ON THE SMART CITY REALITY:

"For a long time, the smart city was
a vision. We're helping make it reality.
Bosch is in an excellent position
to make the connected city a technological and commercial success."

launched early this year in Dallas,
TX, where Ericsson will install and
host an advanced traffic management system based on its connected
urban transport solution. The city
envisions a system that will enable
Dallas and adjacent cities the ability
to aggregate and analyze diverse,
real-time data from traffic sensors.
Connectivity was also at the core
of Bosch's CES exhibit, which featured connected cities that would
improve security, energy efficiency
and convenience. They also discussed connected mobility, connected homes and "Industry 4.0,"
the company's term for connected
manufacturing. Its vision of connected cities includes microgrids for
self-sufficient energy management
using traditional and renewable
fuels, parking solutions (including
automated valet parking which
involves a smartphone app and
a smart garage infrastructure) plus
a Bosch Vivatar app that lets people
contact friends and family and be
digitally "escorted" home via GPS.
Stefan Hartung, member of the
Robert Bosch GmbH board of management, explained the drive toward
smart city development during his
remarks to a Bosch event at CES.
"The arrival of the IoT a few years
ago, with its innovations in sensors,
artificial intelligence, big data and
predictive analytics, means that
many smart city initiatives are for the

first time not only possible, but also
economically viable," Hartung says.
He also tied smart buildings to the
value of smart cities.
"In order to unlock the full potential of smart cities, the homes and
buildings inside them will need to be
intelligent as well," Hartung says.
"Smart home technologies offer
countless benefits: they can take
care of time-consuming chores for
us, enable us to save energy and
money, and make our living spaces
more secure."
Mike Mansuetti, president of
Bosch North America Market,
focused on smart cities during his
presentation at CES. Emphasizing
the "booming" global smart city
market, Mansuetti envisioned
annual sales growth of 19 percent,
"reaching as much as $800 billion
worldwide by 2020."
Mansuetti focused on the value
of making special buildings especially smart. He cited hospitals, noting that sensor-based video
technology, lighting, and motion
detectors can be used in hospitals
for safety and security. Bosch's U.S.
subsidiary Climatec supplies building automation, security and fire
detection equipment for 15 Banner
Health Care facilities.
While all this is going on around
the world, future CES attendees can
keep an eye on smart city progress
year by year in Las Vegas' "Innovation
District" - also knvown as the
"digital playground."
Future CES attendees will soon get
a peek at a real world smart city.

Looking Ahead: Las Vegas' "Innovation District"
Sherwood, Las Vegas' CTO, expects to test projects within the pilot area.
That playground will allow planners to assess what works so that they
can "refine it, hone it, test it out and then, once it's good, we can expand it
throughout the community," Sherwood says.
