Connected

And once the machines are connected, you have to go all the way and consider workflow. We believe that Big Data needs Big Ideas. Therefore, we look at the entire data stream: from the source of the data to turning it into action. We know vehicles and their data streams, as we have been designing drive and implement control software for decades. This is why we know which data is available and can be re-used for other purposes far beyond the initial purpose.

The professional internet-of-things solutions at a glance

Bosch Rexroth provides the complete telematics solution, from data source via hardware and software to ready-to-use analytics apps.

1.

Data
acquisition

We at Bosch Rexroth know vehicle architectures, their data streams, and where we can find useful smart data without the need for additional sensors. This is because we have been dealing with the full mobile electronics stack including vehicle control software for years. And if the data does not yet exist, we provide a full range of smart sensors including edge analytics capabilities.

2.

Connectivity
hardware

We provide several rugged (IP67) connectivity devices to suit any vehicle and application regardless of the conditions they operate in. While we keep the harsh environment out, the Linux operating system and device management are very open for individualization and hardware independence.

3.

IT
Infrastructure

The Bosch IoT Suite hosts more than 10 million cars worldwide at highest security standards. It is open and modular. Device management and data management are disctinctly separated and individually bookable at different scales.

4.

Apps

Analyze and visualize your collected data the way you need it. Choose from a vast selection of off-highway specific apps covering fleet management, vehicle health, remote R&D services and vehicle operations workflows.

Why connectivity
from Bosch Rexroth?

We are

Much more

Than an IT company: Instead of custom-made big data, get smart data and ready data-to-action solutions from the ones who understand off-highway vehicles and their workflows all the way from the data streams down to the steel and iron part.

We are

Open

Enjoy the freedom of various interfaces to third party ERP solutions to seamlessly get your data to work within your established IT infrastructure.

We are

Modular

Select what you need. If you just need device management, book it without the data management. If you prefer another connectivity device, bring your own Linux device. If you want to start with fleet management only, just select these apps and leave the others out.

We are

Scalable

Start with a small-scale solution and scale up later. Just add other apps and device management features later as you progress.

We are

Secure

The Bosch IoT suite hosts more than 10 million cars. This is for sure not possible without clear and dedicated safety and security concepts with continuous upgrades. Benefit from this automotive power.
