A magnetometer is a type of sensor for determining the existence of a metallic object or objects in a field by measuring the strength and direction of magnetic magnetic fields around the sensor. Anything metallic moving through the space, or simply sitting there, is going to contort the fields. Several such sensors placed spatially can determine the precise size, shape, and location of these objects.

Very useful for augmented reality applications involving vehicles.
