Bosch at the Sensors Expo & Conference in Rosemont, IL, USA,
Building the internet of things and services one sensor at a time
Bosch is helping to build the internet of things and services one sensor at a time. In the future, many objects will report their status over the internet, and this makes a range of new functions and business models possible. At the Sensors Expo & Conference in Rosemont, IL, USA, Bosch will be presenting its broad range of tiny building blocks for connected living, along with possible applications.
Technology leading MEMS portfolio for automotive and consumer electronics
Bosch supplies MEMS sensors for a wide range of applications in the automotive and consumer electronics industries. Bosch has been at the forefront of MEMS technology since it first emerged, and today it generates more sales in this market than any other supplier. Since the start of production in 1995, the company has manufactured more than 3 billion MEMS sensors. In 2013, 1 billion sensors emerged from its state-of-the-art wafer fab in Reutlingen, Germany – or 3 million each working day. Today, sensors from Bosch Sensortec can already be found in every other smart phone worldwide.
New low power IMU will help usher in a new era of always-on applications
Bosch Sensortec will launch a new Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) designed for high precision, always-on applications in smart phones, tablets, wearable devices, remote controls, game controllers, head-mounted devices and toys. Current battery limitations in such devices are restricting the adoption of more sophisticated applications which need to be continuously powered. With its industry´s lowest current consumption, the new IMU makes a significant contribution to overcoming this hurdle.
Next generation HD voice microphones enable voice as a user-interface in mobile devices
Designed to meet the size-performance constraints of smart phones and even the smallest wearables, Akustica’s new HD voice microphones combine small footprint, high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), tight sensitivity matching, and a super-wideband frequency response to improve intelligibility and speech-recognition accuracy in consumer electronic devices.
Smart Sensor Network Demonstration in Booth 302
At the Sensors Expo, Bosch will be presenting how MEMS sensors are a key enabler of the Internet of Things and Services. A network of wireless sensors will constantly gather and report information about the immediate environment. Visitors can learn which doors are open or closed, how loud it is, and how the temperature, air pressure, and humidity at various points around the booth changed over the course of the day.
