Bosch Sensortec Environmental Cluster (BSEC) Software v184.108.40.206 released on December, 18th 2023
The BSEC fusion library has been conceptualized to provide a higher-level signal processing and fusion for the BME688. The library receives compensated sensor values from the sensor API. It processes the BME688 signals to provide the requested sensor outputs.
- Selectivity to target gas classes
- Calculation of index for air quality (IAQ) level outside of the device
- Calculation of ambient air temperature outside of the device (e.g. phone)
- Calculation of ambient relative humidity outside of the device
- Indoor air quality
- Home automation and control
- Internet of things
- Weather forecast
- GPS enhancement (e.g. time-to-first-fix improvement, dead reckoning, slope detection)
- Indoor navigation (change of floor detection, elevator detection)
- Outdoor navigation, leisure and sports applications
- Vertical velocity indication (rise/sink speed)
- BSEC library is supported on 32, 16 and 8 bit MCU platforms
Available binaries for download:
|Cortex-M0+, M3, M4, M4_FPU, M33, M33_FPU
Note: The following libraries are not tested - M4 and M33
The library size information above doesn't include additional dependencies based on the embedded system project & platform.
For other platforms, please contact your local Bosch Sensortec representative
- Easy to integrate
- Hardware and software co-design for optimal performance
- Complete software fusion solution out of one hand
- Eliminates need for own fusion software development
- Robust virtual sensor outputs optimized for the application

basic.ino: This is an example for illustrating the basic BSEC virtual outputs.
basic_config_state.ino: This is an example for illustrating the BSEC feature using desired configuration setting.
bme68x_demo_sample.ino: This demonstrator application running on an x8 board has the feature of sensor data logging and BSEC algorithm illustration. Please refer BME688 Development Kit-Firmware-Quick-Start-Guide for installing dependent libraries and how to flash.
Note: Please ensure to use the bsec_interface_multi.h header file specifically, for demonstrating the multi instance feature
