SmartLive research project: How can the user experience of smart homes be improved?
The market for smart homes is more appealing than ever before, thanks to the increasing role of the Internet of Things as well as hardware that is getting smaller and cheaper all the time. There are nevertheless some major barriers to entering this market. Existing system solutions remain technologically complex and only partially address users’ actual needs. How can the user experience of smart homes be improved?
The SmartLive research project tackled this question and successfully identified several hurdles to market penetration. SmartLive is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Researchers examined the suitability of smart home systems for end users and developed potential new solutions, keeping the focus on end users and their needs at all times.

Anomaly detection in the IoT
One type of task that can be effectively tackled with data analysis is anomaly detection. Its goal is to find unusual behavior that differs significantly from what has been observed before or from what is expected. In this white paper, we describe our approach, highlight some observations made during various projects, and have a look at the components that a system for data analysis typically includes.
Real-world challenges in developing IoT solutions
A joint white paper by Bosch Software Innovations and PTC® provides IoT examples
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way many companies do business. Many traditional manufacturers are integrating their physical products with internet-based backend services, and internet companies are expanding their offerings by integrating data from sensors and physical assets. New companies are entering the market with IoT solutions that combine physical products with internet-based services. Sensor-generated data and machine learning solutions enable new, data-driven business models. All these players can benefit from fast and easy IoT solution development. To facilitate this, Bosch Software Innovations has teamed up with PTC® to deliver a joint offering described in the white paper.
IoT and big data
A joint white paper by Bosch Software Innovations and MongoDB on how to manage the large amounts of unstructured data in the IoT.
Our IoT platform, the Bosch IoT Suite, allows to connect distributed things and devices in order to provide applications for the Internet of Things, such as fleet management and predictive maintenance. In combination with MongoDB’s proven scalability and dynamic data model, this opens up the possibility to further unlock the potential of the IoT for customers around the globe.
No one can do I(o)T alone.
The IoT requires a major change in how established industries do business. We are convinced that the key to success lies in business and technology ecosystems, not individual players. But what does that actually involve? For more details, just take a look at our Open IoT infographic.
Bosch IoT Remote Manager as managed service
In this presentation, Sinisha Djukic, Director of Consulting Services at Bosch Software Innovations in Sofia (Bulgaria), gives an introduction on how the device management capabilities of the Bosch IoT Suite form the technological basis for MANN+HUMMEL’s IoT initiative.
Gateways in IoT scenarios
During the course of more than 150 IoT projects in different domains we detected several IoT patterns which also result in different approaches on how to connect devices. Many IoT solutions are hosted on a cloud environment. Often it is possible to connect devices directly to the backend system. However, for various scenarios there are some recommendations for connecting devices in a more indirect way via gateways. In this webcast, we have a look on real-world use cases in different domains. Moreover, we do a comparison between gateway- and non-gateway-based IoT solutions, and show the benefits of an open-standards based framework leveraging OSGi and Java technologies.
Anomaly Detection with event data in IoT
Today, devices generate more data than social networks. Each device can send data several times per second and with millions of connected devices, a typical data processing platform might be required to deal with billions of such incoming events every day. Even though processing this amount of data is obviously a considerable and by no means trivial technological challenge, it is clear that the device data itself – even when stored in a preprocessed form – is not something actionable. To get actionable insights, the collected data must be analyzed. One type of task that can be effectively tackled with data analysis is anomaly detection. Its goal is to find unusual behavior that differs significantly from what has been observed before or from what is expected.
