Bosch Smart Solutions Conference 2016

Bosch, one of the leading world companies in the area of technology and associated services, is organising the "Bosch Smart Solutions” regional conference in the Congress Hall of the Zagreb Fair (Globus) on Wednesday, 30 November 2016 at 9:30. The conference will bring together Bosch partners and representatives of relevant institutions and organisations from Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as ensure a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience in the area of advanced technologies.

Three main topics will be discussed: Smart Cities, Smart Tourism and Industry 4.0. The interesting concept of the conference will offer smart solutions for the improvement of quality of life in cities, suggest creative solutions in tourism, but also show that modern industry can be connected and automated in a simple way.

Smart City

Bosch is working on increasing the intelligence of an entire city. Nowadays, almost 4 billion people live in cities worldwide. By 2050, this number will have increased to almost 6.5 billion. Smart connected cities have the potential to provide better quality of life to all citizens. The city of Monaco has been using Bosch technologies for digital connectivity for years by making use of the technological potential of the Internet of Things and services, while initially focusing on mobility. City infrastructure and public services – such as bus networks, parking management, paper and waste collection, and information on roadworks – are connected virtually, providing local residents with real-time information.

Industry 4.0

In the world of connected industry, also known as Industry 4.0, Bosch benefits first and foremost from the practical experience it gains by applying it in around 250 of its own facilities. The company translates this in-house experience into services for third parties. One of these is the Production Performance Manager, which visualizes production data in real time and autonomously initiates maintenance processes. Bosch expects that by 2020 connected industry will deliver a total of 1 billion euros in cost savings and generate an additional 1 billion euros in sales.


Tourism is a unique system of supply, production and consumption. As one of the most complex activities, it has the opportunity to be among the first to profit from smart solutions as well as to utilize them in an extremely wide range of areas. Smart solutions enable constant expansion, improvement and an increasingly precise individualisation of services as well as a targeted dataflow. Furthermore, they allow for an increasingly efficient use of resources and processes. In a broader business environment, they make it possible to increase the coherence of supporting activities. The question of competitiveness has been raised to a higher level. Bosch has implemented convincing answers worldwide.
