Award-winning  Internet-of-Things application leverages best-in-class accelerometer
Geneva, Switzerland, Feb. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, the world's top MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) manufacturer and the leading supplier of MEMS for devices for consumer and mobile applications  , today announced that its accelerometer is helping to track motion in the innovative Mother and Motion Cookies from Sen.se, a designer of smart connected devices for the Internet of Things.
Sen.se's Mother is a caring, adaptable, and programmable device that instantly turns objects into smart and understanding things. Sen.se Mother is the head of a family of as many as 24 small connected sensors - the Motion Cookies - that blend into your daily life to make it more serene, healthy, and pleasurable.Motion Cookies, the first essential members of the ever-growing Mother family, use an ST ultra-low-power, high-performance "nano" LIS3DH accelerometer to detect and understand the movements of objects and send the data to the Mother. The small and slick Motion Cookies, which can be attached to almost anything, leverage the smart embedded functions and advanced power saving of ST's accelerometer. The result: Sen.se's ultra-efficient Motion Cookies can store 10 days' worth of data when they are away from the Mother, and have a battery life of a year, or several months in mobility. ST, the one-stop MEMS supplier of choice  , has its MEMS sensors enabling motion-activated user interfaces in many popular consumer smart devices, with leadership in all major mobile operating systems. rafi Haladjian, CEO, Sen.se declared, "This new generation of multipurpose smart sensors demonstrate how Sen.se can augment traditional industries to easily imagine, experiment and manufacture new products enhanced with new digital services."
