Prototyping platforms for any IoT use case

Day 2 - 11th Dec 10:30-12:20 Europa hall (6th Floor) Novice Dr. Pavlin Dobrev, Kai Hackbarth, Dimitar Krastev, Martin Tsarev

Internet of Things is becoming the heart of more and more projects. Each IoT project starts with a PoC prototype. This workshop will walk you through what a prototyping platform is and how it impacts the development of a project. Using the Bosch XDK, we will go through what such a board offers as sensors, connectivity, functionality and extensions and interesting examples from the real world. Bosch and Zuhlke developed the platform to encourage community development and open source coding thus we will see some live coding on the stop.

Internet of Connected Everything

Day 1 - 10th Dec 11:40-12:30 Main Hall #Influencers Dr. Pavlin Dobrev, Kai Hackbarth

Connectivity is transforming all kind of domains – not just smart homes but also industry, buildings, agriculture and mobility. IoT has finally reached the corporate sector and is now being increasingly commercialized. As predicted Bosch alone already has more than 50 million of connected devices! . In 2025 all our products either possess intelligence themselves, or AI will have played a key role in their creation.  In their keynote address, Dr. Pavlin Dobrev and Kai Hackbarth traces Bosch’s evolution to an IoT company.  We will dive into the reference architecture for IoT domains like connected building, retail, smart architecture. For Bosch, Things are the most essential part in IoT. We design them to the requirements of IoT: Aware, Autonomous and Actionable.

Key findings:

  • Bosch transformation from a traditional manufacturer to an IoT and high-tech company: Challenge accepted
  • Innovation is part of our DNA
  • Bosch embraces sustainability:  climate neutrality worldwide by 2020 and new solutions for better air in cities
  • Nobody can do IoT alone: IoT platforms, software, and developers
  • The impact of open source and agile organization
