Thanks for the MEM-ories
Robert Bosch is the number one automotive supplier in the world. Bosch also announced that MEMS sensors have been used in automobiles for 20 years.
While it took 13 years to manufacture the first billion MEMS sensors, the Bosch Automotive Electronics division now manufactures the same quantity in less than one year at its production facility in Reutlingen, Germany where it produced the five-billionth MEMS sensor. More than four million sensors are currently manufactured every day.
