$250B ECON­OMY OF WEB-CON­NECTED DE­VICES

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Lifestyle -

COM­PA­NIES such as Bosch, Asus, Hisense, Hyundai, In­tel, LG, Pana­sonic, Qual­comm, Sam­sung, Sony, TCL and Toy­ota have show­cased their new prod­ucts and ser­vices for the first time at CES 2019. Bosch is pre­sent­ing its ad­vance­ments on the sub­jects of in­ter­net of things and ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence as well as its net­work-re­lated so­lu­tions at CES 2019, in Las Ve­gas. Some of the many so­lu­tions Bosch is show­cas­ing at the world’s largest con­sumer elec­tron­ics con­ven­tion are a con­cept ser­vice ve­hi­cle that makes a new kind of mo­bil­ity pos­si­ble and smart re­frig­er­a­tors con­nected to the web that can pro­vide ad­vice on how best to store dif­fer­ent kinds of food.

Mem­ber of the Bosch board of di­rec­tors Markus Heyn, stated that they believe net­work-con­nected de­vices will cre­ate a $250 bil­lion econ­omy by 2020, and said the com­pany’s aim in 2019 is to make net­work-con­nected de­vices more se­cure, ef­fi­cient and use­ful for cus­tomers.

230 MIL­LION HOMES WILL BE CON­NECTED TO WEB

Markus Heyn stated that they ex­pect the num­ber of smart homes con­nected to the in­ter­net to reach 230 mil­lion by 2020. The ra­tio of homes with in­ter­net is ex­pected to reach 15 per­cent. Em­pha­siz­ing that half of all smart­phones be­ing used to­day are car­ry­ing sen­sors pro­duced by Bosch, Markus Heyn gave an ex­am­ple us­ing a video-based fire de­tec­tion sys­tem: “Se­cu­rity cam­eras us­ing smart visual anal­y­sis will be able to de­tect fires within sec­onds, be­fore heat and smoke sen­sors of the sys­tem de­tect any­thing. In this man­ner, fires will be able to be de­tected faster com­pared to the con­ven­tional fire and smoke alarm sys­tems be­ing used to­day. This will help save time in such sce­nar­ios where sec­onds can be crit­i­cal to sav­ing lives.”

Heyn went on: “As Bosch we’ve been early in pre­dict­ing the ex­tra­or­di­nary op­por­tu­nity cre­ated by the in­ter­net of things. We’ve been ac­tively shap­ing the web-con­nected world for the last 10 years. Stage by stage we’ve in­creased our soft­ware and IT ex­per­tise. To­day we’re a lead­ing IoT com­pany.” Bosch, us­ing its own “in­ter­net of things” (IoT) cloud, has al­ready con­ducted more than 270 projects in ar­eas such as mo­bil­ity, smart homes, smart cities and agri­cul­ture. The num­ber of sen­sors and de­vices con­nected via the Bosch IoT Suite has reached 8.5 mil­lion by in­creas­ing roughly 40 per­cent com­pared to the last year.

DE­TAILED POWER CON­SUMP­TION MON­I­TOR­ING

The Bosch Phan­tom plat­form has been de­vel­oped with the idea of track­ing con­tin­u­ous changes in the power con­sump­tion of in­sti­tu­tions and homes in mind. It makes it pos­si­ble to track power con­sump­tion, which is an im­por­tant source of cost in many sec­tors to­day, ac­cord­ing to re­gion and de­vice.

At homes, of­fices, hos­pi­tals, schools, data cen­ters, fac­to­ries and work­shops, rad­i­cal mea­sures are be­ing sought in power con­sump­tion. The first step of deal­ing with in­creas­ing costs of en­ergy is track­ing the power con­sump­tion of de­vices and pro­cesses. If you had the op­por­tu­nity to mea­sure and track power con­sump­tion ac­cord­ing to de­vices, hours, de­part­ments and re­gions, you would have a bet­ter idea of how to save on your elec­tric­ity bill. The Bosch Phan­tom plat­form makes this pos­si­ble by mak­ing the power con­sump­tion process trans­par­ent via con­tin­u­ous mea­sure­ments.

For ex­am­ple, con­cern­ing the lights left on at res­tau­rants or re­tail shops, mea­sures can be taken when ir­reg­u­lar power con­sump­tion is de­tected, or the mea­sure­ment data can be use­ful for the de­ci­sion process re­gard­ing any changes con­cern­ing the de­vices. Us­ing the Bosch Phan­tom plat­form, you can track how power con­sump­tion in­creases at which hours at a restau­rant chain in­stan­ta­neously.

At­ten­dees wait in line for a 5G ex­hi­bi­tion at the Qual­comm booth dur­ing CES 2019 con­sumer elec­tron­ics show, on Jan. 10, in Las Ve­gas, Ne­vada.
