Welding and joining processes are one of the key processes in the automobile industries, which give the core strength to the joint and consequently to the vehicle. The complex design of the vehicle and small parts creates difficulty for the manual joining process and therefore the need for automation has increased. The manufacturing companies spend a lot of money on the equipment and processes to maintain the high quality of the vehicle. The sensors are integrated along with the equipment in the welding and joining processes to improve the quality and decrease the risk of damage associated with the process. This review starts with different types of welding methods and then focusses on the sensors and its types.
