The In­ter­net of Things (IoT) and wear­able con­sumer prod­ucts will be key to Bosch Sen­sortec’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ments, said Stefan Finkbeiner, CEO and gen­eral man­ager of Bosch Sen­sortec, at the re­cently con­cluded Elec­tron­ica China 2016.

The Ger­many-based com­pany, which is wholly-owned by Bosch, ex­hib­ited seven new prod­ucts at the March 15-17 event, one of the lead­ing trade shows for elec­tronic com­po­nents, sys­tems and ap­pli­ca­tions in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion. The of­fer­ings in­cluded vi­tal sen­sor hubs, in­tel­li­gent ac­celerom­e­ters, high per­for­mance gy­ro­scopes and cus­tom pro­gram­mable 9-axis mo­tion sen­sors.

The new sen­sors are de­signed spe­cially for sen­soren­abled wear­able ap­pli­ca­tions such as fit­ness wrist­bands, ear­phones and smart tex­tiles, while the high-per­for­mance in­tel­li­gent ac­celerom­e­ter can be used in ar­eas such as gam­ing, im­mer­sive ac­tiv­ity-track­ing and ap­pli­ca­tions for aug­mented re­al­ity, vir­tual re­al­ity and im­age sta­bi­liza­tion.

“The vi­tal sen­sor hubs would op­ti­mize the whole ecosys­tem of the cur­rent wear­able in­dus­try and they would greatly fa­cil­i­tate Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers’ in­no­va­tive ca­pa­bil­i­ties and speed, pro­vid­ing them with more pos­si­bil­i­ties when de­vel­op­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions,” said Yan­ick Yan, head of prod­uct mar­ket­ing and busi­ness devel­op­ment at Greater China Bosch Sen­sortec.
