ionize causing alarms. They can have heat sensors with varied temperature settings, to valve sensors that ensure that water or suppression systems are not isolated.
Earth's rotation has no direect effect on the flight of aircraft. Aircraft fly in and through the atmosphere, and the atmosphere rotates with the earth. Technically, there is some effect though ... the rotation of high- and low-pressure weather systems is a consequence of the earth's rotation, and commercial aircraft have to be aware of the winds and weather when they plan their flight paths.
The Earth's rotation does not directly affect tornadoes, but it does affect the larger-scale systems that ultimately produce them. Earth's rotation causes large-scale storm systems to rotate, counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern. This is called cyclonic rotation. If wind shear is set up to set thunderstorms rotating, this large-scale wind patter will cause these storms to strongly favor cyclonic rotation. For this reason the vast majority of tornadoes have cyclonic…
The assumption of rotation of the earth leads to the simplest explanation for each of the following: -- Coriolis effect (rotation of high- and low-pressure weather systems) -- apparent east-to-west motion of every astronomical object; sun, moon, planets, stars, etc. -- rotation of the Foucault pendulum -- intensity of meteor showers after local midnight vs. before local midnight

Electrical power sensors are used to measure characteristics of electric power such as voltage, current, power, and potential degradation of insulation due to age. For AC circuits, an electric power sensor can also be used to measure power quality. Some electrical power sensors are incorporated into transformers or other components of the power distribution grid. Others are added to existing systems. Typically, these electrical power sensors measure one or more physical characteristics and convert them…
Software has become a central part of a rapidly growing range of applications, products and services from all sectors of economic activity. Systems in which software interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people are called software-intensive systems. Examples include large-scale heterogeneous systems, embedded systems for automotive and avionics applications, telecommunications, wireless ad hoc systems, business applications with an emphasis on web services etc.
