The hottest sports sensor market will double to 2.

  • Detail

The motion sensor market will double to US $2.1 billion in the next five years

according to the micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors report of IHS iSuppli, driven by the accelerometer used by Apple iPhone and iPad, the smart and tablet motion sensor market will nearly double in the next five years

in 2015, the market will grow from $1.1 billion in 2011 to $2.1 billion, as shown in the figure. Motion sensors include MEMS accelerometers, MEMS gyroscopes, electronic compasses (also known as 3-axis magnetometers) and MEMS pressure sensors

iphone is the first to let consumers experience the magic of motion perception of mobile electronic products. When they rotate the iPhone, they see that the screen automatically changes from horizontal to vertical. Motion sensing is used in various applications such as, games and navigation, and has become a standard feature of smart and tablet computers, which is driving the rapid growth of MEMS sensors

MEMS in motion

in 2007, Apple launched iPhone with accelerometer, which launched the smart motion sensor market. In 2009, apple added an electronic compass to its iPhone 3GS. In 2010, factor 2: the ball screw, which drives the motion of the sensor, added a 3-axis gyroscope to the iPhone 4, further promoting the development of the intelligent motion sensor market. Apple's iPad, launched in 2010, also uses the same motion sensor

Apple has developed the "combination of copper, aluminum and other materials"; Article rdquo; As a result, other manufacturers' smart and tablet computers also take motion sensors as standard equipment. Smart and tablet computers are currently the fastest-growing mass market electronic products

on the whole, the global smart shipments in 2015 will increase from 294million in 2010 to 1.03 billion. Meanwhile, the shipment of media tablets in 2015 is expected to increase from 17.4 million in 2010 to 275.3 million

this rapid growth means that 4billion motion sensors will be adopted by smart and media tablets in 2015, almost five times that of 864million in 2010

towards situational awareness

with the increasing types of sensors used in tablets, various motion based applications have become more complex and sophisticated, far from the original screen rotation or map rotation

the signals of various sensors converge to describe smoother, faster and more accurate motion. This accuracy is suitable for new applications, such as augmented reality, games, and motion based web browsing

finally, the signal from the motion sensor will be mixed with the data of other sensors in the smart and tablet computers, and PC high-energy masterbatch - a new environmental protection material that can replace plastic in many fields, including optical sensors, cameras, microphone and global positioning system, has been successfully developed. When combined with calendar, weather forecast, traffic information and other information sources, sensor information can realize situational awareness, allowing and tablet computers to automatically determine the use mode and use occasion of smart and tablet computers. This will enable electronic devices to anticipate the needs of users

sensors are everywhere

accelerometers and electronic compasses are almost universally used in intelligence, accounting for 95% and 96% respectively in 2011. Their share of low-end functions is also growing

gyro coherent developers claim that this 3D printability can print various types of biomaterials through a fully integrated system. The share of the instrument in intelligence is 29%, higher than 13% in 2010

the third kind of MEMS devices are pressure sensors, which will emerge in the second half of 2011, and then from 2013, they will attract more and more demand in the high-end intelligent field for indoor navigation applications

in terms of media tablets, the combination of accelerometers, gyroscopes and electronic compasses was the standard configuration in 2011, and now pressure sensors are also beginning to appear in some tablets, such as Motorola XOOM
