OSGi Community Event 2016 Presentation by Kai Hackbath (Bosch Software Innovations GmbH)
In February 2015 the Bosch Group acquired ProSyst Software as part of its IoT strategy. For Bosch Software Innovations, the Bosch Group’s software and systems house, OSGi offers the right balance between flexibility and hardware cost for IoT gateways. There is currently no other technology for IoT gateways that is both more future-proof and more mature than OSGi. In this presentation we want to give an overview of what has been achieved since then, looking at how the ProSyst’s OSGi technology has been integrated into the comprehensive Bosch IoT Suite as well as the Bosch IoT Cloud. We will also present a number of other IoT initiatives in the Bosch group, including smart home and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) where OSGi is already being used. Additionally we will give an outlook on future activities in IoT including our plans in standardization and open source initiatives.
