Bosch AIoT

Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions’ (RBEI) new Phantom Edge, an AIoT platform, combines the power of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things to provide real-time data on energy consumption.

Dattatri Salagame, President and Managing Director of RBEI during the launch, said, “With over 130 years of deep engineering experience solving real-world problems and catering to the demand for niche solutions across industries. Phantom Edge has potential applications in a number of industries like healthcare, retail, commercial spaces, agriculture, mobility, industrial manufacturing etc. RBEI’s vision is to provide smart solutions for the globe, and Phantom Edge is a step in that direction. We believe we have built a product that is truly invented for life.”

Phantom Edge, however, collects power signatures with non-intrusive sensors and analyses them with ML (Machine Learning) algorithms on edge to deliver a real-time picture of electrical energy consumption, operating utilization, electrical characteristics, and appliance-level information, creating its digital twin. This data aids in the improvement of sustainability and productivity indicators. Moreover, it gives information on vital safety, machine maintenance, and defect early warnings.

Phantom Edge, according to Bosch, is a robust cloud and on-premise ecosystem. It enables production efficiency, real-time alerts, notifications, and timely actionable insights. A user-configurable portal and dashboard provide transparency and visibility of manufacturing operations, worker productivity, and machine efficacy. In addition, it automates data collection and measures precise downtime by offering management with timely, bias-free, and precise data on which to set goals, track performance, analyze, and improve on a continuous basis. Some of the use cases are:

It delivers real-time information on machine OEE (availability, performance, and quality), part count, and energy usage. As a result of its cost-effective and non-intrusive productivity and sustainability activities in the organization, the need for costly on-site IT equipment can be eliminated.

However, Bosch Phantom Edge provides an outline for multiple industries to jump-start a digital journey, such as asset-intensive industries. These industries include automotive, retail stores, commercial spaces, manufacturing setups, industrial production units, SMEs, airports, oil & gas terminals, and construction.  It provides customized advisory sessions, consulting workshops, and a content-rich knowledge portal.
