Please find below an overview with the research topics at the Bosch IoT Lab:
- Comfy: Security Meets Light
Already today, the Internet eases our everyday life. It helps us to get connected, to work efficiently and to stay informed. Tomorrow, the Internet will make our homes more comfortable, secure and energy-saving.
Large amounts of energy are wasted because heating systems run round-the-clock even though residents are out or occupy only a small part of their home. Major reasons for this behaviour are the non-intuitive heating controls and missing direct feedback about the heating activity or even energy consumption.
- Quantified Art
Indoor room-climate influences our everyday life. Regardless, we don´t control our room climate in an effective way, although we would be better off doing so. Quantified Art introduces a radically new user interface. The system is an informative art system, equipped with standard room climate sensors for temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide. A display embedded in a standard art frame presents the current room climate on the basis of classical art. Changing room conditions are reflected in modifications to the painting in real-time. This allows users to control and manage their room climate more effective.
- Connected Car
With this project we want to discover the possibilities of the connected car.
In a first step we want to know what information we can get out of the car at what costs. With this information we’ll try to solve everyday-life problems of car users and make them better drivers.
- E-Bike Business Model
New German tax legislation puts a new spin on establishing the eBike as a central means of transportation: Company eBikes are treated the same as company cars as they too are tax-deductible.
- IoT Platforms
We investigate into success factors for Internet of Things platforms.
- IoT Business Models
Building on the St. Gallen Business Model Navigator we research the influence of the IoT on Business Models.
