    Electronic systems are replacing mechanical parts to improve the safety and performance of the cars. However, the electronic components should be dependable, meaning they should be trusted to work properly over time. AMR sensors are widely used in automotive for angle measurements. Nevertheless, they are affected by performance degradation and catastrophic faults. Both should be handled to guarantee the correct operation of the sensor over time. This paper proposed two modules, fault-tolerant, and self-calibration. Results show they allow to improve the dependability of the sensor.
