Bosch “develops sensor-suite for air taxis”

Venturebeat reports that automotive systems manufacturer Bosch has launched a new “plug-and-play” sensor-box for air taxis and other flying vehicles. According to news reports: The sensor suite consists of microelectromechanical — or MEMS — acceleration sensors that record the aircraft’s movements, along with built-in yaw-rate sensors that track its angle of attack. Magnetic field sensors gauge compass headings, while pressure sensors — which measure altitude from barometric pressure — determine the vehicle’s current speed. According to Bosch, the sensor box’s chief advantages compared with conventional solutions are that it is lightweight and compact. That’s in part because it uses some of the same sensors found in the company’s automated driving and ESP anti-skid systems.”
