Applications of a constant flux magnetostrictive impact sensor as an engine mount energy harvester and side impact sensor are presented and their operation is discussed. An optimization method is developed and appropriate objective functions are created for each application. Optimization results are presented including a power output increase of the engine mount energy harvester of 65% and a decrease in response time of the side impact sensor to impact events while also decreasing sensor output to non-impact events.
