SmartBug is a small wireless multi-sensor module designed for a plethora of IoT applications today. It combines TDK’s best technology including an inertial measurement unit, magnetometer, pressure sensor, temperature sensor, ultrasonic sensor, passive components, and high-precision algorithms to create a one-size-fits-all solution for IoT applications.
From a simple door to an industrial robot, this out-of-the-box sensor solution from TDK can be used to monitor “anything” accurately and remotely via BLE and WiFi. The module also provides autonomous SD card logging for applications that require lots of data to derive real value. Stick the module to any object to be monitored and you not only get accurate data from TDK’s sensors but also meaningful insights from its algorithms.
A unique feature of this module is the provision of IoT sensor algorithm outputs with customized tuning parameters. Some popular IoT algorithms currently covered by the module include door open/close, dynamic heading of a robotic vacuum, asset monitoring, patient activity monitoring, HVAC filter monitoring, and air mouse monitoring.
The Internet of Things market is growing at a historically fast pace. Sensors are the center of this incredible growth as they are key elements for gathering and outputting valuable data. Furthermore, sensors will enable connected devices to behave autonomously by being contextually aware of their environment and thus able to make their own intelligent decisions.
InvenSense is uniquely positioned as the leading provider of the MEMS inertial sensors, microphones, software algorithms, sensor development tool and platforms needed for the product creation and sensor integration in IoT connected devices.
