By interacting in this way they create what is known as the internet of things, bringing independent components together to form a new domain - and linking together different aspects of life such as energy, the home, mobility, and work. From
Sensors - software - business models
This new connectivity is based on sensors that record data from objects and electrical devices, passing it on via wireless internet connections. A dedicated software program analyzes and combines this data according to different criteria - and this data interplay gives rise to new business models. For instance, owners of electric vehicles can use an app to reserve a charge spot, while buildings can calculate their energy consumption autonomously and source the electricity they need from a range of suppliers in the most cost-efficient and sustainable way possible.
All components available
Bosch is a world leader when it comes to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors. Bosch Software Innovations' products have already proved their worth in 600 international projects. Wireless networks and energy-saving transmission technology are already widespread. For
Example of a Bosch application
Bosch has developed a telematics solution that is already helping insurers and leasing companies today,
Four key elements brought together
This application already brings together the four key elements of the connected world: cars (the physical assets), their drivers (private or commercial end users), an enterprise (the fleet operator), and an entire ecosystem of other parties that render the services (auto repair shops, insurers, and other service providers).
Driven by collaboration
'This interaction of sensors, software, and services is the basis of the internet of things,'
Bosch and the internet of things
Bosch is well positioned to meet this challenge. Bosch Software Innovations develops software and system solutions for the internet of things. Its core product is a software suite that delivers the technical underpinnings for the required networks, enabling companies to implement their new business models straight away. The focus is on fields such as connected mobility, connected energy, smart homes, and smart factories.
In addition, Bosch recently founded a separate company dedicated entirely to the internet of things.
Bosch has announced that it is to set up a consortium with ABB,
