Bosch is fully committed to developing the world of connected, intelligent devices–a global market that Gartner predicts will reach US$1.9 trillion by 2020. Tapping into this enormous market at the 2014 International CES is no easy feat, but Bosch is designs and manufactures the worlds broadest portfolio of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), the building blocks of the IoTS. And it recently launched Connected Devices and Solutions, a new business unit that creates custom IoTS solutions.
Combining the Bosch MEMS sensor portfolio with low-power wireless networks, application-specific algorithms and Bosch´s electronics manufacturing technology, Connected Devices and Solutions provides consumers with seamless ways to monitor and interact with their environment.
Boschs IoTS demo gave CES attendees real-time readings about their surroundings via 27 wirelessly connected smart sensors that were strategically positioned around the booth. The smart sensor network uses tiny, intelligent MEMS sensors from Bosch Sensortec and Akustica to monitor and report sound, humidity, pressure, motion, light and temperature data from the booth–all of which is then displayed in an interactive 3D model.
