Bengaluru- Bosch India launched its locally developed air quality monitoring system in New Delhi at its flagship event, Future Connected: Bosch for a Smarter India. This is the first system in the market which is fraction of the size compared to other locally available products. “Bosch provides a smart air monitoring solution for the 21st century,” commented Mr. Shennoy RK, Senior Vice President, Bosch India. Bosch air quality monitoring system shares realtime reports of given regions for specific time periods.
Commenting further, Mr. Shennoy, mentioned, “Some of the world’s major metropolitan cities have been grappling with health concerns, especially from those relating to air quality. Bosch India’s air quality monitoring system data key air pollutants like PM, CO, NO, NO2, SO2 and O3 and environmental parameters such as temperature, relative humidity (RH), light, sound and pressure.” Viewed as a game changer, the system can be installed by property developers, industries and policymakers. Usage can also extend to factories of the future to boost efficiency and productivity, apart from being used in smart city grids or campuses.
Air Quality Systems in the IoT era
In the age of IoT when all devices are interconnected and can speak with each other, air quality monitoring is just one of many technologies that enable this connectivity and better decision making. Its applications can boost productivity in industrial scenarios by relaying critical information, and it can also enhance thequality of life for citizens. When all other aspects of daily life are connected and compatible, it only makes sense to have an accurate indicator of environmental quality levels to devise the best living and working conditions as well.
Energy efficiency, scalability and sustainability for real-world applications
The system from Bosch goes beyond just tracking of ambient air quality and the composition of pollutants in real-time. Bosch’s Air Quality Monitoring System also effectively visualizes, analyzes and acts on environmental air quality information. Information gathered by the system is relayed wirelessly over Wi-Fi or global system for mobile (GSM) networks, and this enables flawless deployment and data collection. Built to power air quality monitoring in the IoT age, the solution uses cloud analytics, data management and visualization software that makes it a cutting edge connected device. What this translates to is energy efficiency, scalability and sustainability for real-world applications.
Bosch MCMS platform has been built using Intel’s IoT technology which includes an Intel® Processor, Wind River® Helix Device Cloud (HDC™) device management capability, and platform hardened security through McAfee ®. This enables end-to-end integration that allows remote devices to collect, compute and com-municate data from sensors to network to cloud in a secure way. Elaborating on the collaboration, Mr. Jonathan Ballon, Vice President, Intel Internet of Things Group, said, “Rapid urbanization is putting additional burden on aging cities infrastructure leading to challenges, such as, air quality and citizen health. Staying true to our mission - to improve the life of every person on the planet – Intel has collaborated with Bosch to create an end to end air quality monitoring solution that enables cities with air quality information and improve the overall quality of life for citizens.”
