App note: Using a magnetic 3D sensor in a gear stick application
6 hall effect sensors effectively replaced by one 3D sensor, an application from Infineon Technologies. Link here (PDF)
A magnetic 3D sensor is well suitable for a detection of the position of the gear stick. The „State-of-the-art“ solution with up to 6 single hall switches can be replaced by one 3D sensor. The TLE493D-W1B6 has the same package dimensions as a hall switch and leads to cost and space savings.
