Ready-to-use sensor solutions with high precision that enable simple and effortless user interactions with all kinds of smart devices
At Infineon, we develop sensor solutions that enable simple, effortless, and convenient user experiences with all kinds of smart devices. So that the technology around us makes life easier for us, and that we can focus on what really matters in life.
If we take a look at the human sensory system, we receive information about the world around us from our senses - sometimes from one of them, mostly from a few. Our senses rarely act separately. And even though we are not always aware of it, the crosstalk between them is constant. For most sensory experiences our brain combines information from multiple sensory systems. With technology, this process is called sensor fusion.
We have developed first use cases with a holistic approach that combines several smart senses into coherent intelligent systems. This enables us to turn several complex technical processes into one simple solution. To achieve this, different sensors complement each other to gain and process situational data. This contextual awareness allows things to finally detect and understand their surroundings and to respond to human gestures and voice commands like never before. This is paving the way for more natural experiences for users on the one hand, and for more process efficiency for the industry on the other. In the future, Infineon won’t be a single sensor chip supplier only, but also a solution provider. Thinking in solutions and systems, we bring sensors, power supply, controller, and connectivity together accompanied by the dedicated software.

Intuitive sensing – XENSIV™ sensors give "human" senses to "things"
Sensors allow smart devices and robots to see, hear, feel and intuitively “understand” their surroundings. These sensing capabilities enable humans to interact with smart devices in a more natural and seamless way than ever before. They are also making it possible for robots to increasingly see, hear, feel and interact like humans. Here at Infineon, we are delivering the intuitive sensing innovations that are slowly blurring the technology lines between humans and smart devices.
How semiconductors empower technology with the five human senses
Infineon´s XENSIV™ portfolio includes sensors, that give your application a smart feel, a smart taste, a smart eye, a smart nose and a smart ear. Andreas Urschitz, Division President at Infineon, explains how Infineon is connecting the real and the digital worlds.
