New inertial sensor for navigation SMI230
New combined inertial sensor for navigation systems
Munich and Reutlingen, Germany: New MEMS sensor from Bosch helps to keep on track even under poor GPS signal conditions
The loss of a GPS signal has brought many relaxing car trips to an abrupt end.
At Munich's world-renowned electronics exhibition: electronica, Bosch today announced the new SMI230 six-axis inertial sensor.
With this sensor onboard, navigation systems will not take their eye off the destination – even when the GPS signal is interrupted. The SMI230 from Bosch provides the navigation system with motion data, enabling the current position of the travelling vehicle to be determined even when the GPS signal is weak or nonexistent. Navigation systems will become even more precise and reliable.
