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.

Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
