Webinar: How sensing solutions help to fight against the spread of COVID-19

Did you know that humans breathe in more than 10,000 l / day and spend 90 % of their life in buildings? Indoor air quality strongly affects our health and well-being as well as the risk of virus infections via Aerosols, such as COVID-19. The BME680 sensor has been developed to detect exhaled human breath and outputs an index of air quality.

In this 45-minute on-demand webinar, we give you an overview of environmental sensing in relation to indoor air quality. You will see why and how sensing solutions help fight the spread of COVID-19.

Digital nose for air quality: Bosch Sensortec’s 4-in-1 gas sensor with AI

Whether at home, in the office or outdoors, we need to be confident that the air around us is clean and safe to breathe – COVID-19 has clearly highlighted the importance of air quality. Due to the particulates, gases and even airborne viruses ubiquitously present in our modern environment, poor air quality has an increasingly negative impact on our health and well-being. To address this growing need, Bosch Sensortec has announced the BME688, the first air quality MEMS sensor that combines gas, humidity, temperature and barometric pressure sensing with innovative artificial intelligence (AI) capability.

AI Fitness Tracker – Beating the "Corona-tine"

The world’s first self-learning AI sensor for wearables and hearables is based on Edge AI. Having an “edge” like that on your wrist makes your fitness tracker individually tailored to you and the way you move. With each movement it adjusts itself. The sensor provides more reliable analytics and reduces the need for data storage space, eliminating data transmission to the cloud. Keeping you in control of your data. Melena and Geoff learn from product manager Kaustubh Gandhi and research scientist Thomas Nilsson what went into the development of this new approach to fitness trackers.

Making a splash: Bosch launches a robust barometric pressure sensor

Wearable fitness trackers are rapidly growing in popularity. A barometric pressure sensor enables the wearable to detect changes in the user’s elevation, for example when walking up or down stairs, for calculating the number of calories that the user is burning. Until now, many barometric pressure sensors have not been resistant against liquids and thus it has been challenging to integrate them into waterproof products. To address this issue, Bosch Sensortec developed the BMP384, a robust barometric pressure sensor delivering market-leading accuracy in a compact package.

Air Quality COVID

How sensing solutions help to fight against the spread of COVID-19

Covid-19 quickly became a worldwide pandemic because of the virus's ability to easily spread from person to person. To reduce the risk of infection, it is important to keep the indoor concentration of exhaled breath as low as possible. This means: rooms need to be ventilated whenever the concentration of exhaled air increases significantly, and to ventilate them correctly.

MEMS: with all (technical) senses

What is smaller than the nail of your little finger, has artificial intelligence in it, and can analyze the air in a room and tell you to open the window when there are too many aerosols floating around? The answer: Microelectromechanical systems – MEMS for short. In this podcast episode, the hosts are talking to Bosch experts Emma Abel and Richard Fix to learn about the latest fields of application for MEMS.

Sensors get clever: AI revolutionizes fitness tracking

Squats, crunches or kettlebell swings: The list of fitness exercises available nowadays is almost endless. Many fitness trackers or smartwatches, however, offer only a very limited number of activities that can be tracked and do not recognize activities reliably due to different performance styles, equipment, heights and energy levels of users.

Me, myself and AI

Fitness tracking is presently experiencing a huge upswing in popularity. The market for fitness trackers and step counters has surged by 65% year-on-year, with just the Fitbit platform alone claiming nearly 30 million active users. Current activity tracking devices have demonstrated the huge market potential of this segment and have laid the groundwork for next-generation AI-enabled devices to take centre stage as individual fitness tracking goes mainstream.
