Bosch’s Smart Home Vision:
Broadening Market Scope through One Single Platform

Smart home is one of Bosch’s promising business domains. Bosch has been making aggressive movements toward smart homes by introducing smart home solutions for home convenience, efficiency and security in 2015.

Five billion Bosch MEMS Sensors

Bosch provides sensors for a range of uses in the automotive and consumer electronics industries. For instance, MEMS sensors measure pressure, acceleration, rotary motion, mass flow, and the earth's magnetic field, and act as the sensory organs for cars or smart phones. Bosch has been producing these sensors for vehicles since 1995. A yaw-rate sensor that records the rotary moments around its vertical axis is at the heart of ESP, for example, and today each modern vehicle is home to up to 50 MEMS sensors.
