Sensing solutions for gaming applications & toys

Gaming applications and toys

Users' key criterion for purchasing gaming and toy devices is user friendliness, which is the basis to ensure a good user experience. Ease of use can be achieved through precise menu navigation, gesture control and real-time motion tracking. Furthermore, different features such as orientation, tilt detection, and balance enhance fun and entertainment. Bosch Sensortec is offering a broad portfolio of highly accurate sensors with integrated features for gaming applications and toys.

Manufacturers therefore can optimize their devices by enabling reliable tilt detection, optimized motion and head movement tracking and also flight control when it comes to flying objects. Bosch Sensortec is offering a broad portfolio of highly accurate sensors for such devices. Since the aspect of user experience is also significantly important in these fields, users don't want to get disturbed by having to charge their devices very frequently. This can be avoided by using sensors with ultra-low power consumption that notice e.g. automatically when they have to turn on, off or switch in stand-by mode.
