What is Bosch IoT Insights?
Bosch IoT Insights is a fully managed cloud service that collects, processes, and stores your IoT data for further analysis. IoT data management provides the basis for optimizing devices and functions and developing new services and solutions.
You can use this service to process data generated by any device. The data you send to the cloud is first stored in a raw format in an object store. To ensure seamless integration of your data, Bosch IoT Insights offers a standard HTTPS API and an automotive-specific API. You can also ingest your data via the Bosch IoT Gateway Software or the Bosch IoT Remote Manager.
Once stored, the service enables you to decode, normalize, enrich, and clean your data. In a next step, you can query your data using NoSQL/MongoDB databases and visualize it using standard and user-defined dashboards. In addition, Bosch IoT Insights also features interfaces to common third-party data-analytics tools such as Matlab, Excel, and Tableau.
Key features of Bosch IoT Insights
Data collection:Seamlessly ingest your data via a standard HTTPS API, with Bosch IoT Gateway Software, Bosch IoT Remote Manager or Bosch IoT Things. Send your data to Bosch IoT Insights via direct networking, offline transmission of data packets, encrypted channels or raw data storage.
- Decode: You can make binary data readable with a data processor. The solution supports various industry-wide description standards such as ODX, Fibex, A2L, MDF, DBC and Google Protocol buffer
- Normalization: Allows to uniform data by bringing together different data sources and unifying their data structures
- Duplicate removal: Eliminates duplicate to guarantee high quality with reduced costs
- Filtering: Allows to define a specific query to filter out desired data
- Aggregation: Aggregates different data sources together
- Forwarding: Data of choice can be forwarded via the REST API to other services
- Alarm: Via email, SMS, and / or webhooks specific alarm messages or triggers can be performed
- Store raw (Object Store) and processed data (MongoDB) in a highly secure, cloud-based lambda infrastructure.
- The data can be exported in various formats, including JSON and CSV Interfaces available for common third-party tools such as Matlab, Excel, and Tableau
- Allows storage of various data types:
- Time Series data
- Aggregated counters
- Statistical Information
- Logging Information
- Simple database query (NoSQL / MongoDB-based)
The GUI provides an overview of your data
The filter functions (i.e., queries) allow searching specific data
Templates can be created for frequent database queries, which can be made also available to other project users
- Visualization & content management
Standard & custom dashboards for visualizing data (optimized also for mobile use) are available
Flexible and self-customizable dashboards created in 5 steps creating a full-fledged dashboard
