Bosch Showcases Technology "Invented for life" at 2013 International CES

Products featured make life connected, convenient and sustainable for consumers

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Bosch highlights products that enhance consumers' quality of life at 2013 International CES
  • Home-themed exhibit (booth #21322) shows innovative Bosch products made for any consumer environment
  • Bosch will host a press conference, Jan. 7, at 8 a.m., and technology demonstrations, Jan. 8 and 9 in the booth

For more than 125 years, Bosch has been committed to providing trusted products that enhance quality of life. At the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, Nev., 10 divisions representing Bosch's four business sectors – Automotive Technology, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods, and Energy and Building Technology – will come together to present key innovations and products, all of which are "Invented for life."

"At Bosch, we measure success in our ability to continuously improve our products and technologies to meet the needs of consumers everywhere," said Dr. Werner Struth, chairman of Robert Bosch LLC and member of the Board of Management of Robert Bosch GmbH. "CES provides the perfect opportunity for us to showcase how we meet and even exceed expectations in three key areas – connectivity, convenience and sustainability. We offer a full suite of products that benefit consumers, save them time and money, and help protect the environment. Several of the divisions will hold product demonstrations featuring some of their key technologies." 

Connectivity
As technology advances, consumers' desire to have all devices connected increases. From cell phones to tablets to computers, consumers want to access information from virtually any device at any time, such as while driving, at work or when out socializing with friends. Bosch has been and will continue to create innovative products that connect users to its trusted products. One "connected" product featured at CES will be Bosch Security Systems' new B Series alarm system that keeps the home protected, and can be operated from a smart phone or tablet. Owners of the system can arm or disarm the system and control monitored devices easily from any remote location. Bosch works to make information accessible in any environment, connecting consumers to their products and easing many of life's simple frustrations.  

Another environment in which Bosch has seen a high demand for connectivity is the automobile. Bosch Car Multimedia will be featuring its technologies that connect a mobile device to a vehicle as well as communicating using natural language voice recognition – with many solutions delivered through open-source software.

Convenience
Bosch's products are developed and designed to make the lives of consumers easier, more efficient and safer. By creating products that save time, energy and money, Bosch provides consumers with the trusted products they expect, and with the improved convenience they desire.

Bosch's CORE power tools, for example, are some of the most advanced on the market. Each tool provides up to 30 percent more power and runs up to 65 percent longer than existing tools in their class. In addition, quick-change bits allow for increased functionality. With these features, and the built-in intelligent electronic protection, Bosch makes it faster, more efficient and overall easier for users of its professional-grade tools.

In addition to power tools, Bosch is helping drivers get where they want to go in a safe and convenient way. Bosch's Chassis Systems Control division will be featuring important safety and driver assistance technologies, including lane change assist, predictive emergency braking and driver drowsiness detection.

Through products like these, Bosch can help to elevate quality of life for its consumers.

Sustainability
Robert Bosch, founder of the company, resolved to make the world a better place. Today, that means making life better for consumers, but also leading a sustainable, environmentally friendly lifestyle. More resources are dedicated each year to research and development for technologies that improve energy, conserve resources and protect the environment.

Bosch Solar Energy recently introduced its Generation IV, 60-cell monocrystalline solar panel, with higher efficiency and better conversion rates to maximize the power output on consumers' rooftops. Whether it's for home or office, Bosch Solar Energy supplies the proven products consumers want for their energy needs. The division also initiated a program to help consumers finance the cost of some of the technology recently introduced, further encouraging the importance of investing in solar energy and green living.

"As a global leader in innovative technologies and services across a wide range of industries, Bosch prides itself in its commitment to research and development," said Struth. "We are committed to providing the highest quality, but also continuous improvement of current technologies. With $5.8 billion going toward research and development efforts worldwide in 2011, Bosch seeks to provide the next advancement in technology that will best serve our consumers and help them lead more connected, convenient and sustainable lives."

Bosch will host a press conference on Jan. 7, 2013, at 8 a.m. in Banyan A-B, level three, Mandalay Bay, where Struth will discuss Bosch's presence at CES, its key products and the importance of connectivity, convenience and sustainability.

Additionally, Klaus Meder, president, Bosch Automotive Electronics, will deliver the MEMS Conference keynote address on Jan. 8, 2013, at 9:15 a.m. in the Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, N264.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
