Parcel drop detection with ScioSense’s ENS220

Are you sick of goods being damaged in transit or on delivery? ScioSense has you covered with an ultra-low-power pressure sensor that can detect centimetre-level changes in altitude and so much more…

What better way to start our full coverage of Embedded World than with the interviews conducted on the ipXchange booth, featuring our official partners for 2024! Let’s begin with ScioSense, who went all-out with fun and engaging demos that show the ENS220 in action.

The first demonstration illustrates the high accuracy and sample rate (up to 1 kHz) of the ENS220 for fall detection workloads. As Fabrizio explains, a reference design that features the ENS220 has been strapped to a typical package for monitoring during a simulated delivery.

When the package is dropped, an algorithm detects the fall event and calculates the height of the fall before showing it on a display. Thanks to the ultra-low power consumption and compact size of the device (2.0 x 2.0 x 0.75 mm), the ENS220 looks to be a great fit for asset tracking and tamper detection, possibly even running on harvested ambient energy!

Next, Fabrizio shows us a scaled-down version of ScioSense’s signature balloon demo – see the link to the full-size setup below. In this case, there is an ENS220 in the base unit, and another in the balloon, enabling height measurements between the units with centimetre-level accuracy. Not only that, the ENS220 features a built-in temperature sensor; this measurement is displayed as part of the GUI for the demo.

In fact, the ENS220 is a 3-in-1 device for high accuracy absolute pressure, relative pressure, and temperature sensing, making it a great solution for engineers requiring multiple environmental sensors in the most compact designs.

Discover the detailed specifications of this state-of-the-art device by following the link to the board page below. There, you can apply to evaluate this technology for use in your commercial projects and learn more about these reference designs.

Keep designing!
