The “creative district” Ullsteinhaus in Berlin is intended to provide an unconventional working environment for Bosch employees: Instead of a room full of cubicles, the space provides a trailer (mobile home), workshops, and spaces that resemble forests. Those responsible for the project describe it as a “living IoT lab”: The trailer is equipped with Bosch Smart Home products; the kitchens feature networked appliances; employees are explicitly encouraged to integrate their developments into their everyday work; and external members of the IoT community are welcome to visit the campus.
Germany is a trailblazer in developing systems for the Internet of Things and its application in an industrial context. By 2022, revenues in this sector are expected to double in Germany, according to a forecast by the eco Association of the Internet Industry . More than 50% of the German IoT market is found in the automotive industry and mechanical and system engineering.
