Smart sensor: BHI360

Small. Programmable. Low-power.

Coming soon: BHI360

Programmable smart sensor combining accelerometer, gyroscope and fusion software

BHI360 is a programmable IMU-based sensor system combining a gyroscope with an accelerometer that enables full customization. The integrated sensor fusion library enables 3D audio with head orientation for personalized sound experiences as well as simple gesture recognition. It can be used in wearables and hearables, smartphones and tablets, smart devices and more.

The sensor is provided in a compact 20-pin LGA package measuring 2.5 x 3 x 0.95 mm³. This means it is 50% smaller than its previous generation, and that it is the smartest programmable IMU sensor in the market. BHI360 is a highly integrated, ultra-low power, smart 6-axis IMU consisting of a 32-bit programmable microcontroller. In addition, it consists of an ultra-low power microprocessor, including pre-installed sensor fusion software and algorithms in a single package.

Capturing the Moment - How smart sensors allow you to focus on the things that count

Capturing the moment and telling a story with a single image – that’s the passion of photographer Johannes Arnold. When searching for exciting subjects on the streets of Berlin, he has to fully focus on the surroundings and keep his hands free. This is made possible by his trusted companions: smart hearables. The built-in sensors from Bosch Sensortec allow users to make phone calls with ease and to operate smart devices by means of gestures or voice input.
