Next week, I will be influencing #LikeABosch as I accept an invitation from the company to attend Bosch ConnectedWorld 2019 (BCW19) in Berlin, Germany. This is one of the world’s largest international forums for the Internet of Things (IoT) and brings together the best minds to energize the co-creation of connected products and solutions invented for life.

The conference, the exhibition, the hackathon, and the many other networking and collaboration formats were designed to stimulate knowledge exchange, collaboration, and business opportunities. At this year’s Bosch ConnectedWorld forum around 5,000 participants will gather at the Berlin “Stationâ€Â venue to blend with more than 80 exhibitors. Together, they will demonstrate how the rapid development of the internet of things is creating new opportunities both work and one’s personal life. The gathering also features more than 150 speakers including Bosch CEO Volkmar Denner, Munich Re CEO Dr. Joachim Wenning, and Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, inventor of HTML and founder of the world wide web.

BCW19 is a mandatory event for any company or individual that wants to participate in the exploding IoT market. This broad term is used to describe the extension of the Internet connectivity physical devices and everyday objects. By embedding objects with computer processors, Internet connectivity, and advance software, these devices can be remotely monitored, and controlled to drive complex interactions over the Internet. BCW19 visitors will experience IoT capabilities for:

  • Connected Mobility: Delivering more safety, enjoyment, and efficiency for car drivers.
  • Connected Household: Reducing stress and provide more services around the home.
  • Connected Manufacturing: Gaining greater flexibility and transparency in business logistics; and
  • Connected Agriculture: Driving larger and better-quality yields in agricultural fields.

What You Can Expect To See

One of the most important purposes for someone attending this event is to open their minds to the true value IoT can deliver to society and an individual’s everyday life. Just being aware of the possibilities can stir discussions and collaborative efforts that often lead to global changes. Demonstrations attendees shouldn’t miss include:

  • Vivatar drive, that combined the Vivatar app with the Vivatar Telematics plug to act as a digital guardian angel for people on the go by making sure that help arrives quickly when called;
  • BSH Household appliances with Home Connect that provide extensive functionalities that make housework easier, safer, and more efficient;
  • The Bosch IoT cloud that can deliver software updates from the data cloud for industrial control units and in-car communication infrastructure that use modern encryption technologies. More than five million cars are being updated today over the air with Bosch IoT suite software;
  • Bosch Rexroth’s new ActiveShuttle, which can move 260 kg loads quickly and safely through production facilities, providing flexibility and transparency to intralogistics
  • ViPAS from Bosch, AI-based system equipped with a gripper arm, cutting-edge camera technology, and intelligent software for visual quality control that improves manufacturing quality and productivity;
  • 3D printing solutions for industrial applications from Bosch and BigRep that are helping to establish Automated additive manufacturing as an industrial production technology;
  • Smart spraying technologyfrom BASF and Bosch that uses camera sensors to distinguish between crops and weeds, enabling crop protection agents to target the weeds and protect the environment; and
  • Deepfield Connect tank guard that monitors a milk tank’s cooling, cleaning, or agitator systems. With this solution, data is relayed via the Bosch IoT cloud to a smartphone app to give farmers a remote, 24/7 overview of all the tank’s essential functions so that they can quickly respond to any failures or malfunctions.

Will I See You There?

Bosch ConnectedWorld 2019 is happening May 15-16, 2019 at one of the most amazing conference locations in Europe.
