BOSCH: Automotive Equipment – New generation of ESP® sensors

Bosch sensor now measures yaw rate and acceleration simultaneously SMI540: Two sensor elements in one housing
· Monoaxial yaw sensor combined with biaxial, linear acceleration sensor
· First micromechanical sensor that simultaneously measures yaw rate and acceleration in SOIC16x housing
· Tilt measurement along the vehicle’s longitudinal axis makes new applications possible
The Bosch SMI540 is the world’s first micromechanical inertial measurement unit for vehicle dynamics control in low-cost SOIC16w housing. The unit opens up new development possibilities for the ESP® electronic stability program. The 3-D sensor simultaneously monitors three of a vehicle’s movement axes – two acceleration or inclination axes (ax, ay), and one axis of rotation (Ωz). Until now, at least two separate sensors were required for …
