    All of Bosch Sensortec sensors datasheets contain a legal disclaimer which stipulates that "[Bosch Sensortec Products] are not designed or approved for use in military applications, life-support appliances, safety-critical automotive applications and devices or systems where malfunctions of these products can reasonably be expected to result in personal injury."

    Therefore, it is allowed to use Bosch Sensortec products in vehicles, but not in part of a system which in which a sensor failure could be harmful, such as traction control systems, airbag systems, autonomous driving systems, etc.
    Bosch Sensortec products are not AEC-Q100 qualified. For automotive applications, please contact your local sales office for Bosch Automotive MEMS sensors. You can find your local office here.

    However, Bosch Sensortec products can be used in a wide array of other applications in vehicles, such as : Driver navigation assistance, cabin air quality measurements, motion tracking for logging purposes, GNSS (e.g. GPS or GLONASS) performance enhancements, driving behavior monitoring, etc.
