Hillcrest Labs and Bosch Sensortec Collaborate on Sensor Hub Solution for Head-Mounted Displays and Wearable Devices
Mar 6 14
Hillcrest Labs and Bosch Sensortec announced a partnership to launch a new sensor solution for head-mounted displays (HMDs). The BNO070 solution includes Hillcrest's SH-1 sensor hub software running on Bosch Sensortec's 9-axis system in package (SiP), which features an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and a 32-bit microcontroller in a single package. The solution is optimized for the HMD market, and can be customized for other wearable computing applications. Hillcrest and Bosch Sensortec will begin sampling the new BNO070 to key development partners in mid-2014. The BNO070 will enable motion control, pedometer, compass, gesture recognition, and context awareness for augmented reality, virtual reality, gaming, and navigation applications on HMDs. The low power consumption and compact size -- 5.2 x 3.8 x 1.1 mm(3) -- make the BNO070 ideal for wearable devices, where both power and space are limited. The pre-integrated solution eases system integration, provides faster time to market, and reduces customer development costs for adding advanced sensor-based functionality to a wide array of devices.
