Context awareness

Devices may require dedicated setup or specific fine tuning to enhance performance and they are usually managed through the menu functions. However, now using MEMS these devices can sense the context it is in and react accordingly. For instance, users no longer need to switch on or off the ring tones manually on their phone. By simply placing the phone upside down the ringer can be switched off. Projectors can sense angles or positions and adjust the picture accordingly.

 

 

Alarms

Antitheft alarms based on MEMS accelerometers can detect movement in any desired access, protecting briefcases, laptops and other mobile hardware from unauthorized removal. Normal movements can easily be distinguished from suspect activity, minimizing false alarms.

 

 

Vibration monitoring

A MEMS acceleration sensor detects fine movements and controls them. This can be the case to monitor the movement for saving electricity or prevent damage caused by the vibration.
