MEMS Sensor Provides Accurate Car Control And Positioning

STMicroelectronics’ automotive-grade ASM330LHH six-axis inertial sensor boasts super-high-resolution motion tracking in advanced vehicle navigation and telematics applications. The sensor lets advanced dead-reckoning algorithms calculate precise position from sensor data if satellite signals are blocked. Its advanced, low-noise, temperature-stable design enables dependable telematics services such as e-tolling, tele-diagnostics, and e-Call assistance. Precision inertial data in six axes also meets the needs of advanced automated-driving systems.


Magneti Marelli has selected the ASM330LHH for advanced telematics systems, to be fitted as original equipment by global automotive groups in upcoming vehicle ranges. Engineering samples will be available for evaluation by Q3 2018, and volume production will begin the following quarter. Budgetary pricing starts at $5 each/1000 pieces.
