Bosch introduces new solution to combat counterfeiting

Source: IOT : IOT Secure Product Fingerprint in short The primary function of the Secure Product Fingerprint, a patented solution developed by the Bosch Corporate Research team in China, is to ensure product authenticity. It generates a unique “fingerprint” of a product and stores it in the cloud. Customers can then scan and verify a product using a smartphone, protecting against counterfeits. In addition, it provides track & trace capabilities that improve management of distribution channels and customer relationships. The Secure Product Fingerprint is currently available in China. Global trade doesn’t always present a bright picture. Case in point: the global counterfeit market. In 2017, the global value of counterfeit goods amounted to 1.2 Trillion US Dollars, by 2020 it is expected...

How manufacturers implement the Secure Product Fingerprint

Source: IOT : IOT Bosch Software Innovations recently introduced the Secure Product Fingerprint, a new anti-counterfeiting solution. It provides two distinct ways of ensuring product authenticity. First, there is the Artificial Fingerprint – a QR code enhanced by embedded micro-features. The second option is the Natural Fingerprint, in which the surface of the product itself is used for validation. What is more, the Secure Product Fingerprint opens up opportunities that go beyond combating counterfeits. In particular, it can be used for product tracking and enhancing customer relationship management (CRM). What does it mean to put this solution into practice? To give you a better understanding, we talked to two manufacturers who are already implementing it. Source: Bosch Bosch Rexroth Chin...

How to reduce traffic accidents with IoT data

Source: IOT : IOT Timo Gessmann Timo Gessmann is the director of the Bosch IoT Lab. Together with his team he is working on IoT-enabled new business fields with a focus on mobility, energy and health as well as IoT business models, artificial intelligence and blockchain technology. Even though the number of fatal road accidents in the European Union has fallen substantially over the last two decades, there were still almost 26,000 deaths due to road accidents in 2016. The European Commission has set itself the target of bringing this number down to close to zero by 2050. But what can be done to improve road safety? This is one of the questions being investigated by the Bosch IoT Lab. The goal is to prevent accidents on public roads based on IoT data. We want to make drivers aware of possib...

How to identify the right IoT platform? Ask the users!

Source: IOT : IOT The IoT User Survey In order to assemble a broad foundation for guidance for companies looking for the right IoT Platform, the teknowlogy Group asked over 2,000 users to share their perception of 38 Internet of Things platforms. The author of this post shares some of the highlight results with us. There is hardly a market more dynamic and complex as that relating to IoT platforms, where a huge number of providers are offering highly diverse options. It is almost impossible for buyers to find their way through the maze of information about what each provider offers, each of them also serving different customer requirements. Besides, the IoT platforms we see on the market today do not yet support each and every client need. Bosch IoT Suite ranks top The IoT survey participa...
