Bosch has set up a new company,
From vehicles and smart phones to containers and machines by 2015 more than six billion things will be connected to the internet. Entirely new services will emerge that will transform people s everyday lives and open up huge new business opportunities. These services will rely on the smart networking of devices within wider systems, says Dr.
Tiny components of the connected world Tiny MEMS sensors with their microscopically fine structures can be used to measure acceleration, air pressure, the earth s magnetic field, yaw rate, noise, or temperature. The sensors can be intelligently programmed using software algorithms and equipped with microcontrollers, miniature batteries, and tiny radio chips, enabling them to process measurement data and send it over the internet to other devices, such as a user s smart phone. In principle, this makes it possible to bring all the things that people use in their everyday lives online, gradually merging together the real and virtual worlds.
Building on many years of expertise in electronics and sensor technology More than almost any other company, Bosch can draw on many years of expertise in the development and manufacture of electronics and sensor technology. As the world s largest supplier of MEMS sensors in terms of sales revenue, Bosch produces more than one billion micromechanical sensors a year for the automotive and consumer electronics markets.
