Turn our competencies into your success
Convince yourself of our expertise in a multitude of fields relevant to the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Connected Logistics and Mobility. Our sophisticated devices are the key to your success.
Bosch is the world market leader in MEMS
With over 7 billion MEMS sensors sold since 1993, Bosch is the market leader in manufacturing sensors for automotive systems and consumer devices. Our broad sensor portfolio includes small, low-power inertial and environmental sensors. We offer high-volume availability and cost-efficiency.
As of now, Bosch manufactures 4 million sensors a day. In addition, we have a comprehensive sensor roadmap to address new physical measures in the upcoming years. Since MEMS sensors are one of the key technologies in digitalization, we have a head start in the race in the world of IoT.
Energy-efficient IoT devices with smart algorithms
IoT products are usually battery-powered and should last for years with a single battery. Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions has the competence to select the right components (systems engineering) to make the battery of your Internet of Things products last. Smart algorithms are the key software component to determine the operation strategy of the device and hence the possible duty cycle. These algorithms are responsible for converting raw sensor signals into relevant events.
Design for reliability
Product reliability, cost-efficiency and a long product lifetime are crucial for connected devices. Therefore, we focus on these attributes. Due to our long term automotive experience we can develop and manufacture reliable IoT solutions even for harsh environments.
Continuous reliability testing during the design process in the Bosch Environmental and Reliability Test Labs ensure a product that perfectly matches your expectations.
Cloud connectivity experience
Our involvement in a multitude of projects has given us the chance to gather experience on different cloud connectivity models and API designs. Three choices on the backend are open to you:
• An existing, cloud-based backend with third-party interfaces to which we connect.
• A third-party backend, developed parallel to device development. Here, we collaborate on interface definition and requirements.
• A backend developed by Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions, allowing us to develop the device and backend solution in conjunction (e.g. TDL with TDL backend).
Additionally, we provide expertise in building blocks available for a wide range of state-of-the-art protocols such as LWM2M, MQTT, HTTP.
IoT security is our strength
Security is claimed to be one of the most challenging topics in IoT. And we took it! We focus on state-of-the-art security technologies and risk-appropriate implementation. This is how we protect data and services against unauthorized access or misuse. We prove our concepts by objective penetration tests.
When it comes to end-to-end encryption and data security concepts, Bosch returns to its security expertise in facilitating its own and 3rd party cloud services for you. Secure firmware updates over the air are standard procedures on a hardware level.
Wireless connectivity for any application
You can benefit from our holistic know-how in the fields of communication and wireless connectivity. This covers all common cellular radio standards and technologies like Bluetooth®, WiFi (IEEE802.11.x), LoRa and Sigfox.
Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions offers star and mesh communication network topologies, and tailors them perfectly to your application.
Long Range Wide Area Network
Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) is a wireless communication technology, enabling low power, long range (up to 10 km), bi-directional, and secure communication. Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions is a member of the LoRa Alliance, an open, non-profit association of members, who believe that the Internet of Things era is right now. Benefit from our expertise in the conception, development and industrialization of LoRa end devices. Not only that, but our system knowledge also includes a gateway, and the LoRa network manager.
With our efficient platform concept, we make functionality ready for re-use when introducing it in your project. For software developers, it's easy to adapt to different hardware requirements. This accelerates your product development cycle and makes your life easier.
The platform-based approach enables a broad variety of cross domain applications.
Due to the modular software, complexity can be reduced and processes run in parallel. We focus on guaranteed product quality with common guidelines and a staged testing approach.
Ingenuity in radio frequency
Due to our long-term experience in radio frequency design, we can offer you high-performance yet cost-efficient solutions with optimized time until launch. In addition, we offer complete support throughout the entire development cycle: Your products are verified by us at an early stage through electromagnetic simulations and 3D measurements to tailor them to your specific needs. We strongly support you in terms of worldwide frequency regulation and standardization.
