To sense motion, sensors must be able to detect acceleration (either linear or angular), velocity and an object's position. This data is used in a variety of applications from detecting anomalous vibrations in an electrical motor for preventive maintenance, acceleration in an automotive ABS system, and even a player’s activity in a gaming console.

ST has the broadest offer of motion sensors including accelerometersgyroscopes and stand-alone magnetometers as well as eCompass combo solutions and 6- and 9-axis iNEMO® inertial measurement units (IMU) with more than 50% current reduction respect to closest competitor's device. Fabricated with our innovative MEMS silicon technologies, they all feature ultra-low power consumption, high-accuracy and stability over time and temperature variations.

In addition to a wide range of power management solutions and STM32 microcontrollers, we provide a comprehensive set of evaluation and development tools including software libraries to help engineers build a wide variety of motion sensing building blocks.
