The next big thing in the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) is automobile electronics systems. Now hpematter.com lays out the astonishing future for IoT through the eyes and vision of Bosch Software Innovations CEO Rainer Kallenbach.
Rainer Kallenbach, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations, says that Bosch’s goal is to have each and every electronic component connectable to the internet. “HPE is an important ecosystem partner of the Bosch Group, supplying hardware and software.
But it isn’t enough that the devices can just connect to each other—they have to be able to actually talk to each other. Bosch Software Innovations has been hard at work making this happen by creating software components and modules for connecting and managing devices, such as the cloud-based Bosch IoT Suite. This is a collection of software services that allows the easy implementation of complex, large-scale IoT applications with the capacity to cover as many domains as possible.
With approximately 250 plants worldwide, the company is successfully implementing more than 100 projects for Industry 4.0. Bosch Software Innovations is using the Bosch Group’s substantial engagement in industrial production goods along with their software in the connected manufacturing area, thereby enhancing transparency and efficiency in manufacturing.
Kallenbach points to electronics in cars as the next big frontier for IoT and says a common platform should be a top priority. Bosch Group has a strong history in automotive innovation—they partnered with Intel in 1996 to develop the CAN bus, which has become the de facto standard for electronic communications in cars. Kallenbach says that Bosch Group created the CAN bus because, at the time, each car manufacturer had their own protocol and it was a nightmare for suppliers like Bosch.
The next step, which is happening now to some degree, is connectivity between domains and industries, such as automotive, energy, manufacturing, cities, homes and buildings. Kallenbach predicts that in the near future, cars will talk with homes, homes will talk with the energy industry, trucks will talk to factories, manufacturing companies will talk to their supply chains and so on and so forth. Countless sectors could be influenced in ways we can’t even imagine today.
Kallenbach’s advice for enterprises? “Do not wait for the Internet of Things to happen. It’s happening right now.
