Digital authentication for art and luxury items
For centuries, works of art and cultural artifacts have been counterfeited, stolen, or exchanged. They range from antiques to paintings and sculptures. While longevity and nostalgia increase the desire for old objects for many people, even forgers who have been exposed in major scandals have not revealed how many of their fakes are actually in circulation.
Independent cybersecurity platform Bosch CyberCompare
Bosch CyberCompare is set to make its mark at this year’s International Cyber Expo later this month revealing its new platform.
Sensor tech #LikeABosch: new robust barometric pressure sensor
Barometric pressure sensors are a key component in fitness tracking wearables and other applications, enabling altitude to be accurately determined.
Particulate matter sensor revolutionises air quality measurement
Clean air is fundamental to our health and well-being. Today, people typically spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, which has a negative long-term impact on health because indoor air is three to five times more polluted than in the outdoor environment in most parts of the world.
Bosch at CES 2023: smart sensor system
Today’s consumers want portable and smart devices that have high performance and a full set of features, yet provide a long battery life. For product designers, this means making difficult decisions to minimize power consumption without affecting the user experience.
Sensor tech #LikeABosch: always on the right track thanks to a micro-sized digital pathfinder
For any portable device, other motion sensors may tell you where you are and how fast you’re moving, but to find out which direction you’re pointing you need a reliable magnetometer.
Pioneering work for the ‘Internet of Voice’
The Internet of tomorrow will be mobile, and audio based. To support the shift in communication from typing and reading to speaking and listening, new technologies are needed that enable audio and voice-based consumer applications.

Bosch barometric pressure sensor for accuracy
Bosch Sensortec introduces the BMP581, a barometric pressure sensor that couples low power consumption with extreme accuracy to provide altitude tracking in wearables, hearables or IoT devices. This capability makes it ideal for applications such as fitness tracking, fall detection, indoor localisation and navigation, enabling new use cases that were previously impossible.
Bosch sensor evaluation board accelerates development
The newly launched Application Board 3.0 provides a versatile development solution that makes it quick and easy for engineers to work with all Bosch Sensortec sensors on one common platform. The new board simplifies the evaluation and prototyping of sensors for a wide range of applications, particularly in Industry 4.0, IoT, Smart Home systems, and wrist- and head-mounted wearables.
Making a splash: robust barometric pressure sensors
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.
Sensors get clever: AI revolutionises fitness trackers
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 recognise activities reliably due to different performance styles, equipment, heights and energy levels of users.
Bosch longevity programme for IoT applications
Bosch Sensortec has announced that it is launching a longevity programme and expanding its product portfolio to meet the specific needs of industrial and IoT applications. By ensuring products will be available for ten years, this new programme aims to give customers peace of mind, as well as access to high-performance, robust sensors, and increased purchasing flexibility due to smaller reel sizes.
