Bosch has announced the launch of Inteox, a camera platform designed to modernise the security and safety industry. Inteox gives users, system integrators, and developers unlimited freedom for innovation and customisation. The Inteox open camera platform combines built-in Intelligent Video Analytics from Bosch with a commonly used open OS, and the ability to add software apps securely.
It supports technologies such as neural network based analytics, the next step in machine learning and AI. Inteox enables app developers and integration partners to take advantage of its built-in intelligence and capabilities to develop unlimited software apps based on a common language.
At the same time, system integrators can customise security systems to meet specific and changing customer requirements by adding apps and deploy them into Inteox cameras.
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, a Bosch start-up company, this IoT infrastructure is based on four pillars:
- An open OS based on Android Open Source Project and strengthened for increased security
- An application store to access relevant app information, browse the public store and purchase ready-to-use apps for all Inteox cameras
- A web portal for app developers and designers that offers information and tools to develop and test apps
- A device management portal that shows app and device health statistics and enables easy management of apps
The first cameras based on the Inteox platform are expected from July 2020 onwards.
