With technological supremacy being built on the foundation of connectivity, Bosch has been developing local solutions that specifically cater to the needs of the Indian customer. “The Journey towards ‘connected’ began years ago at Bosch India. We have been investing in the region consistently and for the financial year 2017-18 we will invest over INR 900 crores,” mentioned, Mr. Soumitra Bhattacharya, president, Bosch Group India, and Managing Director, Bosch Limited. Elaborating on the need to invest today in future technologies, he further commented, “Roughly 15 percent of our yearly investment is directed towards R&D activities.
Bosch creates cutting-edge services to gather intelligence and deliver meaningful insight. Speaking in this regard, Mr. Vijay Ratnaparkhe, Managing Director and president, Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions, announced the launch of a locally developed Micro Climate Monitoring System (MCMS) in New Delhi. “Climate risk is Pertinent irrespective of where you are located. When mostly all aspects of daily life are connected and compatible, it only makes sense to have an accurate indicator of environmental quality levels to devise the best living and working conditions,” said Mr. Ratnaparkhe.
Doubling farmer income by implementing digital agriculture methods
By offering loT-enabled digital agriculture solutions, Bosch India is working towards improving drop yields. Solutions from the group can help optimize the utilization of resources such as water, electricity, fertilizer, crop-protection to reduce post-harvest losses in the food supply chain. Given the constraint on the size of operational land holding of the farmer, the solutions allow scalability of deployment towards better results, optimize operational costs and in-turn enhance their livelihoods.
