Bosch's MM3.8 is part of the company's DRS MM3 generation of sensors, which allow several sensor elements to be individually combined and placed together in a cluster, on a printed circuit board within a single housing. The micromechanically fabricated elements measure angular velocity and linear acceleration. Bosch uses the flexible construction to allow detection of angular velocity for different paths of force within a vehicle. The cluster is suitable for such systems as electronic stability control and rollover prevention, as well as for "hill hold" control and active steering.

A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
