Algorithms against blindness

One of the things Bosch will show at their stand is how artificial intelligence can contribute to maintaining good health. Bosch’s Eye Care Solution is a handy device for eye examinations. With the help of teachable algorithms, it detects disease symptoms which could lead to blindness, enabling the disease to be treated in time. Particularly in regions with a poor medical infrastructure, this mobile solution helps to save many people’s eyesight.

Virtual test drive

ITK is a cross-sector solution developer and technology supplier to Bosch. Among other things, the subsidiary company offers software which tests driver assistance functions at the computer. Environmental conditions and sensor behavior are simulated in a realistic way. The software enables virtual test drives and sensor fusions to be carried out at an early stage of development, which reduces the number of actual test drives and saves money.

IoT made easy

With Bosch’s Cross Domain Development Kit (XDK), developers can quickly and easily link their machines and prototypes up to the Internet of Things (IoT). The XDK is a fully integrated hardware and software development platform with eight internal sensor parameters — ranging from gyroscopes to thermometers. The device is remotely controlled and data is retrieved via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The XDK reduces the development time and cost of IoT projects.

17,500 participants are expected to attend Slush this year.
