Bosch has announced the launch of INTEOX, a new camera platform designed to modernize the security and safety industry. The fully open platform, INTEOX gives users, system integrators, and application developers unlimited freedom for innovation and customization.
Shaping the future of security and safety
Bosch is demonstrating the vast potential of the IoT with INTEOX. The INTEOX open camera platform combines built-in Intelligent Video Analytics from Bosch with superb performance, a commonly used open OS, and the ability to add software apps securely. The new platform supports latest technologies. For example, neural network-based analytics, the next step in machine learning and Artificial Intelligence.
INTEOX enables app developers and integration partners to take advantage of its built-in intelligence and capabilities to easily develop unlimited software apps based on a common language. At the same time, system integrators can customize their security solutions to meet specific and changing customer requirements by adding apps and deploy them into INTEOX cameras. “As sophisticated sensors with Intelligent Video Analytics built-in as standard, INTEOX cameras can provide valuable data that can be analyzed and used in a wide variety of new and beneficial ways, many of which the industry can only imagine.
Bosch supports the platform with the highest levels of data security and privacy protection, and the quality and simplicity that comes with working with Bosch”, says Michael Seiter, senior vice president, responsible for the Bosch Video Systems & Solutions business. By having an open platform, developers can work with integrators to address their customer’s business challenges.
The INTEOX camera platform will power an entirely new line of MIC, AUTODOME, FLEXIDOME, and DINION fixed and moving cameras supported by an open IoT infrastructure. Developed by Security and Safety Things GmbH, a Bosch start-up company, this IoT infrastructure is based on four pillars:
The INTEOX cameras, together with the IoT infrastructure, enable app developers, system integrators, integration partners, and other market players to create customer-specific apps and insert them easily into INTEOX cameras. “INTEOX will fuel innovation that is beyond the scope of any single company today. The introduction of this open camera platform will accelerate the future growth of the entire security and safety industry,” Seiter says. The cameras based on the INTEOX platform are expected from July 2020 onwards.
