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.†
